Silverlight not working with Chrome

    Question

  • Seems that the Silverligt 2.0 behaviour cannot be relied upon in Chrome Browser

    The Silverlight Map Controls, do not Zoom In/Out under Mouse Wheel in Chrome.

    Opening New HTML broswr pages via System.Windows.Browser.HtmlPage.Window.Navigate(new Uri ... does not work in Chrome either.

    So I have worries over how much Silverlight really works in other Browsers as has been claimed. From my experience, its looking like only IE can be relied upon to deliver all the Silverlight Features, which is not very satisfactory.

  • Hi, I know this is kind of an old thread, but this is to future readers:

    I used the following workaround so that it's possible to navigate in Chrome too.
    Instead of using

    System.Windows.Browser.HtmlPage.Window.Navigate(New Uri("your_URL_here", UriKind.Relative)),

    I used

    System.Windows.Browser.HtmlPage.Window.Eval("window.location.href = 'your_URL_here';")

    and it worked.

    I got the idea from here:
