  • The Login and the consent page in Live SDK are hosted in a popup control and its not a seperate page and therfore the 1inch margin. THere is no way to customize this popup control. Is there a specific reason you don't want it that way.

    Thanks

    thanks for the reply as far as the popup control's 1 inch gap makes the app look like the developer did not align page correctly from a user stand point the popup controls we use in our app usally completely cover any other pages in background. would there be a reason why the popup should have this gap at the top?

  • This is clearly a bug in the SDK.  It appears as though the Microsoft.Live.PhoneAuthClient class is hardcoding a 15 pixel vertical offset.  My guess is that this was a really bad hack to attempt to not cover the system tray.  For any apps out there (and there are a lot of them) who choose to hide the system tray, we get this fugly gap at the top of our screen.
