  • Hi Srilatha,

    According to your description, I’d like to suggest you to use tooptip to accomplish the intention. You can add the tooltip to the control which displays the user name and custom the tooltip as your requirement.

    About logging in an application, you can refer to the article below:

    Walkthrough: Using Authentication Service with Silverlight Navigation Application

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee942451(v=vs.91).aspx

    It introduces using WCF RIA service to log in or out a page.

    About the usage of  tooltip, you can refer to the link below:

    ToolTip Styles and Templates

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd334410(v=vs.95).aspx

    Here is a screenshot of tooptip below. Hope it can meet your requirement.

    You can also use expander control of Silverlight to meet your requirement. You can customize the expander content by putting the grid or stackpanel in it to create whatever layout you want. But it will get expanded only when user will click on it. If you want to appear on hover then you can go with Yunjie Peis solution.
