SL App shows white screen until clicked RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey Guys,

     We have a SL app that is working fine for us when we go directly to the hosting web page on our external server. But, when that page is contained in an iFrame being hosted by a 3rd party server, the SL control remains a blank white screen until the user clicks on it. Once the user clicks on it, the loading spinner fires up and the app runs fine. It doesn't seem to be consistent either. Some times it works, some times it doesn't. Some users (myself included) have never seen it happen, others it happens to fairly regularly.

    Any idea what would cause this? Or how to fix it?

  • Hi,

    I never encounter this issue myself before, but I find this post that may help:


    Please try to give your silverlight object tag a Height to see if it works.

  •  That was it! To further identify the issue for anyone else who runs into this:

    If the Silverlight control is contained in an iFrame that is not visible when the page loads (you have to scroll the page to see it), then the control will not load until you move the mouse over the control.

    If you set the height of the object tag in the HTML, it will load correctly.
