document.location RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Hello All,


    I am not sure that the JavaScript subforum is the best place for this question but I couldn't think of a better one.  My question is essentially this - will Silverlight allow me to do the equivalent of document.location = url as I would be able to do using JS?  I am only just starting out with Silverlight so I hope the question is not too naive. I'd much appreciate any help.

  • Do you want to redirect using Javascript or Silverlight?

    JS: In C#, you can invoke javascript functions by utilizing the Html DOM

    SL: You can call the HtmlPage.Window.Navigate method

    string url = "index.html";
    HtmlPage.Window.Navigate(new Uri(url, UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute));

  •  Thanks.  Unless I am mistaken HtmlPage.Window.Navigate will open a new tab in the browser?  What I want is to replace the current tab - the one with the Silverlight plug in - with the new url.

  •  Thanks.  I take it that this will replace the current document, the one with the Silverlight plugin, with the new URL?


    On a somewhat unrelated note - can two Silverlight apps, both delivered from the same domain - access the Silverlight Isolated Storage?

  • Yes - it will take you to that page.

    Yes - there is per user and per application isolated storage:

  • The HtmlPage.Window.Navigate method opens the page in the same tab / window.  If you define its second parameter (target) if you want it to go to another window or target.
