  • Hi Prapthi, the apps for Office platform does not support Silverlight or Flash. As an open platform, we fully support and encourage the use of standard web technologies such as HTML and JavaScript to build apps. 

    Thanks,

  • The Project SDK states the following "A task pane app can be developed with HTML 5, JavaScript, JQuery and other JavaScript libraries, or it can be developed with ASP.NET, SilverLight, and the .NET Framework 4 library. The app can be developed to save data locally or write data to an external location."

    Am i misunderstanding or is the documentation incorrect?

    Thanks,

  • Not supporting silverlight is sad. This page says it doesn't support it, or maybe they changed the text to be more correct -> http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/office/jj163050%28v=office.14%29.aspx

    "A task pane app can be developed with HTML 5, JavaScript, JQuery and other JavaScript libraries. A task pane app does not directly support ActiveX, Silverlight, or Flash components. Although an app for Office could use an IFrame element to access a server-side web application that uses ASP.NET and the .NET Framework 4.5 library, that kind of solution is not recommended or supported. The app can be developed to save data locally or write data to an external location."
