Ensure Your Silverlight App Has Focus When The Page Loads

Assuming that your SL app is running in-browser, you may want your SL app to have initial focus, e.g. when it loads a splash screen, the OK button has focus.

You can help achieve this by using System.Windows.Browser.HtmlPage.Plugin.Focus(); in your loaded event handler for your usercontrol\childwindow, e.g.:


        private void ChildWindow_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
            // ensure SL plugin has focus

    If you don't mind me asking I just wanted to ask on what is the difference between blogenenigne and wordpress blogs? Is it easier to use or more efficient? I amseeing a lot of blogs powered by this software popping up lately and wondering if it is better or not? Thanks...
