Property Value

Type: System.String
The location of the Silverlight source.


The Silverlight source is usually a XAML source file or a XAP source package.

XAP packages are supported only if the MinimumVersion property is "2.0" or greater.

If the Source property value is a .xaml file, the file cannot contain any Silverlight 2 content. For example, the top-level element in the .xaml file may be a Canvas element, but not a UserControl or StackPanel element, since these are valid only for Silverlight 2 content.

Also, when using a .xaml file as the Source property, there cannot be any attributes in the XAML elements that are valid for only Silverlight 2 content, such as an x:Class attribute since you cannot have managed code code-behind (C# or Visual Basic) files for Silverlight 1.0 content.


For a list of the operating systems and browsers that are supported by Silverlight, see Supported Operating Systems and Browsers.
