Content Class

Reports details about the instantiation settings of a-based application, and exposes some of the HTML DOM values for the hosted Silverlight plug-in instance. The Content object contains APIs that specifically relate to the Silverlight content area (the area that is declared by the width and height in the initialization).

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use this class in a variety of ways.

Private WithEvents rootPage As Page = New Page()
Private WithEvents htmlContent As Content
Private Sub Application_Startup(ByVal o As Object, ByVal e As StartupEventArgs) Handles Me.Startup
    Me.RootVisual = rootPage
    htmlContent = Me.Host.Content
End Sub

Private Sub ToggleFullScreen(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As MouseButtonEventArgs) Handles rootPage.MouseLeftButtonDown
    Me.Host.Content.IsFullScreen = Not Me.Host.Content.IsFullScreen
End Sub

Private Sub DisplaySizeInformation( _
    ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) _
    Handles htmlContent.FullScreenChanged, htmlContent.Resized

    Dim message As String = String.Format( _
        "ActualWidth={0}, ActualHeight={1}", _
        Me.Host.Content.ActualWidth, _
        Me.Host.Content.ActualHeight)

    rootPage.LayoutRoot.Children.Clear()
    Dim t As New TextBlock()
    t.Text = message
    rootPage.LayoutRoot.Children.Add(t)

End Sub
Page rootPage = new Page();
private void Application_Startup(object sender, StartupEventArgs e)
{
    this.RootVisual = rootPage;

    rootPage.LayoutRoot.MouseLeftButtonDown +=
        delegate(Object s, MouseButtonEventArgs args) {
            this.Host.Content.IsFullScreen =
                !this.Host.Content.IsFullScreen;
        };

    this.Host.Content.FullScreenChanged += 
        new EventHandler(DisplaySizeInformation);

    this.Host.Content.Resized += 
        new EventHandler(DisplaySizeInformation);
}

private void DisplaySizeInformation(Object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    String message = String.Format(
        "ActualWidth={0}, ActualHeight={1}",
        this.Host.Content.ActualWidth,
        this.Host.Content.ActualHeight);

    rootPage.LayoutRoot.Children.Clear();
    rootPage.LayoutRoot.Children.Add(
        new TextBlock { Text = message });
}
