Silverlight Widget

This topic describes how to configure the Silverlight widget.

To embed a Silverlight widget from another server or in an on-premise environment, download the Visifire components from and install them in the \productName\Application Engine\bin directory on the SBM Application Engine Web Server. Contact your Application Engine server administrator for assistance if you do not have access to this server.

For detailed Visifire installation instructions, visit and read the "Introduction" section.

Because the Silverlight widget is not embeddable across sites, embed its content in the Web Page widget. For information about the Web Page widget, see Web Page Widget.

General Tab

The following table describes the fields on the General tab of the Property Editor for this widget.
Field Description
Name Type the name by which the widget is uniquely identified. No other widget or control on this form can have the same name.
Caption Type the text to appear in the title bar above the widget.

If you leave this field blank, the widget will not have a title bar.


Type or paste the valid Silverlight code. When the form is displayed, the code is rendered by the Web browser. Alternately, you can use the string builder tool to insert references to table fields and form controls.

Important: If the code you type in this field includes any opening or closing braces ("{" or "}"), precede each of them with a backslash ("\"). Otherwise, SBM Composer tries to interpret the text inside of the braces as the name of a field or control on the form. (If you paste code with braces, you are prompted whether you want a backslash to be added. If you use the Treat '{' as a literal option in the string builder tool, a backslash is automatically added.)
Tip: An alternative way of doing this is to create a Web page at an accessible URL, include the Silverlight content on that page, and specify the URL of the page in a Web Page widget that you place on your custom form.
Options Border: Select this check box to draw a thin line around the widget.

Scroll bars: Select this check box to include scroll bars in the widget. This provides more content than the allotted space.

Description Type an optional description for the widget.
