How to set Silverlight windowless?

Post by LuckieLuuk » Fri Mar 28, 2014 10:27 am

I want to test a silverlight application and Ranorex tells me to "Please make sure that the windowless property of your silverlight application is set to 'False'"
I looked at a microsoft page that described how to do it (linked from ranorex) (I cannot post the link here with a new account)

But I still cannot figure out how to! Do I change the AUT? or IE?
Im not very experienced working with computers as you might have picked up...

Hello LuckieLuuk,
The Silverlight plugin can be found in the HTML source of the AUT as an object tag resembling:

Code: Select all

<form id="form1" runat="server" style="height:100%">
    <div id="silverlightControlHost">
       <object data="data:application/x-silverlight-2," 
            type="application/x-silverlight-2" width="100%" height="100%">
Beneath this object tag you will see several properties of Silverlight set by default, you simply need to add:

Code: Select all

<param name="Windowless" value="False" />
However, I doubt this is even necessary as the default value for Windowless is False.
Hope this helps! :D
