Silverlight 2: Updated HtmlExtensions.cs utility class

5 March 2008

I've gone ahead and updated the HtmlExtensions class that I previously blogged.  The class is now updated to reflect the new HTML DOM bridge APIs in Silverlight 2.  To be honest, I'd recommend dropping this class as a lot of its functionality (JavaScript eval, alert, and retrieving the <body /> element) are now available within Silverlight 2 Beta 1, which rocks!

To use this component in your own Silverlight 2 Beta 1 project, you can grab the bits either way:
Download HtmlExtensions.cs
Download HtmlExtensions.dll (zip, referenced component can be used by C# and VB Silverlight 2 beta 1 apps)

New HTML DOM bridge APIs that relate to this, and can be used directly from the Window instance of HtmlPage: Eval, Alert, and on HtmlPage, Body:

I'm also now offering a small assembly version of this class for any Visual Basic developers to use in their application targeting Silverlight 2.

Hope this helps!
