Today I added a small Silverlight application to an existing and styled website, the app was surrounded by the usual <div>:
1: <div style="height: 100%">
2: <asp:Silverlight ID="Xaml1" runat="server" Source="~/ClientBin/XXX.xap"
3: MinimumVersion="2.0.31005.0" Width="100%" Height="100%" />
In IE7 all gone well but in FF the Silverlight application appeared to be completely collapsed and not visible at all. After some research I found that the problem is in the way Firefox renders the <object> tag when its height is relative (that is it’s a percentage). Since none of the containers around the Silverlight <object> tag had a Height defined Firefox assumed to use 0.
You have 3 possible workarounds to this problem:
- You can set a Fixed Height for the Silverlight application (not always a good solution)
- You can set the Height of all the main containers of the page to 100%, that is: <html>, <body> and <form> tags if you use ASP.NET, with something like this:
1: <style type="text/css">
2: html, body, form
4: height: 100%;
- You can use the following style for the <div> that wraps the Silverlight plug-in:
1: <div style="position: fixed; height: 100%; width: 100%">
2: ...silverlight app...
Choose the solution that fit best with your current styling mode.
