Silverlight on DNN - Step by step

In my previous post as I posted about implemeting Silverlight support on DotNetNuke, I decided to give it a try. Just tried it on my system.

You can try it out following these steps:

First download the Silverlight DotNetNuke Module

Then you have to upload this Module. For this login to your Superuser account that is as host,

  • Navigate to Host -> Module Definitions.

  • In the Module Menu, click Upload New Module.
  • Click the Browse button and select the downloaded Silverlight DotNetNuke Module.
  • Click Add to add the file to the files to upload list.
  • Click Upload New File. The Resource Upload Log will be displayed details of the success or failure of the upload.
  • Click Return to return to the Module Definitions page

Once this Silverlight module is uploaded, we want to add this module. So follow these steps.

  • Select Add New Module and select ‘Silverlight video’ from the drop down list of Module. Enter any title say ‘Silverlight Trial’ in the Title field.And fill other fields as required. I have left it as it is, since its just trial.
  • Click Add Module button or click Add to add the module to the page.
  • Once added, you can see it in the List of modules as shown.
  • And Silverlight Module being shown below in the content pane or you can goto Home , from there it can be placed.
  • Now from the Configure menu of this module select configure and brows to select the video to upload and press Upload button.
  • Click the Back button and the video will start playing. Use the buttons to stop, pause, play or Full screen.
