Blank Webpart on Sample 1

Dec 31, 2008 at 7:41 PM

I'm trying to get the first sample up and all I am getting is a blank space where the content should be.  The Silverlight control is there, I can right-click it.  I have:

  • Carefully checked the web.config modifications
  • Verified that the path to the .xap file in the list is valid
  • Played around with the mime types
  • Rebuilt and redeployed several times
  • Checked the event and ULS logs

I'm stumped.

One more tweak to the mime types did the trick.  The blueprint docs specify this:
application/x-silverlight-2-b2

Didn't work.  In addition I tried
application/x-silverlight-2
application/x-silverlight

None worked.  One of the other posts referenced a blog entry they had put up and their mime type was this
application/x-silverlight-app

Now this worked.  Eh?  I'll confess confusion here.  Anybody understand this?
