Dojo toolkit and Silverlight !

Yesterday, I discovered support for Silverlight rendering in Dojo toolkit’s ‘GFX’ package. It enables drawing of 2D geometrical shape, using a cross platform API.  The other rendering options available are VML and SVG. This means that programers can easily switch between one of these platforms, based on need. It provides a nice platform for interactive vector graphics in web browser.

However, I don’t think many XAML specific features can be exploited via this API. But, one can always throw in some custom code to supplement such requriements.   Usage of silverlight with javascript has huge potential in my opinion.

This link has some nice information on using Silverlight rendering in Dojo toolkit:
