    Thanks for the help but its still not working (Twitterlight). I'm just redirected to a telling me that the page I wanted requires Silverlight.

    I asked other ppl to check it and all had the same problem (although in fairness I think all of them hadn't yet installed Silverlight so they would have all been fresh installs).

    @Sam:  Try the 2.0 beta.  Hopefully that will fix it.  If not, contact me with the link at the top and we'll figure out how to get you up and running then post it back here so everyone can get it to work.

    I have the same problem as Sam - I have IE8 and the 2.0 beta released after MIX08 and I get told I need Silverlight.  I have other 2.0 sites that are fine.

    Happy to help diagnose if required.

    @Sam and @David Overton:

    I got in contact with Steve and some Silverlight 1.1 calls were foobar'ed in 2.0 beta.  The app I wrote had the same issue and I just updated it yestarday.  Steve is going to update this when he gets the chance.

    1.1 was cool but since it was Alpha, stuff like this was bound to happen.

    Hey all, thanks for checking out the article.  I've updated http://www.twitterlight.com to use the Silverlight 2.0 Beta 1, and the installation prompt is (finally) pointing to the correct version.  

    The latest code (C#) is posted above as well.

    my apologies for the confusion... aren't alphas fun!!  -steve

    One more update: I heard that some Mac+FireFox users were having trouble typing in the ComponentOne Textboxes.  I've updated the app to use the new Silverlight Beta textboxes.  I don't have a Mac to test on, so feedback is appreciated.

    Nice work

    But the password field seems to be a normal field

    yeah, I had to drop the sapphire password txt control because they didn't work on Apple+Firefox systems.  Didn't see this functionality in the Silverlight controls.

    plus, this is more C4Fun than production app. <g>

    Lots of errors with the C1 library now. C1Label isn't even in there anymore. Too many to go and fix for me.

    The posted (original) source is using the defunct SL Beta 2.  You can download the SL 2 RTW release code at:

    I'll update the article links asap.  Thanks all.
