So in Silverlight 2 for some time we could do this:
System.Windows.Browser.HtmlPage.Window.Navigate(new Uri("foobar.com"), "_blank");
well this is all good and works but in some cases in IE when redirecting to a url that is not a page but a binary of some kind there seems to be an issue with opening the file and the browser window closes. ???
since I don't have time to work out if this is a bug or not or some 'feature'... Here is my cheater method that seems to work fine...
so I added this to the App:
HtmlElement Script = HtmlPage.Document.CreateElement("script");
and then from my user control I added this:
App.InsertECMAScript("ProcessWindowOpen(\"" + URL + "\");");
and poof it goes away....??? not sure what is up with that but works.
