    This is an architecture question. I am wanting to write a a dashboard Silverlight control that follows the MVVM pattern and I have some what started on this application as standalone Silverlight App. My question though is before I get to much further along should I go back and architect this as a Pluggable Module for Sitefinity or would it be best to just go ahead and create my App as a standalone App and then host it on a user control or something in Sitefinity?

    I would like my users, executive management types, to be able to drag over the dashboards they want to see from the Toolbox of a page.

    Sorry for whatever reason I can't seem to get my head around the best way to approach this.

    Hello Garry Clark,

    I think that the only possible solution is to use the <asp:Silverlight> control, in which you can host your Silverlight application. You can use it in composite control I guess, then include this control in the toolbox.

    All the best,
