Silverlight Programming Models
This topic contains the following sections.
The Silverlight programming model defines its set of objects as object trees that enable you to populate the initial content of a Silverlight-based application by loading XAML, and then adjust the object tree at run time. The Silverlight object tree is exposed through the Silverlight plug-in, which you create as a plug-in instance on a Web page. Silverlight uses the ActiveX plug-in model for Microsoft Internet Explorer, and uses the Netscape API plug-in model for other browsers.
