The examples in this section use the Lync Silverlight contextual applications that are described in the Working with Lync 2010 Contextual Data Methods and Events MSDN article.

  • To open Silverlight contextual applications in the Conversation Window Extension (CWE), include the InternalURL and ExternalURL entries in the registry.

  • To add the start link notification to a message, add the Path entry to the registry.

To display the CWE and exclude the start link notification

  1. In figure 1, when registering the Silverlight application, include the InternalURL and ExternalURL entries. For more information, see Application Registration for Lync 2010 Contextual Applications.
