Are you using SharePoint and want to know how to leverage Silverlight?  Have you seen the Blueprints project on Codeplex?  But what if those particular implementations don’t meet your needs and you want to create your own contained web part with your Silverlight 2 application?

Kirk Evans writes about a method of doing this in a recent post: Hosting Silverlight in SharePoint.  Take a look at Kirk’s post with a step-by-step guide of getting started with his method.  In looking at the method he describes, it is conceivable that you actually could make a more generic web part that serves as a XAP host and allows the user to set the property of the Source to a URI for a Silverlight 2 application.

Hmmm…I wonder if Kirk is up to modifying it ;-).

UPDATE (08 OCT 2008):

Looks like there is a similiar web part in the works already!  Thanks to a note from Andy Nogueira, he has a project (also on Codeplex) for SilverPart, which is a Silverlight wrapper web part for SharePoint.  Thanks for the pointer Andy!
