Microbe v2 – Silverlight and Flash communicating via JavaScript

September 7, 2007

In recent conversations the topic of interoperability between Flash and Silverlight has come up.  Even though you may be interested in using Silverlight in some situations you may not want to rewrite existing Flash components just yet.

Smartly both integrate well with JavaScript so this is very possible.  One of the best examples of this concept that stuck in my mind was the Microbe sample that Lee Brimelow created.

Noticing that the sample needed to be updated to the latest Silverlight bits, I sent off a quick email and Lee blessed the conversion.  And now we can return to the city of Microbe where Silverlight and Flash peacefully toss the ball back and forth.
