Hey Thibaut, sorry for the very delayed response …
Every Silverlight object you place on a page is sandboxed, so other
Silverlight objects cannot access each other. So a Silverlight
greasemonkey-esk thing isn’t really possible. =( When you create a
Silverlight object, you implicitly say whether you want to use the
Silverlight 1 or Silverlight 2 behavior with the ‘source’ attribute;
when you give it a XAML file:
You’re saying you want to use Silverlight 1, which bypasses the CLR and
However, when you give it a xap file:
You’re saying you want to use Silverlight 2, which gives you Ruby,
Python, C#, etc. Unfortunately, there’s no way to combine these “modes”,
the Silverlight control. However, if you’re just using HTML, you can
use Ruby to monkey-patch the page. =)
Hope that answers your questions,

Subject: Re: [Ironruby-core] Manipulating Silverlight controls
dynamically from IronRuby - is it currently possible ?
thanks a lot for all this, that will definitely be useful!
Is it currently possible to add children to an existing Silverlight control from the ruby code side ?
Any hint most welcome on that point too !
