Silverlight keyboard input, an alternative

As you may know I’ve been tring to get Silverlight to accept keyboard input and was talking to a couple of Microsoft guys today at an MSDN Silverlight roadshow. The sent me over to the demo site "Ah but will it take odd keys" I asked smugly. He tried it and it did, hmm. So as soon as I got home I opened the site to look for myself. Immediately I spotted what they had done. If you click in the input box and then resize the browser window you’ll see it too! They’ve repositioned a HTML input box into a white silverlight rendered box. Ok so it’s a nice workaround but it isn’t really solving the problem, but I thought I’d blog about it as an alternative solution.
