Silverlight full screen, now with limited keyboard support

Since I blogged about the difficulties of not having keyboard support in Silverlight when you’ve gone full-screen I thought I’d better say that with the latest release of Silverlight 2 we can now access the basic keyboard navigation, e.g. tab, arrow keys, space, etc. It’s better than nothing I suppose. I think I’d prefer some form of keyboard overlay that lights up as you type, so for those paranoid about password sniffing attacks the user could see that the application is catching the keyboard messages regardless of the visual state of underlying application. Somehow I doubt that will happen.
