The Silverlight plug-in can display in either embedded mode or in full-screen mode:
- In embedded mode, the plug-in displays within the Web browser.
- In full-screen mode, the plug-in resizes to the current resolution of the screen and displays on top of all other applications, including the browser.
The Content.IsFullScreen property determines whether the Silverlight plug-in displays as a full-screen plug-in or as an embedded plug-in. If a Web page hosts multiple Silverlight plug-ins, only one plug-in can be in full-screen mode at one time.
When a Silverlight plug-in displays in full-screen mode, it briefly displays the message "Press ESC to exit full-screen mode".

This limitation of keyboard input during full-screen mode is a security feature, and is intended to minimize the possibility of unintended information being entered by a user. In full-screen mode, the only input allowed is through the following keys.
ARROW KEYS, SPACEBAR, TAB, PAGE UP, PAGE DOWN, HOME, END, ENTER
To switch to full screen mode use the following code
