XBAP gadget

It seems that we can only embed XBAP Iframe to create a WPF gadget, the WPF
application will not
work at this time (I tried Stanimir's demo, it is not different to a
standalone WPF application, it will
not be able to dock into the sidebar when move the "Hello gadget" closing to
the sidebar, I don't
know if it is still a sidebar gadget if it could not dock into the sidebar).

The problem I met in XBAP gadget is that it is difficult to set padding so
that the gadget could be
drag out of the sidebar. the size of my XBAP is 190X145, my html launcher is
<html>
<head>
<title>XeePet Gadget</title>

<style>
body {
width:145;
height:190;
padding:0;
margin:0;
background:black;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<iframe height="190"
width="145"
src="XbapGadget.xbap" />
</body>
</html>

when it is running, it just dock into the sidebar and the drag handle will
not show up no
matter cursor move to anywhere on the gadget. I tried change the padding or
margin,
the drag handle did show up, but the untransparentable background make the
gadget
pretty ugly.

I tried other gadget came with the Vista such as clock, any position of the
gadget is draggable,
how did they implement that, Is it possible in WPF XBAP gadget?

of makes sense:
