Silverlight EnableFrameRateCounter not displayed in IE status bar

As you may know you can set the EnableFrameRateCounter=”true” property of the control to display the actual Silverlight framerate in the status bar of the browser.

(You can also set the enableFramerateCounter param if you use the tag or even enable it by code:

Application.Current.Host.Settings.EnableFrameRateCounter = true;)

But if nothing appears in your IE status bar you may have to change some security settings:

In IE go to: Tools / Options / Security

Select “Internet” zone and “Custom level…”
In the “Settings” window go to the “Scripting” section and enable “Allow status bar updates via script”.
