in silverlight how to open a file and convert it to stream (dont use open filedialog/savefiledialog but use only path of the file in web)
can any one answer

Opening a file has nothing to do with dialogs. There is no "convert it to stream".
See System.IO. In most cases, you would use the class StreamReader or StreamWriter. These classes has underlying Stream as a property. You can construct instances of these classes with stream or a file name. Please see all the constructors and the help for further detail. Always use using block. There is no much difficulties in all this activity.

Generally, this works, but... please see also the Answer by Abhinav.

Silverlight runs in a sandboxed environment.
You cannot do this in a web application.
