vs2010 silverlight designer error

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

Hi all,

After installing Visual Studio 2010 and Silverlight Tools for VS 2010, I tried to generate a new Silverlight project and got an error in the xaml designer. 

None of the .xaml files generated by VS can be opened in design mode.

I have the KB30319.348 installed. The error is reproduced below:



Value cannot be null.Parameter name: parentContext

at Microsoft.Windows.Design.Metadata.ReflectionMetadataContext..ctor(IMetadataContext parentContext) at MS.Internal.Host.ProjectMetadataContext..ctor(IMetadataContext platformMetadata, AssemblyReferenceProvider referenceProvider) at MS.Internal.Host.ProjectMetadataContext.FromReferences(AssemblyReferenceProvider referenceProvider) at MS.Internal.Designer.VSDesigner.GetMetadataForDesignerContext(DesignerContext designerContext) at MS.Internal.Host.PersistenceSubsystem.Load() at MS.Internal.Host.Designer.Load() at MS.Internal.Designer.VSDesigner.Load() at MS.Internal.Designer.VSIsolatedDesigner.VSIsolatedView.Load() at MS.Internal.Designer.VSIsolatedDesigner.VSIsolatedDesignerFactory.Load(IsolatedView view) at MS.Internal.Host.Isolation.IsolatedDesigner.BootstrapProxy.LoadDesigner(IsolatedDesignerFactory factory, IsolatedView view) at MS.Internal.Host.Isolation.IsolatedDesigner.BootstrapProxy.Loa

Showing Designer error for Silverlight App when trying to access resource which contains code e.Resu

Environment is: Silverlight 4, VS Studio 2010. Designer is showing error in a Silverlight App when trying to access a resource as below. And there are no build or runtime errors. Extensive research found that, in the "InvestorsProvider" class I am using wcf services, which has a callback method. In the call back method I am using this statement "this.MyProperty = e.Result" where e.Result is ObservableCollection. If I remove the e.Result it is not showing any designer problem. <UserControl.Resources> <local:InvestorsProvider x:Name="investorsProvider"></local:InvestorsProvider> </UserControl.Resources> Here is the error System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException [Async_ExceptionOccurred]Arguments: Debugging resource strings are unavailable. Often the key and arguments provide sufficient information to diagnose the problem.

  • An error occurred during local report processing.
    • The definition of the report 'Modules\Report1.rdlc' is invalid.
      • An unexpected error occurred in Report Processing.
        • Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.ReportViewer.ProcessingObjectModel, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

i try run on my machine its all work fine, but when i complier and run it on Window server 2008 get this error.

I read http://forums.asp.net/p/1513402/3613239.aspx I install the ReportViewer.exe but still cannot find the Microsoft.ReportViewer.ProcessingObjectModel.dll, however I got find it Microsoft.ReportViewer.ProcessingObjectModel in C:\Windows\assembly and is not a dll file. any suggestion?



Controllers AccountController IFormsAuthentication MVC 2 error vs2010


I finally got around to trying vs2010 and MVC 2 ... I'm glad I did not put them on a production computer.

My first compile (I have not had a chance to investigate because I just did this and I am too tired).

All I did was create a MVC 2 solution with MSTEST Unit Testing selected too.

I compiled it and get four unexpected errors (because I have heard ASP.NET MVC 2 "alpha" and vs2010 Beta 2 are supposed to be somewhat robust):

In both HomeController and AccountController:

"The type or namespace name "Controllers" does not exist ins the namespace "mvczzzzz001" occurs twice, once for HomeController.cs and once for AccountController.cs.

AccountControllerTest.cs has two errors:  can not find "AccountController" namespace and can not find "IFormsAuthentication" namespace.

With ASP.NET MVC v1.0 there are errors when one uses xUnit.net (version at time of ASP.NET MVC v1.0 RTM) as the test framework but not errors with MSTEST (I prefer xUnit.net to MSTEST).

I am just so surprised to find such errors in vs2010 + MVC 2 ....

is this happening to anyone else?????????????????

Thank you ~~ regards, Gerry (Lowry)

VS2010 Silverlight 4 - Getting "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" when loading a

In Visual Studio 2010 I'm trying to use the Blacklight Controls (http://blacklight.codeplex.com/releases/view/37652) in my own project (and actually included the Blacklight.Controls project in my solution so that I could debug what was going on) and... after making all the XAML changes needed to incorporate the Blacklight navigation menu with my stuff in the innermost grid... everything compiled ok when doing a Build.  When I run it there's a reference to a resource dictionary in the XAML that fails with the object reference error above.  The XAML is as follows:       <UserControl.Resources>       <controls:ResourceDictionaryManager x:Key="ResourceDictionaryManager">       <controls:ResourceDictionaryManager.ResourceDictionaries>       <controls:ResourceDictionaryCollection>       <controls:ResourceDictionary Path="/Blacklight.Showcase;component/ResourceDictionaries/DavesGlossyControls.xaml">       <controls:ResourceDictionary.ResourceKeys>       <controls:ResourceKeyCollection>       <controls:ResourceKey ResourceName="GlossyBlackScrollViewer" />       </controls:ResourceKeyCollection>     &

VS2010: Switching tabs in wpf designer

Hi, I have a problem with the WPF designer in VS 2010. I have a WPF UserControl which contains a TabControl with several Tabs (TabItems).  It was always possible to switch the tabs in the designer to see the content of the individual tabs. However, suddenly this stops working. I can not switch the tabs anymore. [EDIT] Seems to be a known issues? https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/531868/wpf-editor-tabcontrol-issues Workaround does not work for me (or I do not understand it correctly)...

Error previewing images in the designer

Hi, I'm an absolute beginner with WPF and tried to play around with some of the examples I found.   Here is the problem: I want to create an Image control as a child of the default Grid created by the designer and set its Source property in Xaml.   Here is my Xaml: <Window x:Class="WpfApplication1.Window1" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" Title="Window1" Height="300" Width="300"> <Grid> <Image Source="test.png"></Image> </Grid> </Window>     The image file exists in the project folder but the designer immediately gives me the following error:   Error 1 The file test.png is not part of the project or its 'Build Action' property is not set to 'Resource'. D:\CSharp\Test\WpfApplication1\Window1.xaml 6 16 WpfApplication1   When I add the file to the project and set its Build Action to Resource the image is displayed at runtime. The problem is the designer still insists on the above mentioned error and does not display anything except for the information:   Problem Loading   The document contains errors that must be fixed before the designer can be loaded. Reload the designer after you have fixed the errors. Reload the designer   What am I doing wrong?   (I am using Visual C# 2008 Expre

WPF+ VS2010: Design mode error "The URI prefix is not recognized"?

our application uses VS2008 and WPF. To apply the styles in the design mode, we have used the "BlendMergedDictionary" class (see the following link) http://stackoverflow.com/questions/995101/how-do-i-get-wysiwyg-design-in-blend-vs-without-merged-resourcedictionary-in-ever It works very well in VS2008 IDE.

why can't i run silverlight w/ wcf in iis but VS2010 built-in ASP.Net development server?

 Both VS200 and IIS are in my local machine. Suppose they have the same permission. I create a silverlight4 w/ wcf ria service project. The project runs well in VS2010 built-in ASP.Net development server. It doesn't work well after i publish it to IIS. I only can see its static content but not the .svc. i try to browse the .svc, it always show HTTP 500 error. I doubt if i do not open the asp.net runtime setting sth in IIS? Thanks!

Silverlight gives the error "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

Hello, I'm new to SharePoint 2010.  I have an SP2010 environment up and running.  When I click on a link that activates Silverlight, I get an error that reads "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage".  The Server is on a different domain. When I use remote desktop to access the server, I can open up the same link using IE and I can see the content no problem. An example would be from the calendar page.  If I choose a date and select 'add', the browser fades and I see a 'loading' screen.  Then the next screen I get the error.  If I follow the same process on the server using remote desktop, everything works. What could the problem be?

Error creating Read Item or Read List operation in Sharepoint Designer 2010

In terms of high-level requirements, I need to pull in lists from a couple of different web apps.  To do this, I’m using SPD 2010 to create an External Content Type for the list of interest.  I’m able to create a SOAP Service or WCF Service connection just fine.  However, when I try to create the external content type and create a Read Item Operation on one of the GetList or any other Get* (or other Update methods for that matter) methods, I get the following error:"The method that your operation is based on has parameters with complex types that do not have default parameterless constructor.  This kind of data source methods cannot be used in Business Data Catalog."I tried defining an operation on the “AddAttachment” method, and that worked just fine.  I also tried providing default values to the listName and viewName parameters when creating the SOAP Service connection, but still get the error.  Same issue with a WCF Service connection as well. Does anyone know if this is a 2010 issue, or am I approaching this requirement incorrectly?  What are other approaches for connecting to lists that reside in a different web app than yours? 

Silverlight enabled web service security error

I tried to create a SL enabled Web Service by following the example from the Microsoft link: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc197940(VS.95).aspx When I got to step 6 to test the web service that I created (View in Browser), I got the following error:  Security settings for this service require 'Anonymous' Authentication but it is not enabled for the IIS application that hosts this service. My IIS is located on my local machine with Windows Integrated Authentication and Anonymous access unchecked. After checking the Anonoymous access checkbo, I still got the above error. I have read other post on the Internet that Silverlight uses BasicHttpbinding but the settings in the web.config file was created by Visual Studio 2010 (running .NET 4.0), so I didn't think I need to mess with it. The following is the section from the web.config: <system.serviceModel>   <behaviors>    <serviceBehaviors>     <behavior name="">      <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" />      <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false" />     </behavior>    </serviceBehaviors>   </behaviors>   <bindings>    <customBinding>     <binding name=

Error in SharePoint Designer when converting to XSL

While using SharePoint Designer, I attempt to convert a web part "list view"  to XSL and i get the error:  "The server returned a non-specific error when trying to get data from the data source.  Check the format and content of your query and try again.  If the problem persists, contact the server administrator."  Was able to convert this same web part a week ago, and now I am getting this error.  I have restarted all of the servers and still receive this error.  The only thing I can think of is that there might be an issue with having too much data in the list.  Any ideas?
