Why is the WPF/XAML Designer in VS2010 unable to resolve my StaticResource references?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
 
I have a WPF 3.5 app that was rendering properly in both the VS2008 Designer and at runtime. Since upgrading to VS2010, the Designer is no longer able to resolve any of my StaticResource references. Everything still renders correctly at runtime.

Generated MainWindow.xaml crashes VS2010 when you open the designer

  

In my system which is running Windows 7 Enterprise X64 I have a problem viewing some XAML files. At least one of my project XAML files sometimes crashes VS2010 if I open it in the designer or try to view it with Internet Exlorer 8 or Windows Presentation Foundation host. It also happens if i try to display the MainWindow.xaml that is generated by VS 2010.

The contents of MainWindow.xaml are

<Window x:Class="WpfApplication1.MainWindow"
        xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
        xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
        Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525">
    <Grid>
       
    </Grid>
</Window>

 

If I open the debugger when IE8 crashes, the failing stack frame is iefdm2.dll!03992071()

I assume it is some sort installatioin snafu or something but I would hate to have to re-install everything.

Can anybody suggest what the issue might be?

Unable to view the XAML Designer -

  

Hi,

I really hope someone knows the answer to this.

I am currently unable to view any XAML/Designer windows in my VS2010 Ultimate. (64bit)

Steps to reproduce (well at least on my install)

1- Create New WPF Project/Solution

2- Double Click on the default MainWindow.xaml

3- Nothing happens!

I've been trying to figure this out for a few days and I am stumped.

I have uninstalled VS2010 and then reinstalled -

installed SP1 - tried the repair .NET 4 etc . . .

Any help on this would be very appreciated.

Thanks


how to quick navigate to the definition of StaticResource from VS2010 xmal designer

Is there a quick way to navigate to the definiton of a Resource when reading xmal in VS2010.  For example, i have a line in a xmal file.

<ListBox x:Name

Disable XAML Intellisense in Macro (VS2010 IDE)

  
I'm writing a few macros to insert XAML code I often use into the VS2010 XAML editor. This works OK, but Intellisense is interpreting the code as it's being inserted. This causes syntax errors. Here's an example of the inserted code: <Grid> <Grid.RowDefinitions> <RowDefinition></RowDefinition> </Grid.RowDefinitions> <Grid.ColumnDefinitions> <ColumnDefinition></ColumnDefinition> </Grid.ColumnDefinitions> </Grid> The inserted code is a bit more complex as it includes properties I commonly use, but this will help illustrate the problem.When the code is inserted, Intellisense completes the definitions. For example, after <Grid> is inserted, Intellisense adds a corresponding </Grid>, which makes the code syntatically incorrect.How can I automatically disable Intellisense before the code is inserted and enable it after (within the macro)? After the code is inserted, I'd like to automatically reformat it.Thanks!

VS2010 XAML namespace intellisense not working

  
When I type in a namespace in XAML, I'm not getting any intellisense. For example: xmlns:local="" In VS2008 I would get a long intellisense list here. In VS2010 I get nothing. I have tried this on 2 different computers. What am I missing?

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)... [/EDIT] Any ideas? Thanks in advance. Jus

Hosted Designer fails to load workflow xaml that has InArguments with default values (xaml saved by

  
I have hosted the designer in our app. Using the hosted designer, workflows are saved as xaml to a database. When an end user wishes to edit a workflow the xaml is downloaded to a file and loaded into the designer via the .xaml file. The user can also associate assemblies with the workflow and there is a mechanism which makes sure that these assemblies are loaded into the appdomain and available. The problem we are hitting occurs when the top level activity (Sequence) has InArgument with default value. I create a simple Sequence, add InArguments (type of Int32 and String)  and set some default values. I save the workflow xaml to the database and close down the designer. When I wish to edit the workflow and try to load I get the following errors Could not find member '{clr-namespace:}_e905.argument3'. Could not find member '{clr-namespace:}_e905.argument1'. suggesting that some assembly/namespace missing. Here is the xaml I try to load: <Activity mc:Ignorable="sap" x:Class="{x:Null}" this:_e905.argument3="99" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2009/xaml/activities" xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006" xmlns:mva="clr-namespace:Microsoft.VisualBasic.Activities;assembly=System.Activities" xmlns:s="clr-namespace:System;assembly=mscorl

Designer workflow + unable to edit task

  
I use the SPD to create a custom workflow which will assign to-do task to users. The workflow is attached to a list library in a subsite and users only have view-only permission to the subsite (users are added to the subsite directly, not inside any sharepoint group).  In order for users to complete the assigned task, I have broken the permission inheritance and change users to have contribute permission on the Task list.   The workflow would trigger as expected and a new task is created for the user. The user can see the "edit task" link in the task item but when clicked "edit task", an "access denied" error occurs.   Under further investigation, I notice access are granted for sharepoint group e.g. site visitors, site members on URL http://....../workflow/workflow_name/newtask.aspx , and only when I create the workflow under the site administrator account. If I create the workflow under an account which also has "Full Control" to the subsite, No access are granted to the workflow library at all.   What permission levels do I need to create workflows in designer really? Does it make a difference if the workflow is on a top-root site or subsite? Full control on the top-root site or subsite?   Thanks in advance.

Unable to debug Workflow in VS2010

  
I have a minimal sequential workflow created in Visual Studio 2010 which I cannot run in debug mode. I have created the workflow using the template in VS2010. When running the project in debug mode the breakpoint mark changes from full red circle to empty circle with exclamation mark. The tooltip message is: "The breakpoint will not currently be hit. No symbols have been loaded for this document" I am able to debug webparts deployed onto the same Sharepoint site using VS2010.

VS 2010 unable to edit or display xaml files.

  
Hi,

I am having a problem using the editor for xaml files in Visual Studio 2010.

I have used Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 for many years.  Over the last year or more I have been constructing and maintaining a Silverlight application, editing both the xaml code and using the design mode.  I am quite familiar with it and it worked fine.

However we recently installed several copies of Visual Studio 2010 as trial versions and since it seemed OK we converted to the full version.  However now I am having trouble viewing xaml files in the editor, in either the design mode or as text. 

Double clicking on a xaml file in the Solution Explorer, which should start the xaml editor, now does very little, leaving the main screen blank. The file seems to be open since it is listed in the list of open files in the 'Windows' drop down menu.  If I ask it to reload the file it says it is already open and do I want to close it before continuing.  But it is not accessible or visible.

Right clicking on a xaml file and selecting 'Open with..' shows the 'Automatic Editor Selector' is selected as default.  If I select 'Text Editor' I can at least see and edit the xaml code.  But I can not see the design mode.  If I select 'Windows Presentation Foundation Designer with encoding' from the 'Op

Unable to sort RSS feed in Web Part or SP Designer 2007

  
I have an RSS Moss 2007 webpart to display feeds from http://www.fujitsu.com/uk/news/pr/uk-news-pr-rss.rss but the feed is coming in reverse date order. In Sharepoint designer when I try to sort by pubDate (descending), the sort order is arbitrary and it appears that the feed is being limited in size with the latest post being some 3 years ago.

Any help would be appreciated.
