Unable to view the XAML Designer -

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :JQuery
 

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

Designer does not remember my settings, for ex., I want to always load xaml into xaml (code) view, n

  

I am using VS 2010 Ultimate.  It is not remembering my setup when opening .xaml files.  It is very annonying.  I  am pretty sure VS remembers things like that.

I prefer to load my .xaml file to see the code only.  So I usually minimize the design tab.  However, I have to do this every time I open a .xaml file.

I am getting the feeling this setting is stored at the .sln level, which is even more annonying, it should be global setting for all VS sessions.

Any advice?


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

  
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.

How to create scrolling table for columns in a SharePoint Designer Data View

  

I have a fairly complex SharePoint Designer 2007 Data View they have added two more requirements.

1. Have the columns on the right side be able to scroll left to right as there is a large number of columns, while the first 3 columns on the left side stay locked in place.  This is only one list not two, and because of some other requirements I have it must remain to be just one list.

2. Then they also need to have scrolling up and down of the entire list with the headers locked in place.

The first requirement is more important than the second, but preferrably I need to do both.

I am new to XSL so not familar with the syntax. Is this something I can do on a custom Data View? Does anyone have any examples of how?

I have a drawing that show how it needs to look but I don't see an option here to upload a graphic.

So here is a link to my graphic example uploaded to my blog area: http://lindachapman.blogspot.com/  or just the image here: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aB01ue__NvQ/TGL42MOvrGI/AAAAAAAAAA4/c3xP4uCy4BU/s1600/Scrolling.png

I failed to mention that 3/4 of the columns are HTML Calculated fields wh

VS 2010 XAML Design View Load always fail with a Type Load Exception

  
Create a new WPF project in VS and change nothing. The Design View will fail to load with the error below. Error    1    Could not load type 'Microsoft.Expression.DesignModel.Core.ISharedInstanceBuilder' from assembly 'Microsoft.Expression.DesignModel, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'. Microsoft.Expression.DesignModel is an assembly from Expression Blend. I ever installed Blend 4 RC and uninstall and install Blend 4. I Reflector the assembly I have under Blend 4 bin folder. And cannot find a interface named ISharedInstanceBuilder. But the WPF project is a Template project without any changes. How it get related with Blend 4? And how to fix it? Thanks.  

Customer Activity Designer Problem - "Could not generate view for VisualBasicValue`1"

  
I'm reading Bruce Bukovics Pro WF4 book and in chapter 16 - Advanced Customer Activites, he details emulating a Sequence activity along with a custom designer. When I drop the custom activity into a new xaml activity, I'm getting all sorts of wierdness. The custom sequence activity has a condition property that determines whether to schedule each child activity contained within. Once I set a value in the ExpressionTextBox for the activity, Visual Studio starts showing in red "Could not generate view for VisualBasicValue`1" along with this error showing up in my error window: The activity 'VisualBasicValue<Boolean>' cannot be referenced by activity 'MySequence' because the latter is not in another activity's implementation.  An activity can only be referenced by the implementation of an activity which specifies that activity as a child or import.  Activity 'VisualBasicValue<Boolean>' is declared by activity 'MySequence'. Here is the source for the activity itself: using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Linq; using System.Text; using System.Activities; using System.ComponentModel; using System.Collections.ObjectModel; namespace ActivityLibrary { [Designer(typeof(ActivityLibrary.Design.MySequenceDesigner))] public sealed class MySequence : NativeActivity { [Browsable(false)] public Collection<Activity&

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 open design view

  
I have SSRS 2008(native), BIDS and VS  2008 (9.0.30729.1 SP) on Windows 7 Pro.I have a working report and today I cannot "View Designer" for my report.When I load the project, it automatically goes into rdl:code view.When I right click on the report, I see the option to view code or view designer,and select view designer, it produces a second copy of the rdl:code view.The rdl is good because: - I can build the project and the build succeeds. - I can run the rdl (right click, run) and it produces the preview of the report.Then, I started a new simple project, went through the wizard and still - no design view.This simple project also builds correctly and produces a preview report.I have checked this, and other forums but I find myself (sort of) alone in this quandary!So, how (and why) did I lose the designer view?Please help....Usman Suleman

Color list view showing in Designer but not in IE or FF

  
I've created some color-coded List views in Designer using a calculated column that renders an HTML tag. I then edited the tag with the "disable-output escaping" set to "yes". The color shows fine in Designer but never on the browser page. I've tried viewing this in IE and FF. Anyone know what the problem could be? Thanks.

Resync designer view with model/view state

  
Hi, In most cases, changes made to the model or view state pretty much immediately reflect in the designer UI, assuming there is a corresponding UI representation for the model item or view state.  What I'm doing is using the view state to establish links (in a Flowchart designer) between activity designers.  Normally this works fine.  But occasionally, an exception is thrown saying that a connection cannot be made between two points.   In the event of this exception, I can wrap the statement that throws the exception (in my case, EditingScope.Complete) and retry the logic, this time not specifying the connection points and letting the designer's routing algorithm comes up with its own path.   The problem I'm experience is when I wrap the call (EditingScope.Complete) in a try/catch block that throws the exception and re-do the connection logic, this time not specifying the view state (but still specifying the Next property of a FlowStep, or True/False property of a FlowDecision, etc using the ModelItem.SetValue method), visually a connection is not made between the activities.  But if I manually close the designer and reload it or use the bread crumb navigation to move away from the current designer and then return, the connections visually appear. I want to be able to programmatically refresh the UI based on the updated model / view st

Designer View control hierarchy

  
I have been trying to figure this out for quite a while today... You know the little control hierarchy tool at the bottom of the "Design" and "Code" view of the Designer file? It's gone for some reason. I tried reverting from a Project to a Website too, and still didn't fix the problem. I can see the hierarchy in code view, but not the design view. It's probably some kind of silly option but I couldn't find anything online about anyone else having this problem. Also, when I click on a control in the design view, and I go to the Code view, it just puts me at the top of the page rather than highlighting the control's code and bringing me to it automatically. This is very frustrating, lol.
