I have been trying to test the new WPF RibbonMenu and VS 2010 keeps crashing and reloading randomly....
To Test: I created a NEW Forms Project... added a new WPF UserControl then placed a RibbonMenu control inside the User Control... and the UC in an ElementHost on the Form.
I then try to add objects to the Ribbon Menu... Application Menu. QuickAccessToolBar, Buttons Tabs etc... doesn't matter what order but it as soon as there are a couple of objects added VS2010 starts to crash randomly... I might be looking at an item in
IE when it crashes.... All extremely frustrating.... (recreated several times now)
One consistent thing I have noticed is that if I create a RibbonTab it shows in the UserControls Designer, it also shows in the Forms designer... BUT when I run the app there is no tabs... just the Groups and Buttons I placed in the first tab.
I originally tried to create the shell of the project in Expressions Blend4 but had to dump that and recreate in VS 2010 as there were too many issues. (Would be great if that worked as MS says, as ExpBlend is great for the interface!)
Has anyone else had this issue?
I have added the last few event viewer crashes as well as my system info and the XAML code for the Ribbon Control. I hope this helps.
