Visual Studio 2008 crashes in XAML view on Demo

Aug 31, 2010 at 7:10 PM

Greetings,

Thank you for porting DatForm to WPF.  I have downloaded the source from this website today, and built it myself.

In the AllProgrammic.WPF.DataForm Solution, inside the Demo Project, if I right click on Window1.xaml and choose Open With... and select Source Code (Text) editor, my Visual Studio 2008 SP1 crashes.  It just actually disappears off the screen without any warning or notice.

I have subscribed to this thread, so if you are able to fix this issue, just post a reply to this discussion and I will download the latest source and try again.

Thanks,

Hugh

OK I played with it awhile, figured out a solution:

Right click the AllProgrammic.WPF.DataForm project and choose Add User Control.  Name it anything you want.

Visual Studio adds the necessary DLLs to the project to support Design View.

Delete the new User Control.

Now you can open the Source Code (Text) editor without crashing VS 2008 SP 1.
