Comment on Design Time support in Windows 8 C# XAML by Mark http://markmacumber.net/2012/08/design-time-support-in-windows-8-c-xaml.html/comment-page-1#comment-3023 Mark Thu, 25 Apr 2013 22:45:26 +0000 http://markmacumber.net/?p=157#comment-3023 Debugging these things can be tough, do you know if you class you are using as your sample data is being constructed? If you put an exception in the constructor, does the design time view (within Visual Studio or Blend) show the exception?

Comment on Design Time support in Windows 8 C# XAML by Bryce http://markmacumber.net/2012/08/design-time-support-in-windows-8-c-xaml.html/comment-page-1#comment-3003 Bryce Thu, 25 Apr 2013 01:17:16 +0000 http://markmacumber.net/?p=157#comment-3003 Great post. I am currently trying to set it at the page level and not having much luck. Basically in the XML namespace declaration where we see our first DataContext being set I added the necessary d:DataContext below it but it seems to have no effect. I'll try moving it to the Grid instead but do you have any idea why? I got that idea from another blogger and it bugs me that I can't get it to work. Great post.

Great stuff Mark! Another way I found to work with design time data is to include a d:Source in the <CollectionViewSource tag in your page resources. For example: The trick appears to be to make sure to include a sample ObservableCollection of your data type that gets created during the instantiation of the class... -mike I was looking for information on the IsDesignTimeCreatable attribute and found your blog post.

But I haven't found any ebook or tutorial how to deal with this kind of application. I am new to Metro Style (as anyone) and I want to learn how to iterate with all those group's on the page of the application. How to change their look and how to use their instances in C# codes? Can you help me find some ebook or just the title of the book which covers my problem? I want to learn how to program with Grid App (XAML) in C#.
