Important notes on Silverlight

Design-time limitations

Unfortunately, the markup extensions were not fully ported to Silverlight. There are two major issues that limit our design:
  • No constructor syntax available
  • Theoretically no design time support!
The first issue has to be accepted as is. But the second one can be partially circumvented using the a modified base class of the project XAML Markup Extensions. Refer to this project for more information how we did this ;-). Of course, there is still a limitation: The workaround only works with target properties of type String and Object. Nevertheless, please vote on this site for full design time support under Silverlight.
