C1ComboBox bug?

October 23, 2008

I built the chart example from the quickstart guide, but I can’t seem to change my combo box selection with the mouse (I can select it with auto-complete, though).  When I swapped in the MS combo box it seems to work fine.  Here’s the chart in action:


Silverlight 2 Combo Box binding sublety!

October 9, 2008

It is vital to bind the ItemsSource before Binding to the SelectedItem!!! Wow, that’s a tough one

This works:

<ComboBox ItemsSource=”{Binding AllCurrencyStrings}” SelectedItem=”{Binding Path=Currency, Mode=TwoWay, Converter={StaticResource ConverterEnumToString}}”/>

this does NOT work:

<ComboBox SelectedItem=”{Binding Path=Currency, Mode=TwoWay, Converter={StaticResource ConverterEnumToString}}” ItemsSource=”{Binding AllCurrencyStrings}” />

I hope someone finds this helpful

XAML PowerTools error revisited

October 7, 2008

Even after a rebuild, I’m getting the following error when trying to generate xaml from a class in an RC0 SilverLight project. 


An intermittent fix seems to be to add a WPF project, and generate xaml from one of those classes – but now I’m stuck (the workaround doesn’t work).  

Does anyone know if these add-ins are easy to debug? Karl did publish the source.  At any rate, any feedback is welcome.
