SilverLight DevCamp Nugget #2

Here are several gotchas I learned about at SilverLight DevCamp DC. You might not even understand what some of these are talking about, but hopefully by the end of this series you will.

  • Keyboard input doesn’t work right for fullscreen mode
  • Blend’s Media encoding fails sometimes
  • You need to deploy debug (.pdb) files in order for Firefox to work
  • You need to save the root element passed during the onload event so you can do a find controls with it later
  • Validation and intellisense don’t work right in xaml files
  • Attached properties don’t show-up in intellisense
  • Do not start animations in the constructor
  • No design time support for UserControls in Blend
