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
