VS 2008 SP1 – post installation issues – not recommend to install- WPF

One of my teammate mail share regarding VS 2008 Sp1 Post installation issues. – Recommend not to update unless there is a specific need.

‘I have recently installed SP1 on VS 2008 and started having problems with debugging. Not all break points get hit, step over acts similar to F5 and a few other issues. Installing the hotfix available at http://archive.msdn.microsoft.com/KB957912/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=1796 resolved the issues.

Yet another problem after I installed sp1.

Opening XAML files sometimes crashes VS 2008. For the xaml crashing problem, I am trying out the suggestion from here… http://blog.palehorse.net/2009/04/28/how-i-fixed-visual-studio-crashing-when-opening-xaml-wpf-files/

5 Essential WPF debugging tools

1) How can I trace/debug triggers? I know this is painful job if you miss something..

2) How to debug binding?
Xaml Include: xmlns:diag=”clr-namespace:System.Diagnostics;assembly=WindowsBase”
Include it in the element where binding happens- diag:PresentationTraceSources.TraceLevel=High
Example: I’ve added tracesources to Command Binding of the MenuItem

3) How can I debug application?
Use –http://joshsmithonwpf.wordpress.com/mole/

4) How can I sneak into Xaml at runtime? as like IE Dev tool bar for web developers.

5) How can visualize WPF resource? as like CSS resource checking with firebox or devtool bar in web programming?

MS Expression Blend, Studio, Design, Web and WPF/E are out!

WPF/E” is the Microsoft solution for delivering rich, cross-platform, interactive experiences including animation, graphics, audio, and video for the Web and beyond. Utilizing a subset of XAML-based Windows Presentation Foundation technology,
“WPF/E” will enable the creation of content and applications that run within multiple browsers and operating systems (Windows and Macintosh) using Web standards for programmability. Consistent with Web architecture, the XAML markup is programmable using JavaScript and works well with ASP.NET AJAX. Broadly available for customers in the first half of 2007, “WPF/E” experiences will require a lightweight browser plug-in made freely available by Microsoft.
Microsoft has released the new CTPs of Expression Blend (formerly Interactive Designer), and Expression Design (formerly Graphic Designer).
Few samples, but need to install runtime 😉 yes, for web application you need to runtime ;(
