(Beginner) MainPage.xaml cannot be edited in the Design view

Postby Rourke » Mon Jun 06, 2016 7:57 pm

Hello, today I have downloaded C#/XAML for HTML5 after many years as a WPF & Silverlight developer. Basic question please: when I open the Calculator or Showcase project in VS2012, the designer pane just shows the error "MainPage.xaml cannot be edited in the Design view". I understand from browsing these forums that this should preview the page, even if you can't use the toolbox. One answer suggests that the WPF designer is being invoked by mistake.

Any idea how to diagnose or resolve this?

Hello,

Welcome to the forums.

Does this issue happen also when you open the editor by double-clicking the XAML file in the solution explorer?

Thanks,
Regards,

Yes it does. For what it's worth, I've just installed C#/XAML on a second machine running VS2013 and it works fine on that one.

Hi,

Can you please try with the new Beta 8.3? It is available from:
http://forums.cshtml5.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=5492

If it still doesn't work, can you please right-click a XAML file in the Solution Explorer, and click "Open with...", then please send us a screenshot of the window that appears when you do so.

Thanks a lot.
Regards
