connection between VS8 and blend RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    I'm not sure if I have the setup wrong but... whenever I save my document in blend... VS C# doesn't update itself nor does it ask me to update with the latest changes...

    I remember that before, when I saved in blend, VS C# will ask me to update the document with the current changes... Anyone know how I can get it back to this state?

  • Howdy,

    It generally occurs if you have the same file open in both Blend and Visual Studio. So Window.xaml open in both, make some changes in Blend and then head to VS you should get the message. It also should occur when you add or remove projects and references to your solution. Blend doesnt always reload the solution correctly though so sometimes you will need to close the solution in Blend and reopen again.

  • Hi, thanks for the reply.

    I've pretty much restarted when I sense that something might not be in sync.
