Sketchflow ObjectDataSource class from separated assembly = runtime crash RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

      I'm creating a sample where I have two additional projects, and entities one and a viewmodels one, the view model sample I'm creating instantiate a simple list of persons (name, plus lastname).

      If I create an objectdatasource based on that class (from the separate assembly MyViewmodel), everything works pretty well on design mode, but if I try to run I get a hard crash.

       If I just move that class to the Screens project, everything works fine.

       Is that a known Sketchflow bug?

  • Not a known bug. Can you run the project with a debugger attached and post the stack trace?

  • Hi


    Details about the error I get, if you want I can send you the dummy sample, it's interesting to try, with a Viemodel inside the same project everything goes fine, with an external project get the bad crash (exactly the same code), more details about the error:

  • If you can send the sample project we would be happy to take a look at it.  first.last@microsoft.com using my name.

  • The answer to this problem was that the project had a chain of references like this:

    A -> B -> C -> D

    Where A is the main project that produces the XAP. The silverlight compiler doesn't pull in assemblies into the XAP file from that chain. So C and D were not getting included in the XAP. When silverlight tried to load types from C and D, it couldn't find them.

    The solution is to add project references from A to C and D, so they get included in the XAP file.

    Right click references in project A, pick add reference, project reference, select C and D.
