I am experiencing a strange problem with visual studio or Silverlight.
Any changes I put in my xaml do not show up.
I have wipped the page clean of any xaml code to see if that would do anything at all. And it does not. When running the project everything is still there.
I am not sure what is going on. It was working just fine until an hour ago. Changes were reflected as they should be.
The silverlight and web projects are in the same solution, I used the business app template when I created it a month ago. It has been working fine for the last month.
I tried clearing the solution and rebuilding it. I tried restarting my PC after clearing the solution; I tried deleting the xap file from my web project.
I don’t appear to be able to add any code anymore.
Please help, I am completely lost.
similar to what robcube said:
some people use a 'version' string that you manually update (and republish the hosting page). other people use a random guid or current datetime string. however, if you use the latter, the xap file will be downloaded by each client every time they visit the page - not good if your project is big.
