WPF and Silverlight Documentation

How can we improve the WPF and Silverlight documentation?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    • The example given for Full Text Grid Filtering for the C1DataGrid does not work

      When attempting to run it as given, I get this binding error in the Output window in Visual Studio:

      System.Windows.Data Error: 2 : Cannot find governing FrameworkElement or FrameworkContentElement for target element. BindingExpression:Path=C1Text; DataItem=null; target element is 'C1FullTextSearchBehavior' (HashCode=41883657); target property is 'Filter' (type 'String')

      Because of this, the binding can't update. Since the binding can't update, filtering never occurs.

      • Please provide more usage information and sample code. The documentation is almost useless because it never tells me how to use the code.

        Look at how Microsoft documents .NET. They provide substantial remarks informing us how to use the API. I never see this in any of your documentation so your controls are harder to use, and if they are harder to use... well, why am I using them?

        Please provide remarks for each API that help us understand how to use it, and please put sample code in the docs directly.

        This is true for all your documentation.
