Other Notes on my VSTO-WPF-WCF session at the ODC:
· I demoed Charles Petzold’s XAML Cruncher tool. You can download it off his website at: http://www.charlespetzold.com/wpf/XamlCruncher/XamlCruncher.application
use the following XAML as your Startup document (XAML / Save as Startup document):
<Page xmlns=”http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation” xmlns:sys=”clr-namespace:System;assembly=mscorlib” xmlns:x=”http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml” >
<Rectangle Fill=”DodgerBlue” Width=”80″ Height=”21″/>
