When i click on the float option in a dockable window and then move the window a error was occur.

Cannot find resource named '{DefaultAvalonDockImageStyle}'. Resource names are case sensitive.  Error at object 'System.Windows.Controls.Image' in markup file'AvalonDock;component/Resources/OverlayWindowStyle.xaml'.

With Version [v1.2] .Net 3.5 it works fine.


Thank you for your help!

Hi, seems I found the problem, could you confirm if you explicitly load a theme dictionary with a line like this:

<ResourceDictionary Source="/AvalonDock;component/themes/aero.normalcolor.xaml"/>

if so for the moment try to not load a theme different from generic one, I suppose the problem is related to the build process of AvalonDock for .NET 4 and 3.5,
