How to design with Expression Blend ?

Sep 18, 2009 at 8:18 AM

Hi everybody !

First, I want to thank you for this great library !!!

 

I am trying to customise the style of the tabItem (document and dockable) with Expression Blend 3. But when I click to "Edit a copy..." of the DocumentTabItem in the demo application, Expression Blend crashes.

After few investigation, I think that expression blend tries to place a DocumentTabItem into a System.Windows.Controls.Panel (I'm really not sure of how blend works...) and because of AvalonDock exceptions that's not possible.

So I can't modify the style with Blend. I success modify the style directly in XAML (changing some color, ...) but my designer really prefers using Expression Blend ;-).

 

Did somebody have bypass this limitation or have an idea of how I can use blend to customise Avalon Dock ?

 

Thanks !
