Development requirements

Designer issues

If you have issues using the designer inside of Visual Studio you can try the following things:

  • Clear %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\[VERSION]\Designer\ShadowCache or %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\WDExpress\[VERSION]\Designer\ShadowCache where [VERSION] has to be changed according to your version of Visual Studio
  • Clear the .vs folder in your development folder

If none of that helps feel free to report an issue here.

Formatting settings that have to be used

  • For general formatting you have to use editorconfig (should work out of the box with Visual Studio 2019)
  • XAML
    • Position each attribute on a separate line
    • Position first attribute on same line as start tag
