So, I wanted to rename a window in a WPF application - a prototype I’m working on.
First, I rename the code in the .cs code-behind file. Then, I change the Class attribute on the root element of the xaml file.
Cool, thinks I. A quick compile, no errors, everything looks good.
But, when the application is run … I got an error dialog saying “There is no source code available for the current location”:
Eh? I thought the technology was called WPF, not WTF!
The exception dialog that followed wasn’t much help either: “Cannot locate resource window1.xaml”:
But, thought I - I’ve already changed all the references to window1.xaml … haven’t I?
After some searching with Google and pulling of hair, I found the culprit - in my
The StartupUri setting that needed to be updated to the new name of my form.
One Problem solved, a thousand more to go.
