The Extended WPF Toolkit is generally excellent, but breaking changes (e.g. the namespace change) made without warning are unpleasant, and the datagrid doesn't seem to handle validation correctly AND is crippled in several important ways (what, you want to ADD rows?)

this is a great source for extended wpf controls. Also my request to add carousel controls.

This is a fantastic set of code, and I love the fact it's available for free. I make good use of the watermark text box, the busy indicator & the data grid. Great stuff!

I love Extended WPF Toolkit, it's a life saver. I wish I could buy the paid version but as a single developer, I cannot. Anyway, many thanks...

The Nuget packaged should not break the build but it does. After changing the namespaces, getting 'Object reference not set to an instance of an object' all over the place. Looked to solve the problems. Has something to do with custom styling. Had to revert to the last non XCeed version to keep the app building and running. Maybe I'll try the new version when I have some more time.

Extended WPF Toolkit has some essential controls that were left out of WPF. Thank you Xceed for making them!
