ExtToolkit 1.6 not working in VS2008?

Apr 16, 2012 at 6:34 PM

I tried updating an existing VS2008 project that uses ExtToolkit1.4 to 1.6, but now it no longer compiles.  I get this:

NewSubstanceDialog.xaml(40,18): error MC3074: The tag 'WatermarkTextBox' does not exist in XML namespace 'clr-namespace:Microsoft.Windows.Controls;assembly=WPFToolkit.Extended'. Line 40 Position 18.

Is this dll still usable in VS2008?

What was changed to break this?

Thanks.

The version 1.6 should be usable in VS2008.  However, the namespace of the project is no longer "Microsoft.Windows.Controls" but "Xceed.Wpf.Toolkit".

Thanks, Nebuleux, that did the trick.

I wonder why Intellisense didn't show me that (when editing the Xaml, i entered "extToolkit:" and was expecting to see what classes were in the assembly, but it showed me NOTHING.

Was the name change shown on this website anywhere?
