cant even get the test app working xaml parsing errors


I download the source for the test app, updated the SL toolkit reference and it compiles. However if I open Page.xaml it has parse errors on the textblock, then the button and finally the linklabel control.
When I just try to add a link label control to my own project it also breaks the xaml and I get the same parsing errors.
Anyone any ideas?

Did you check the online demo at http://www.silverlightshow.net/items/Silverlight-LinkLabel-control.aspx?

I just downloaded the project and it runs fine on my machine (yes, I know that doesn't help you a lot).
Could you paste the parsing error so I can look through it?
Also, what are your regional settings for Culture, UI Culture (or language browser settings)?

Please, give me more information so I can try to reproduce that and see where the error trips in.

Thank you,

ok worked it out, for the xaml to preview properly with a linklabel you have to include the silverlight toolkit controls dll in your silverlight project. I hadnt because the example project doesnt either. Its not needed to actually work but it is to preview in blend or VS
