Hello,

 

I am developing a project for Microsoft Office 2007, using Visual Studio Tools for Office. I am making some WPF UserControls that I am displaying in the application.

When I do ShowDialog(), the entire application freezes. I tried seeking help on the Microsoft forums, but recently I discovered that this happens only when I use control from the ActiPro dlls.

 

Here are more details regarding the problem on the MSDN forum: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vsto/thread/815a36ef-68f1-4095-ad17-0630d138c17f .

Can you tell me what is the cause of the problem?

 

Best regards,

Silviu.

Hi Silviu,

Unfortunately it would be impossible to tell without a sample project to debug, but our Editors for WPF controls do not do anything out of the ordinary for a WPF control. We don't do any threading and there only call one Win32 API method (GetCaretBlinkTime).

If you can please put together a small sample project that reproduces your issue and email it over then we can take a closer look. Be sure to remove any executables or change the extension of the zip file to ensure it gets past our email filters.

Hi Silviu,

Thank you for the sample, but I was unable to reproduce the issue you describe. Are you sure you are using our latest mainteance release? There was an issue in WPF 2011.2 build 0550 that may cause what you describe, but that was fixed in build 0551.

The latest build of this product (v2019.1 build 0681) was released 18 days ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
