Integrating a WPFToolkit fix with Actipro datagrid

WPF Studio, Themes, and Shared Library for WPF Forum

Environment: Windows XP (32-bit)

I have run into a known issue with the WPFToolkit DataGrid, with a working solution here:

I have tested this solution and verified it works.

I then tried to replace the WPFToolkit.dll in my solution, but I get back a 'The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference.' exception from the ActiproSoftware.DataGrid.Contrib.Wpf351 assembly (as expected...but a guy can hope).

I understand that putting fixes into the WPFToolkit is likely outside the scope of your support, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask...

Is there any chance you can build this fix into your next release? Or maybe tell me how I can compile my own WPFToolkit assembly to work with your DataGrid contrib?

Hi Joshua,

Actually the Actipro DataGrid.Contrib assembly is open-source as well. You can download the source from and update it to target your version of the WPF Toolkit.

The only other alternative would be to ensure that the assembly name is identical to the one referenced by our assembly ("WPFToolkit, Version=3.5.40128.1, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"). You can also map one version to another using an app.config, but that gets messy.

Excellent, I will grab the source and build my own.

Thanks for the quick response.
The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
