Visual designer with a Tab as root element

Ribbon for WPF Forum

Posted 14 years ago by Nate Hekman

Rather than include the xaml for the ribbon tabs in the same xaml file as the Ribbon itself, we've given each Tab its own xaml file. This allows us to design individual tabs separately, and choose a collection of tabs programmatically at runtime.

Unfortunately the designer doesn't appear to work if the root element is a Tab. It gives this error:

Intentionally Left Blank
The document root element is not supported by the visual designer.

We've also thought of giving each Group its own xaml file, but that has the same problem.

Is there a way around this? Am I doing something wrong? Not sure if this is a bug report or a feature request... :-)

Hi Nate,

Sorry but I think that's a limitation of the Visual Studio designer and is nothing we have control over. You can create Tab classes this way and build their XAML however the visual designer won't be supported.
