In my project I am having a dockpanel with two panes inside. All views give me errors, still the project can be built...

Here the structure of my project:

Stepper

|_ Commands

|_ Models

|_ ViewModels

    |_ PaneHeaderControlViewModel.cs

    |_ PaneHeaderRulesViewModel.cs

|_ Views

    |_ PaneHeaderControlView.xaml

    |_ PaneHeaderRulesView.xaml

_ StepperDockpane.xaml

_ StepperDockpaneViewModel.cs

 

Here the content of StepperDockpane.xaml

Line 17 returns:

Error: XDG0008 The name "TableControl" does not exist in the namespace "clr-namespace:ArcGIS.Desktop.Editing;assembly=ArcGIS.Desktop.Editing".

 

I can clearly see in the Assembly Explorer of Visual Studio 2019 that ArcGIS.Desktop.Editing contains TableControl.

------------------------------------

On top of all this is every reference a la Style="{DynamicResource Esri_xxxx}" marked with a warning that the resource could not be resolved.

 

I am using Visual Studio version 16.11.1

.NET Framework version 4.8.03752

ArcGIS Pro SDK for .NET in version 2.8.0.29751

ArcGIS Pro SDK for .NET (Utilities) in version 2.8.0.29751

and the project has x64 as platform target.

 

Any help is appreciated.

You should be able to compile/build and run your project despite these error messages.  The messages are coming from the 'XAML Designer' and if you close all XAML windows and rebuild you shouldn't get any messages.  The problem's cause was this:

In 2.8 all Pro assemblies were switched from mixed (x86 and x64) to 64 bit only. Unfortunately the XAML designer loader cannot load x64 bit assemblies. Here is a knowledge base article to that regard: Error: Could not load file or assembly 'ArcGIS.Desktop.Framework, Culture=neutral' or one of its de...
Hopefully the upcoming release of Visual Studio 2022 will fix this issue.

Closing the XAML files and rebuilding the solution helped. The issue remaining is line 17 in the PaneHeaderControlView.xaml

Error: XDG0008 The name "TableControl" does not exist in the namespace "clr-namespace:ArcGIS.Desktop.Editing;assembly=ArcGIS.Desktop.Editing".

I can clearly see in the Assembly Explorer of Visual Studio 2019 that ArcGIS.Desktop.Editing contains TableControl.

Do you have a solution for that as well, @Wolf
