Hi Stuart,

What about WPF support? Do you plan to make it up-and-running in a near future?



TwitterSearch has a working WPF sample - .NET 4.5 only because of PCL issues

See https://github.com/slodge/MvvmCross/tree/vnext/Sample%20-%20TwitterSearch/TwitterSearch.UI.Wpf

I've not implemented many WPF plugins - I don't have a need for them - but if users need them I am happy for them to contribute.

What else is needed?


Cirrious.MvvmCross.Wpf It doesn't compile ...

  • Doesn't know : using System.Windows.Interactivity;
  • The non-generic type System.Windows.TriggerAction cannot be used with type argument

Do I have to include something?


It compiles here.

System.Windows.Interactivity is something to do with Blend.

I'm not a WPF expert - maybe search StackOverflow for things like http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5755270/where-do-i-find-system-windows-interactivity-as-redistributable

I'm not going to spend too long on Blend problems - especially as Microsoft are retiring Blend....



I think the pre-build binaries include wpf - but chances are that you will want to get it building yourself


Have to install Blend SDK for .NET 4 (BlendWPFSDK_en.msi) and all is running perfect ...
