  • Opt in features - unclear what some of them do

    • Hi Hani,
      this is a very useful sample. It didn't take long to enable them in our rehosted Designer.
      Some of the opt-in features are not yet documented on MSDN.
      For example:
      designerConfigService.AutoSplitEnabled = true;
      designerConfigService.NamespaceConversionEnabled = true;
      What do these features implement?
    • Hi Mike,
      AutoSpli​tEnabled = true is for enabling the auto-insert feature explained in the following link:
      Namespac​eConversionEnab​led = true is for enabling the conversion of WF 4 namespace formatting to WF 4.5 namespace formatting. If you open a WF 4.5 XAML, you will see "TextExpression.NamespacesForImplementation" tag that you don't see in WF 4 XAML files.
