“Fixing” the WPF Designer

If you use WPF on a regular basis, then I can take a good guess as the esteem in which you hold the designer. While it has it’s place, hard code WPF devs using XAML directly. It’s much each to get the result that you’re looking for quickly. The problem I’ve always had is that when you open a WPF file, even when you have disabled the design portion, there is still a significant time lag.

Thanks to Fabrice Marguerie who wrote this blog post which describes how to eliminate that annoying delay.

It’s nice to have less friction between me and my XAML. :)
