Error Message Reference for the WPF Designer

This section contains XAML compiler errors listed by error message. All XAML compiler errors have corresponding topics that explain why an error is generated, and in some cases, how to fix the error. To get Help on a particular error message, try one of the following:

  • Click the error in the Error List Window, and press F1.

  • In the Visual Studio Help, type the error number, such as XAML0101, in the Look for box in the Index.

  • In the Visual Studio Help, type the error number or the error message in the Search page.

  • In the Visual Studio Help, locate the error in the Contents list.


The dialog boxes and menu commands you see might differ from those described in Help depending on your active settings or edition. To change your settings, choose Import and Export Settings on the Tools menu. For more information, see Working with Settings.
