You need curly brackets around the value in the string

You sure you have the right xmlns for your local types?
I think your type needs to be publix
Your type needs to be public
I don't think Portable.xaml will do private reflection to find your types.

public still results in a crash
and I use that model: xmlns for other things and they work

Hi. Maybe the question is not quite in the right place, but does anyone know how to make OpenTK and AvaloniaUI be friends? Some links to tutorials or notes?
Maybe github projects?

The Selector system is also much more powerful than just TargetType property + id.

totally agree. Don't get me wrong.. I like it a lot! I'm just thinking in terms of adoption.


though as someone pointed out the other day, MS don't seem to treat compatibility between their XAML frameworks very seriously, so why should we? ;)

Lol. unfortunately, true. All the rest of us feel your pain...Silverlight...WPF...Xamarin...the pain continues to live on. I'm thinking though, if we can adopt WPF, perhaps, then there would be little need to turn to Xamarin. If ppl prefer the Xamarin formats, then let them use Xamarin. I'm thinking 'pure' migrations of WPF to Mac and Android.

Maybe we could add some properties for WPF compat that adapt to Avalonia’s API under the hood. Maybe issue a warning/notice at build (once we have build-time XAML support) for usages of those compat apis to help people port over?

@toytonics yes we really need documentation, but unfortunately I don't even have time to write code for avalonia right now, and am having terrible even keeping up with PRs
Trouble not terrible, sorry on mobile
I keep hoping to get more time but life keeps getting in the way
So we really need contributors for docs
