Design time shell view with navigation regions

Nov 30, 2011 at 6:46 AM

Hi Everyone,

We're creating a business application in silverlight 5 and i'm trying to figure out if it's possible to have all the design time data flow back into the shell. At the moment we've connected up all the views to design time view models and they appear correctly. The only part i'm missing from blend is the ability to see all of our design time views on the main shell. I need this in order to provide some complex animation on the contents of the various regions.

I've had a look at the Jounce quickstart solution and specifically the SimpleNavigationWithRegion project. I've notice that this too doesn't have any design time data in Visual Studio for the ShellView.

What would be the best place to start looking in order to get the shell working with other design time views?
