I have recently rediscovered Document Outline in VS2008.
It was something that I relegated, in my head at least, to the world of web
However, I thought about a week ago – wouldn’t it be very handy if it showed me my complex xaml in a tree.
Lo and behold it did, andI could click on each node and go straight to the relevant DataTemplate
It was a nice and clean way to navigate the page, and dare I say it, easier than using Blend.
Obviously Blend has a lot of great features not in VS2008, but is a bit designer like for me sometimes
