I just installed "Simple MVVM Toolkit v188.8.131.52" and using Visual Studio 2012 I created a SimpleMvvmWpf project. In order to learn how the toolkit works (after reading all the docs except admittedly only quickly skimming the "Programming
Reference"), I started exploring. But say I'm in CustomerViewModel.cs:
public class CustomerViewModel : ViewModelDetailBase<CustomerViewModel, Customer>
I want to be able to highlight ViewModelDetailBase and hit F12 to view its source code. But then I only see metadata not the actual source code.
The documentation Introduction says:
The helper classes are located in the SimpleMvvmToolkit assembly, which you can reference from your project, or you can if you wish include the SimpleMvvmToolkit project in your Visual Studio solution, which is probably a good idea when you are
getting to know the framework.
I extracted C:\Program Files (x86)\SimpleMvvmToolkit_2012\Source\SimpleMvvm-Source.zip to my separate VS2012 projects folder. Using Solution Explorer, I then added via the "Add > Existing Project" command:
But that didn't seem to help? I tried building the solution but then get the following error:
Error 1 Cryptographic failure while signing assembly 'SimpleMvvm\Common\SimpleMvvmToolkit-Common\obj\Debug\SimpleMvvmToolkit-Common.dll' -- 'Error reading key file 'SimpleMvvm\Common\SimpleMvvmToolkit-Common\SimpleMvvm.snk' -- The system cannot
find the file specified. 'SimpleMvvm\Common\SimpleMvvmToolkit-Common\CSC SimpleMvvmToolkit-Common
So my question is, how can I browse (and eventually even step into while debugging) the SimpleMvvmToolkit source code from within a SimpleMvvm WPF project?
