Two issues with R# 8 and Windows 8.1 projects.

I'm experiencing these two issues when editing Windows 8.1 projects in VS2013 Preview with R# 8.0.1 EAP:

RowDefinition/ColumnDefinition value Auto is marked as invalid:

And the other bug, R# is marking as error regular string usages from ResourceLoader when there more than one app localization:
In my opnion this is completely valid usage and it should not be marked as error, not even warning.

Environment - Windows 8.1 Pro x64 Preview, VS2013 Pro Preview, R# 8.0.1000.1526

One more feature request/fix, it would be great if R# enabled navigation "Got to definition" for default system XAML styles in Windows 8.1 projects. These styles are commonly used for instance in default generated projects.
Typical such style:

<Button Foreground="{StaticResource ApplicationHeaderForegroundThemeBrush}" Style="{StaticResource TextBlockButtonStyle}"/>

It's not possible to navigate to the source using Ctrl+click. It's possible to navigate to the source of TextBlockButtonStyle when pressing F12, this goes to the file generic.xaml in folder
C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\Include\winrt\xaml\design
F12 is not working on ApplicationHeaderForegroundThemeBrush, even though it's located in the same file as well.


Hello Martin,

Are you able to reproduce the issues in a sample solution? Or it happens in one specific solution only?



It happens in any VS2013/Windows 8.1 soution I open, here's an example:
open WebViewFlipTest/MainPage.xaml to see the issue with RowDefinition, or WebViewFlipTest/MainPage.xaml.cs to see the issue wit ResourceLoader.


Hello Martin,

Thanks a lot for the sample. I filled a new ticket to YouTrack - about ambiguous reference error.

Unfortunately, I was not able to reproduce the "Cannot resolve symbol Auto" issue in the sample solution

So, could you please specify Help | About MS Visual Studio | Copy Info?

Regarding your suggestion: a new feature request in YouTrack - You are welcome to comment and vote for it.


here's my Visual Studio info file. I hope it helps.


I don't see any resolution to this problem.  I am having the same issue still in Resharper 9.  You can recreate it by creating a new Blank App (Universal Apps) project under Visual C# > Store Apps > Universal Apps.

At first the problem is not there.  Resharper know about the Auto symbol.  You must close Visual Studio and re-open the project.  Then you will see the problem.

Please fix this.
