Hi

I have created a silverlight 2.0  project, and opened with expression blend 2.0 sp1  but
when I click through on the .xaml through Express Blend I do not have the majority of the common controls,
for instance I only have TextBox, no label, etc. I may need to add references, but have tried and no success in getting this to work. Any ideas ?

where did the label control go in blend

Thanks

Yes i do have the label control when opening a wpf application.

but when i open a silverlight app then some of the controls are going missing. why ?
The label control is (i think) a very standard control that you need in both win and web apps

so why is the label control not availble when you open a silverlight 2.0 application

thanks

at present there is no control called Label in Silverlight. So It doesnt exist in blend too. there is only textblock.
But Silverlighttoolkit has a control called Label, you can check it out here
