Replace a silverlight layout.toolkit causes designer to throw exception.

HI,

I have a control using silverlight layout.toolkit. I would like to modify the source code. So I replaced the assembly System.Windows.Controls.Layout.Toolkit with my own assembly name
System.Windows.Controls.Layout.Toolkit_me.
However after replacement, the compiler is ok with it. BUt the XAML couldn't be loaded up in the designer. It gives error error

Error      1       [Line: 0 Position: 0]      C:\......\ControlGUI\AcessListsPage.xaml      1      1      ControlGUI

and the exception the designer throw is

System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException
Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.

Basically I think it couldn't load the toolkit.layout control properly.
Any help is really appreciated.
Thanks.

Never mind. I got it.
You need to delete all the temporary data and references. Also make sure all your projects use the same replaced assembly.
Thanks.

After I delete all controls except the layout.toolkit Accordion control in the grid,
it gives an error saying

[Control_TargetTypeMismatch]


THe grid is really simple
<Grid>
        <layoutToolkit:Accordion Name="acc" >
        </layoutToolkit:Accordion>
    </Grid>

Thanks.
