WPF UserControl, Error message

I have a UserControl project (CellControl) that is referenced by my TestProject. In the Test project I have placed a user control on the window.
I am trying to use the loaded event for the UserControl.
When I add the tag to the UserControl header I get an error message.
See the attached images.

The only thing that looks a little askew is that your class name and your namespace name are the same. Up top you have
<UserControl x:Class="CellControl.CellControl"

Open in new window

Some tools get confused by that.

"Why" you are wondering "would this only be an issue when I have the Loaded event". Good queston. My guess is that the xaml parser didn't care that much about what your class name was until it needed to go locate your Loaded event in your class.


Open in new window

now requires finding "UserControl_Loaded" in CellControl.CellControl. It wouldn't be the first time a tool got discombobulated over a class in a namespace with the same name.

If you haven't already found a better answer, you might try giving your class a different name than your namespace.
