C# Question

The name 'DockingManager" does not exist in namespace

In a C# WPF project, I added Xceed.Wpf.AvalonDock into References. In xaml file, I have

<xcad:DockingManager x:Name="DockMangager" Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="1">

Could someone help? Thank you!


This is a security problem of the dll when downloaded from the internet.

  • Go to the Xceed.Wpf.AvalonDock.dll file in Windows explorer
  • Open "Properties"
  • On the bottom of the dialog there is a warning under "Security"
  • Click on "Unblock"
  • Rebuild the project
