Thank you for the attached xaml. Unfortunately, I was unable to reproduce the exception that you described. I created a small project based on the code you provided and I had to comment out somethings, because I do not have the code behind. I am left with a pretty simple xaml, where one data bar is used and when I run the project - everything is rendered properly and no exception is thrown.
Could you please modify the project to reproduce the faulty behavior and send it back to us for investigation? Can you also specify the exact version you are using and whether it is the no-xaml variant. Thank you!
