    With the new Silverlight 5 RC released I was trying to run my developed Silverlight 4 application with Silverlight 5 RC, but unfortunately I could not run it and this gave me lot of exceptions. Note: My application with Tree View is working perfectly on the machines where  Silverlight 4 is installed, but gives exceptions on Silverlight 5 RC. When I debugged it and found that there is some problem when I am trying to add a child to the created root.

    Below is the code snippet for my process of adding child to a root item

                    RadTreeViewItem headerItem = new RadTreeViewItem();
                    headerItem.Style = (Style)Application.Current.Resources["TreeViewRootStyle"];
                    headerItem.Header = root.ItemName;
                    if (root.IconCode != null)
                        imgSrc.Source = new BitmapImage(new Uri(root.IconCode, UriKind.Relative));
                        headerItem.DefaultImageSrc = imgSrc.Source;
                    foreach (NavigationItemLink item in root.ChildItems)
                        RadTreeViewItem childItem = new RadTreeViewItem();
                        if (item.IconCode != null)
                            imgSrc.Source = new BitmapImage(new Uri(item.IconCode, UriKind.Relative));
                            childItem.DefaultImageSrc = imgSrc.Source;
                        childItem.Style = (Style)Application.Current.Resources["TreeViewNodeStyle"];
                        childItem.Header = item.ItemName;
                        childItem.Tag = item.Delegate;

    Exception Details:

    Exception Raised at the line headerItem.Items.Add(childItem);

    {System.Exception: Exception: Value cannot be null.
    Parameter name: element ---> System.ArgumentNullException: Value cannot be null.

    Please suggest a solution for the above problem.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Hello Syed Asif,

    There are certain issues we're having against the publicly available SL5 RC version. These issues are now resolved thanks to our close cooperation with Microsoft. However, since there isn't a more recent official version rather than SL5 RC, we cannot officially announce anything till the SL5 RTM is out.
    Thank you for your understanding.

    All the best,
