    Quite awhile back I posted a change request on the feedback portal to get support for the RadWizard in the Document Outline window of Visual Studio. Unfortunately, I've been informed that even after nearly two years it's still not on their plans due to low demand.

    The Document Outline is an amazing feature with Visual Studio that allows you to quickly see the hierarchy of your WPF XAML. This is invaluable when you have complex layout -- which you probably have unless you're dealing with trivial solutions. Most controls enumerate all their children. The RadWizard swallows it up and displays nothing (image added to illustrate the difference).

    I'd appreciate everyone reading this to take a look at the Document Outline feature if you're not already familiar with it, and once you do I hope you'll see why the RadWizard needs the support and then please go and upvote my feedback.

    Hello Anthony,

    We are currently researching this possibility. We will update this forum thread once we have more information on the matter.

    Thank you. It looks like it was a quick fix, because I got the notification that the request was marked as completed. I'm looking forward to seeing it in an internal build.

    I downloaded 2017.2.614.45 from the control panel. There's no corresponding VSExtensions update, so I applied the library changes to my solution manually. There was no change with the wizard in the Document Outline. Perhaps there needs to be a corresponding VSExtensions update.

    Hello Anthony,

    You need the 2017_2_627 hotfix. Please check the Using the Hotfix (DLLs Only) help article which demonstrates how to use the latest internal build.

    I am sending you a sample project. You can check it and let me know if it helps.

    Yoan,

    I was on vacation when you sent your message and I've been busy catching up. I finally had a chance to apply the hotfix. It works great as illustrated in the attached screen clip.
