    I´m working on an app with the following architecture, I´m using CSLA .NET 4, BXF for plumbing to MVVM and WPF.

    Files code follow:

    <UserControl x:Class="MyAppDesktopWPF.TreeviewView"       
            d:DesignHeight="300" d:DesignWidth="400"


    CollectionViewSource x:Key="TreeAreaDS" Source="{Binding
    Source={StaticResource TrashViewModel},

    HierarchicalDataTemplate x:Key="ToolsDataTemplate"ItemsSource="{Binding Tools}" >
                <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=Name}" FontWeight="Bold"/>

            <HierarchicalDataTemplate x:Key="SegmentsDataTemplate"
    ItemsSource="{Binding Segments}" ItemTemplate="{StaticResource ToolsDataTemplate}" >
                <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=Name}" FontWeight="Bold"/>

            <HierarchicalDataTemplate  x:Key="SectionsDataTemplate" 
    ItemsSource="{Binding Sections}" ItemTemplate="{StaticResource
                <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=Name}"


    <Telerik:RadTreeView ItemsSource="{Binding Source={StaticResource
    TreeAreaDS}}" ItemTemplate="{StaticResource SectionsDataTemplate}"
    Name="PlanTreeView" Height="250" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="3"
    VerticalAlignment="Center" Width="150" />

    public class TrashViewModel : ViewModel<MyAppBO.MyClass>
            public TrashViewModel()
                Bxf.Shell.Instance.ShowStatus(new Bxf.Status { Text =
    "Getting Plan", IsBusy = true });
                ManageObjectLifetime = true;
                // cascade model changed events through VM to View
                Model.PropertyChanged += (o, e) =>

            public TrashViewModel(MyClass classInstance)
                Bxf.Shell.Instance.ShowStatus(new Bxf.Status { Text =
    "Getting Plan", IsBusy = true });
                ManageObjectLifetime = true;
                Model = classInstance;

                // cascade model changed events through VM to View<br>
                Model.PropertyChanged += (o, e) =>

    With this version of the code I get an exception that says:
    "'Provide value on 'System.Windows.Markup.StaticResourceHolder' threw an exception.' Line number '108' and line position '50'."
    However if I change the code for the collectionviewsource to:
      <CollectionViewSource x:Key="TreeAreaDS"

    I get this:
    Locating source for 'c:\Builds\WPF_Scrum\Release_WPF_2010_Q2_SP2\Sources\Development\Core\Controls\Animation\AnimationManager.cs'. Checksum: MD5 {d5 92 43 67 7f ad 5a 42 93 7e b9 53 ee b2 ef 99}
    The file 'c:\Builds\WPF_Scrum\Release_WPF_2010_Q2_SP2\Sources\Development\Core\Controls\Animation\AnimationManager.cs' does not exist.
    Looking in script documents for 'c:\Builds\WPF_Scrum\Release_WPF_2010_Q2_SP2\Sources\Development\Core\Controls\Animation\AnimationManager.cs'...
    Looking in the projects for 'c:\Builds\WPF_Scrum\Release_WPF_2010_Q2_SP2\Sources\Development\Core\Controls\Animation\AnimationManager.cs'.
    The file was not found in a project.
    Looking in directory 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\crt\src\'...
    Looking in directory 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\atlmfc\src\mfc\'...
    Looking in directory 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\atlmfc\src\atl\'...
    Looking in directory 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\atlmfc\include\'...
    The debug source files settings for the active solution indicate that the debugger will not ask the user to find the file: c:\Builds\WPF_Scrum\Release_WPF_2010_Q2_SP2\Sources\Development\Core\Controls\Animation\AnimationManager.cs.
    The debugger could not locate the source file 'c:\Builds\WPF_Scrum\Release_WPF_2010_Q2_SP2\Sources\Development\Core\Controls\Animation\AnimationManager.cs'.

    Any ideas?
    I could try setting up a demo project, but I´d expose too much of the BL of the app and my employer wouldn´t like that..
