    There was a previous post that stated there would be design time support for XAML files in Visual Studio 2008 for Telerik Silverlight Controls. The designer in Expression Blend can display them even though there does not appear to be any extended proeprties for configuration.

    Please advise whether there are any fixes or work-arounds that can be used or whether there is an alternative product for editing these files?

    Hello Paul,

    Microsoft removed Visual Studio 2008 XAML designer for Silverlight 3 projects completely.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
