Default BitmapEffect property for Border control

Please refer to the last line on P. 192 of the book. I cannot accomplish Step 7, because no BitmapEffect property shows for the Border element. What am I missing? Thanks.

Sorry, but I missed a reference at WPF basics Chapter 6 to the very same Ch 6 problem I'm having. I'm also using Visual Basic 2008 Express.

I just completed this one. i believe you all have the actual picture selected not the Box containing the pic.

Look at the attached pics. screen shots of mine. Remeber the book mentions to place a container for the picture, it that container you are selecting, Let me know if this helps!!

Ok well it seems we can't post picture so here is a direct link:

This pic is showing the border selected: www.ypaythem.com/borderselected.jpg

This one shows the appropriate drop down list. I rearranged the work area for better visual:

www.ypaythem.com/Shows_the_selected.jpg

Let me know if this helps! I think this section should have been appended to the end of the book. It is like adding another code language in the middle of trying to learn this one!

Please let me know if this helped you!

ThankX

The book states directly that you click border in the XAML code so I doubt people are actually sitting with the picture itself selected...

Anyway, I'm using the VS2010 Beta and sitting with the same problem. The intellisense works as expected but BitmapEffect is never available in the properties window. As with someone else though, double-clicking the DropShadowBitmapEffect text in the XAML code opens it's specific sub properties in the properties window, but still never showing BitmapEffect for the border control.

So it works, but I see myself missing out on many other effects I could be stumbling upon in the properties :(

It's actually still not working... it seems to not like the CreditCard.jpg resource. Someone mentioned case sensitivity to I changed the filename to lowercase and added it to the project again... no difference. I wonder if this is just due to me using the 2010 Beta2?

The message I get is that the file should be in some temporary project folder ("C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Temporary Projects\Credit Card\creditcard.jpg") but isn't there... after copying a file there, no difference... The unaltered image does display though in the main preview after clicking OK to the error.

Funny enough, it half display's correctly when I run it though... the shadow works but the refection doesn't... hmmm

Well, not sure why it happened but I've traced it to two properties of the border which are automatically added in VS2010B2, (can't vouch for any other versions.)

As soon as I remove the Height and VerticalAlignment properties from the border, it displays perfectly. May look into it further at some point but now I'm moving briskly on!

There are also border lines automatically drawn which are also worth getting rid of in this case.
