Beginning VB 2008
I hve Wrox's book, Beginning Visual Basic 2008 and have just started the XAML section which shows how to create a WPF application. In part of the setup procedures, it states to place a border control and an image (jpg according to the instruction) inside of the border tag.

The part I can't get through is that the book advises to set a BitmapEffect property (of the border tag) to a certain value, but when I select the border tag in the XAML editor, BitmapEffect doesn't show up in the Properties panel.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance

Solved (sort of)
The way I solved it was by hand-typing the bitmapeffect property in the raw XAML code:

<Border HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="0,60,0,0" Name="Border1" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="380" Height="200">
<DropShadowBitmapEffect Opacity="0.5" ShadowDepth="8" Softness="1">
<SkewTransform CenterX="0" CenterY="0" AngleX="0" AngleY="-3">

<Image Height="185" Name="Image1" Stretch="Fill" Width="300" Source="/CreditCard;component/CreditCard.jpg" />
