Dependency not shown when used from XAML only

Postby dybalabj » Mon Mar 03, 2014 5:39 pm


I have a dependency that is not showing up in the list in my SmartAssembly project (Kent.Boogaart.Converters.dll, can be downloaded from

If I use this dependency in code-behind (see this thread), then the dependency shows up. But if I only use the dependency in my XAML, then it's not showing in the list.

I am running SmartAssembly

Hi there,

Because SmartAssembly will only pick up on dependencies that are referenced in the main assembly's metadata, it will only detect dependencies that are directly referenced and called on by the code behind. (I did a quick check and it doesn't look like using an assembly from the xaml will add any reference to it in the metadata :/ )
