Summary0001035: Crash when using x:Static for accessing value of public static field in C#
DescriptionHi guys,

consider this case:

    public static class LiquidColorsIcons
        public static readonly Color ColorWater = Color.FromArgb(0xFF, 0x0C, 0x8A, 0xD3);

And then:
<SolidColorBrush Color="{x:Static data:LiquidColorsIcons.ColorWater}" />

It works perfectly fine in WPF.
In 1.3.0 (2.0.0) release build it crashes with MemoryAccessViolation when I try to load that XAML file with GUI.LoadComponent() method.

TagsNo tags attached.

We don't have support for static reflection yet, and x:Static only works for enums.

Is this feature very important for you, or could you use a ResourceDictionary with StaticResources instead?

Thanks for clarification, Sergio!
I thought you already might have implemented proper support for x:Static as it working fine for enums and because NoesisGUI simply crashes without any proper error message in that case...

Oh, it's not that important then. As workaround we are using ResourceDictionary and finding these resources from C#. But finding these resources from C# is done with string identifiers so it's not so reliable as x:Static.

It would be much better if you could quickly add proper error message. We could live without x:Static :-).

We will fix the crash and provide a correct error message.

Sergio, as far as I understand this should be "trivial" to implement if we implemented the x:Static markup entirely in C# right?

BTW would love to have this supported :-) . But as I understand it requires support for C# MarkupExtensions?

No, MarkupExtensions are not needed in C# for this but the solution is not trivial because we need to extend our reflection system to support static properties. This is something we must implement soon or later though. It's been requested many times.

Is there something I might help you with? If it's only on C# side I can take a look at what's missing to add support for this.
