In my case (dbschemaeditor.com) I'm using LINQ To XML, and I have developed a desktop like app and the release mode of the XAP is just about 3OO kbytes (in your case the DLL's that you will be added will be compressed by the SL and added to the XAP), I could shorten it by chopping it into several XAP, and load features on demand, and use caching on the isolated storage.
What's the size of your XAP? Have you checked on Release mode?

Now I want to get rid of the border that shows up (and remains displayed) when it's clicked.

So I have been developing my application fine now (for about 3 months) then out of the blue, Visual Studio will not show any of the user controls I have created and Expression Blend will crash when I try to show any data template.
Back in Visual Studio, it's telling me that it can't find a static resource referenced in my resource dictionary and then it notifies me that in App.xaml the Source property of resource dictionary cannot be set to my resource dictionary. I am puzzled. It builds fine and executes fine. The xaml files all have their appropriate namespaces and scope.
I checked online and someone, in 2008, said this was a bug. Of course, I tried to download visual studio 2008 service pack 1 but that installation always hangs, never downloads and doesn't install any files. I have .net 3.5 sp1.
Any thoughts or ideas would be deeply appreciated.
So, the problem was that I had to move the resources to the top of the resource dictionary file so it could find them.
You're right, I don't think that you can just stick UIElements into ViewPort3D.
One option is to try to simulate your desired 3D animation with the regular 2D system. For example, check out this blog post by Tess Ferrandez which shows how to do a flip between 2 UI elements: Silverlight/WPF FlipImage Animation[^]
If you are using these animations as transitions and don't need to have active UI elements during those transitions, you may be able to persist your UI elements to an image and have that applied to a 3D element which you can add to your ViewPort3D.
I'm reading a XML file that has been stored in IsolatedStorage.
But this Exception was occurring Root element is missing.
I'm dead sure that there isn't any troubles in the XML file, So I don't the know the result of the Exception
