Ignorable design time namespace from Blend

Visual studio does not add it to files by default. And in new projects I create in Visual studio I find it annoying to create a random file just to get these namespaces and attribute out of it.

So here it is (tested on VS2010, WPF4). You can copy paste it into the root element of your xaml file :


xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"
xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006"
mc:Ignorable="d"


if only xaml designer had a snippet option I would make one :)
Enjoy!
