First of all, I need to apologize for my question if it offends some 1337s here.  I'm an engineer by day and wannabe programmer by night.

I'm trying to incorporate syncfusion into my current app.  I have referenced all the dll files in the syncfusion folder.  In my xaml file, this is what I have.  Attached is my xaml and .cs files.  Why isn't the autocomplete box showing?

Hello, I'm having this same problem.  My head is almost exploding.  I don't understand why the sftextboxext won't show at all.  Is this control compatible with windows 8.1?

Can you guys please take a look at the following sample project?  See if you can reproduce my problem.  The problem is simple.  All I get is a black screen when I run the project.  There is no autocomplete textbox at all.

Here is a screenshot of the project in VS2013.
