Couple of XAML Editor enchancements in Visual Studio 2008 SP1

The "Go To Definition" functionality in the XMAL code behind editor has been enhanced in Visual Studio 2008. Invoking it on a reference of a control in the XAML code behind page, now takes the user to the definition of the control in XMAL code. What a pleasant change from the prior behavior where invoking the command would take the user to the designer generated code behind page.

So when you do this:

The “Find all References” functionality has also been enchanced with the service pack. Invoking it on a reference of a control in the XAML code behind page, now inclues the references made in the XAML code also.

So when you do this:

You get this (Note the third reference in the tablecontrol.xaml file):
