for the purpose of explaination I prepared this screenshot showing what I have setup in Expression Blend 4 and what I am seeing in booth debug tools of Firefox and Google Chrome:
What I did:
Downloaded the latest Ms Silverlight Analytics Framework today from the project site, installed the setup and started expression blend. I added a few things on the stage such as 2 buttons.
From the components browser I added 2 TrackAction components to each of the 2 buttons, dragged a GoogleAnalytics component to the LayoutRoot level and a ConsoleAnalytics to it as well, as you can see in the Screenshot. The GoogleAnalytics component
got a Category string and Web Property ID string that should be valid.
For 2 TrackAction I defined a category named "VideoA" and for the other one "VideoB" booth without any values. Once compiling using F5 I inspected resulting "http://localhost:53617/Default.html" in GoogleChrome's JS inspector
and Firefox's firebug JS inspector. And in booth cases the Category string does not get traced. I tried some numbers at the "Value" property for the TrackAction components and they seem to get through but not the Category variable.
So I am posting this because maybe I am missing something here, the sample videos make it look easy but I got stuck at the most basic steps. I have to wait a day or 2 to see incomming results at the GoogleAnalytic page so I can't do that now, and obviously
I should be able to debug passed through variables using either Chrome or Firefox.
thanks in advance
