Silverlight Debugging Challenge

In about a week, I'll be posting a video on creating a form that responds to keyboard shortcuts (as an intro to a video on user controls).

This is also covered in the tutorial User Controls)

As a challenge to those of you who are already comfortable with styles and data-binding and who "don't need no stinkin' video" — I've posted a broken version of the program for you to debug. <chortle>


Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to find the bug, and fix it.

In the video I show this broken version and why it is broken, and then I fix it;  but if you'd like to get ahead of the curve and try your hand… have at it. It's a bit sneaky.

What is supposed to happen when you run the app is that if you hit Control-C the address of the Computer Museum is filled in and if you hit Control-M the address of Microsoft is filled in.  But it don't. <cackle>
