Description Goncalo Oliveira 2013-02-04 11:32:18 UTC
When trying to set an id for a view that has none set yet, an exception is thrown (Object reference not set to an instance of an object).

MfA 4.4.54
Only checked with Visual Studio (2010 and 2012).

How to replicate

Case 1

1. Create a new layout
2. Try to set an id to root element

Case 2

1. Open an existing layout
2. Clear the id of an existing element
3. Try to set an id to the same element
