[antlr-interest] Problem with integrating ANTLR with XAML

I'm relatively new to ANTLR and as a test I wrote a sample program that uses
ANTLR to define a grammar that allows
mathematical expressions such as x^2 + 4*x*cos(x) to be entered and then
have a graph of the function drawn.
The program is written in C# using WPF and XAML to define the layout, and
uses the ANTLR3 plugin for Visual Studio 2010.
Everything works fine unless I try to define an xmlns namespace alias for
the local namespace in which the program's code is written
in MainWindow.xaml. That is, I add the line
to the Window tag at the start of the XAML file, where FormulaPlotter is the
namespace of my code. Doing this generates 8
errors of the sort
FormulaLexer does not have a constructor with 1 argument (although it does)
start() method not found
and other errors complaining about constructors or methods in the lexer or
parser not being found.
The only workaround I have found for this is to write the relevant bits of
the program in the C# code-behind file,
which is quite awkward for some of the stuff I want to do.
Does anyone know of a fix for this problem?
