   RE: [xml-dev] What is XAML? A technique? A language? Both? XML# or XML++

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

From the limited perspective of working with VisualStudio.Net 2003, 
I hazard it extends the concepts used for building custom controls 
to the whole GUI.

Demsak's explanation seems right.  Declare objects in C# or in XAML. 
The engine does the rest... if the markup 
editor holds together, that is.  VS.Net's integration of HTML, 
asp:whatsis and C# (etc.) is productive but occasionally flakey. 
A misstep when editing the codebehind file or in the HTML can 
blow away a lot of controls on a page without warning.

Overall though, particularly with respect to building and 
applying web services, this is one of the most productive 
IDE's I've used.  Easy to learn, and once learned, a fast 
way to build apps without too much hassle.  Very nice.

   XAML is a declarative markup language that defines
an object model
