RE: What is XAML? A technique? A language? Both? XML# or XML++
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. len From: Gerald Bauer [mailto:luxorxul@y...] XAML is a declarative markup language that defines an object model
