RE: What is XAML? A technique? A language? Both? XML# or XML++
XAML = technology for converting markup to code Avalon = The next generation of UI classes for the .NET Framework after Winforms XAML + Avalon = Markup language for building UIs in the .NET Framework XAML + Winforms = Markup language for building UIs in the .NET Framework XAML + ADO.NET = Markup language for building database applications in the .NET Framework XAML + System.Xml = Markup language for building XML applications in the .NET Framework I'm sure you get the point. -- PITHY WORDS OF WISDOM There is nothing more satisfying that having someone take a shot at you, and miss. ________________________________ From: Gerald Bauer [mailto:luxorxul@y...] Sent: Fri 11/5/2004 10:49 AM To: Dare Obasanjo; Don Demsak; xml-dev@l...

It seems you're in denial. If a list of XAML tags is not a "XAML tag reference" than please let us know what you call it. Also allow me to quote some descriptions from the XAML tag reference: * Table - Table is used to display complex data in tabular form using "XAML". * Pane - Provides a way to define window properties in "XAML" without launching a new window. * and so on Finally, allow me to highlight some descriptions that show that XAML is clearly targeted as an HTML alternative: * Paragraph - Implements a block-level element used to render text in a paragraph. Rendering behavior is analagous to that of the paragraph element in HTML. * Note - Implements a Note element, which is analagous to the BLOCKQUOTE Element in HTML. * and so on - Gerald ----------------------- Gerald Bauer Rich Client Conference (RichCon) 2005 - http://richcon.com XUL News Wire - http://xulnews.com XUL Alliance - http://xulalliance.org ______________________________________________________________________ Post your free ad now! http://personals.yahoo.ca
