When creating XAML by hand isn’t feasible


In my previous XAML-related post, Mike asked about my conversion from SVG to XAML.  I know of two such programs that help with this (and I see Will also listed them in a comment):



  • XAMLConverter from Xamlon, which is currently in sync with the March CTP
  • SVG2XAML, a gotdotnet workspace.  I haven’t tried this, but I believe it only works with the PDC 2003 Longhorn build, so that’s probably not going to help many people.

I actually couldn’t use either of these in my case, since I originally created the playing cards to be compatible with the next Avalon CTP then backported them to the March CTP.


As for 3D XAML, I know of:



  • ZAM 3D, which is also in sync with the March CTP

I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot more tool support for XAML in the near future, but is anyone aware of other helpful tools out there?

  3. Last month I talked about tools that create XAML for you, so you don’t have to write it by hand. …
