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?

    Thanks for this thread, Adam. It seems inevitable that there will be a strong field of applications and plug-ins to support XAML over the next year or two. XAML is the perfect format to help narrow the communications gap between Designer and Developer.
