Xaml Inline coding


One interesting aspect is Xaml is that you can have inline code…. the syntax is as below


<Window x:Class=WindowsApplication1.Window1
xmlns=http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation
xmlns:x=http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml
Loaded=Window1_Loaded>
<
x:Code>
      <![CDATA[
              void Window1_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
              {
                   this.Title=”yoohoo”;
                  
TextBox tb = new TextBox();
                   tb.Text=”hello world”;
                   this.Content=tb;
               }
      
]]>
</
x:Code>
</
Window>

    Seems like a step back to me. How is this better than having a Form object of which you set its properties? The whole XML fetish with everythign seems a bit strange to me.

  2. I bet the designers did give this a thought and incorporated the best features in Xaml…

    Also, XML is probably the most popular and widespread – So IMHO its likely that any new markup lang will have to follow similar patterns. 😉
