XamlPadX v2


Season’s greetings guys 🙂 Hope your Christmas was great. Ok so before we go into the next year I thought I’ll take a look at XamlPadX since it will get a bit tough to spend some time on it in the next year. So XamlpadX v2 looks like:




New features:
1> Line numbers in the Editing box
2> Written xaml can now be indented automatically(Ctrl I or right click and click on the menu item)
3> Closing tags are automatically generated (Note that it doesnt look forward while generating the closing tag. This is to keep it as simple as possible)
    So if you have something like <A </A> and then type in the ‘>’ after the first A you will end up with <A></A></A>.
4> Theres an Open/Save File menu for opening/saving the xaml from/in different locations
5> A snazzy splash screen 🙂
6> Vista-ish app icon


The exe is attached (unfortunately xamlpad code is not yet public). However, I will soon be posting some of the features (like the color picker) as independent tools with the code. :). Also bear in mind that the exe runs faster after the first run (during which some resources are saved in the local folder). 


Have fun and Happy New Year.

    Nice, though if I remember correctly the Vista UX guidelines say you shouldn’t have a splash screen 😉

  2. llester says:

    the splash screen is just to provide feedback to the user that somethings happenning…. 🙂

    OK, so you’ve just decided that WPF is the strategic technology of choice for your next-generation application,

  5. Thanks to Tim I’ve probably got a few bits and pieces to install to get my machine up to dream spec for

  6. Lester’s WPF blog : XamlPadX v2 より。 XamlPadXのv2がリリースされています。 新機能は、行番号の表示、自動インデント、タグを自動で閉じるなどです。

    er… wouldn’t it be good if there were intellisense just like snippetcompiler ;)</hint>

    can’t we cut and paste the code from snippet compiler into xamlpadX2 and get snipxamcompad2? 😉

  8. llester says:

    thats a possibility rob..but then the snippet would be a winform control.. so it would be necessary to host it in elementhost and this makes the perf not so desirable when events are firing constantly.

    Also I could make the intellisense enabled with the syntax coloring by putting a RTB instead of a textbox. But for perf reasons a textbox is the best.

    Wow!  XamlPadX v2 is awesome!! 😀

    Thanks a lot for publishing it.  The Style Snooper, Color Picker, and Command Interpreter tools will definitely come in handy.

    What is the ‘Core Xaml’ tab for?  I didn’t see any help text explaining what you would use it for.

    Thanks again.

    The core xaml is how the xamlwriter saves the xaml… gives an idea as to how the object is being saved.. its more a testing featur rather than a dev feature 🙂

    Para empezar a trabajar con .NET 3.0 y con Windows Presentation Foundation hay que tener una buena máquina
