XAML Compilation

December 22, 2008 Leave a comment

XAML compilation involves three things :

  1. Converting XAML file in special binary format (namely BAML)
  2. embedding the converted content as a binary resource in the assembly being built
  3. performing the plumbing work that connects XAML with procedural code

Point to ponder :-

Normally XAML file declartaion starts with x:Class but it can also do without it. When x:Class is not used it means it’s pure xaml file without any code behind file. It means features related to procedural code can not be used.
