  • XAML & C#

    Filed under:
    Where do you draw the line between XAML and C#? When to use what and where? The short of the stick is that many people associate XAML as the same thing as Avalon. In their book, it is the same (XAML is a catchier word than most other substitutes). As

  • The stakes are going up...

    Filed under:

    Interesting post on " Avalon, XAML as a discoverable API " by Matthew Adams. In the discoverable API piece, he ends with: But I don't think XAML quite delivers on that ease-of-use goal as it stands. I'm sure the intention is to build tooling around it

    I had a Path (System.Windows.Shapes.Path) that I wanted to show, but it wasn't exactly clear as to how I was going to size it because there aren't any dimension properties to modify. So, simple enough, I plopped it in-between some Viewbox tags, and I
