    Drew Marsh asked a good question recently about why we didn't Uri-ize the Definition xmlns yet... I answered via a comment here . Keep raising issues that you don't see getting fixed... Thanks, Rob PS. Making any breaking change is way too expensive. We are working on a tool right now that can make any...

  • Attached Properties, Dependency Object, Dependency Properties

    Drew Marsh wrote a great intro to those topics today. I'll add a few things...Drew covers the concept of Attached Properties. He should update the post to include examples of non-attached properties as well... We have tried to make the fact that DependencyProperties exist pretty hidden. I can remember...

  • new Xaml terminology.

    Among other things, I (and my teammates) have spent much of the last year designing significant improvements to xaml2003 that you saw at the PDC in October 2003.

  • Walking the thin line with XAML

    Chris positions XAML vs general serialization technologies and approaches. ...
