Xaml Editor in VS2008

November 21, 2007

As a guy who spends a lot of time thinking of Xaml, I’m absolutely thrilled that we’ve shipped VS with a "Xaml Language" aware text editor.  You’ll remember that since PDC 2003, we’ve been providing an XSD and having users use the Xml editor in VS.  The major downside there was that with new Types (custom controls and 3rd party controls) didn’t work with intellisense, and actually broke intellisense inside their content as well.

Now, the Xaml Editor can deal with new Types – I believe it can even deal with types that are described in the same project that you are using them!

Great stuff!

Try it out, and please give feedback on the Xaml Editor at the WPF Designer ("Cider") forum.
