XAML --1

XAML is the next next generation of the windows presentation for applications.

Think if XAML as a programing language where in the front end - GUI is all governed by XML tags...for each control which is added on the screen , there is an entry in the XAML file, in the XML node entry..

XAML is used as the front end GUI part and the Event Driven part of the XAML is coded in the back *.xaml.cs file..for example, if you want to create a message box which needs to be pop up on a click of a button of button. The Messagebox pop up code is written in the *.xaml.cs file.

1.Add the button to the XAML screen and you can see an entry like :

<--- --->

2. Now on the click button , we i have written the OnClick event.

3. The code which must be written for this click event must be written on the OnClick function in the XAML.Cs file.

MessageBox.Show("Senthil in XAML!!!!");

4.Just the above is not enogh , there needs to be a routedevent which needs to be created :

button2.Click += new RoutedEventHandler(Onb2Click);

public void Onb2Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)

5. Its not just the code which is written in the Clickevent , but there needs to be a RoutedEventArgs created and which is done by button2.Click += new RoutedEventHandler(Onb2Click);

XAML, is the buzz word of WPF --windows presentatin foundation ...
XAML is gaining much speed in the applications user experience..

when user experience is considered to the top priority for any application, the presentation layer is the one which needs to be considered much.

XAML is Extensible application markup language by Microsoft..
using XAML rich UI based applications can be created.
As a Dotnet developer there can be segregation of the UI layers from the midlle warfe business logics layer...
XAML consists of the UI Garphics and the mark up language for the UI. Its all XML based...
As of now, there is a big gap in combination of documents , Audio , Video which can be presented in the UI, but with the Evolution of XAML, all the 3 can be linked which gets a great user experience...

[The thirst for XMAL will continue in the next posts....]
