XAMLON: XAML before Longhorn
I am amazed by all the early activity going on around Longhorn in the blogs I read, all the while Whidbey's release is still at least a year from now...
Anyways, waiting until Longhorn to benefit from declarative UI development seems like a long time. XAMLON is a library that attempts to bridge the gap by bringing a subset of XAML into the 1.1 .NET world.
Its approach is a bit different from Avalon's, as the XAML isn't compiled, but instead interpreted at runtime, and as a consequence the markup can't contain logic code. My guess is that's because the 1.1 framework doesn't support partial classes.
And now there's also www.myxaml.com, and open source initiative.Posted by: John (March 22, 2004 08:48 PM)
