Understanding XAMLPad and XAMLPadX



XamlPad (xamlpad.exe) is a basic visual editor for Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML).

Location: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\bin\XamlPad.exe (you need to install Windows SDK obviously)

Features:
  • Real-time editing and display of XAML content.
  • Auto parse, syntax validation and redisplay of content.
  • Basic text editing commands, including copy, paste, undo and find.
  • XAML errors are reported in the status bar.
  • XAML contents is shown in a visual tree
  • Use XamlPad.exe to load your XAML file
XamlPadX:


My thoughts:
This is a very basic tool and doesn't have intellisense, so if you have access to Visual Studio, don't bother using this tool!
