Markup Pad Sample

The MarkupPad is a utility provided that allows Markup to be created and the result seen in real-time just as it would when used in an application. The MarkupPad is similar to FrontPage only for XAML. Although the tool is not required to write XAML (since Codejock uses standard XAML syntax), but it is helpful as you can see what the XAML is creating as the code is typed as well as see any errors in the syntax. As soon as an error is typed all the text will turn red and a small note will be displayed in the statusbar with the current error. It is also good to use the MarkupPad as not all XAML features are supported and when an invalid or non-supported tag is used the MarkupPad will let you know.

Sample Uses:
Command Bars, Controls, Docking Pane
