XamlName Grammar

XamlName Grammar is a specific grammar that is defined in the XAML language specification [MS-XAML], which is reproduced here for convenience.

The [MS-XAML] specification defines the grammar XamlName to identify the set of legal symbolic identifiers used for types and properties.

String values that are of type XamlName must conform to the following grammar:

XamlName ::= NameStartChar ( NameChar )* 
NameStartChar ::= LetterCharacter | '_' 
NameChar ::= NameStartChar | DecimalDigit | CombiningCharacter 
LetterCharacter ::= UnicodeLu | UnicodeLl | UnicodeLo | UnicodeLt | UnicodeNl 
DecimalDigit ::= UnicodeNd 
CombiningCharacter ::= UnicodeMn | UnicodeMc 

Which assumes the following general category values as defined in the Unicode Character Database

Lu
Letter, Uppercase
Ll
Letter, Lowercase
Lt
Letter, Titlecase
Lm
Letter, Modifier
Lo
Letter, Other
Mn
Mark, Non-Spacing
Mc
Mark, Spacing Combining
Nd
Number, Decimal
Nl
Number, Letter

XAML defines a second grammar, DottedXamlName, that is used for property and event qualified references, and also for attached members. For more information, see DependencyProperty and XAML Overview (WPF).

String values that are of type DottedXamlName must conform to the following grammar:

DottedXamlName ::= XamlName '.' XamlName

For the complete specification, see [MS-XAML].
