Provides context information required by a XAML parser.
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml
Thetype exposes the following members.
|BaseUri||Gets or sets the base URI for this context.|
|XamlTypeMapper||Gets or sets the XamlTypeMapper to use with this .|
|XmlLang||Gets or sets the xml:lang string for this context.|
|XmlnsDictionary||Gets the XAML namespace dictionary for this XAML parser context.|
|XmlSpace||Gets or sets the character for xml:space or this context.|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToXmlParserContext||Converts an to an XmlParserContext.|
The XAML parser that this context refers to is the .NET Framework 3.5 era XAML parser API that is specific to the WPF implementation, as exposed in System.Windows.Markup.XamlReader and System.Windows.Markup.XamlWriter.
The XAML system in .NET Framework 4 uses a more sophisticated XAML type system and thus also uses a different type of context for XAML processing operations. For more information, see XamlSchemaContext.
A is typically used as an input for a call to a XamlReader operation. In these cases, you are using overloads of XamlReader.Load or XamlReader.LoadAsync where supplying the provides greater control over factors such as the type mapping to XAML, or altering XML processing defaults. Using a as opposed to using System.Windows.Markup.XamlReader default behavior is an advanced scenario.
xml:lang and xml:space behavior is one of the aspects of a context you can override. By default, the parser context uses en-us based values. For more information on why the language-level context for XAML uses en-us rather than a culture-invariant value, see WPF Globalization and Localization Overview.
