XamlWriter Class

Provides a single static Save method (multiple signatures) that can be used for limited Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) serialization of provided runtime objects into XAML. This class cannot be inherited, and only has static methods.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Markup
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
public static class XamlWriter
You cannot directly create an instance of this class in XAML.

The serialization enabled by this class' Save method has a series of limitations, primarily due to the fact that the serialization enabled is explicitly run-time, and does not have access to possible design-time information in the original Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) (if any). For details, see Serialization Limitations of XamlWriter.Save.

Save is not allowed when running in Partial Trust.

The following example serializes a Button into a string using the XamlWriter class. The string is then deserialized back into a Button using the static Load method on the XamlReader class.

// Create the Button.
Button originalButton = new Button();
originalButton.Height = 50;
originalButton.Width = 100;
originalButton.Background = Brushes.AliceBlue;
originalButton.Content = "Click Me";

// Save the Button to a string.
string savedButton = XamlWriter.Save(originalButton);

// Load the button
StringReader stringReader = new StringReader(savedButton);
XmlReader xmlReader = XmlReader.Create(stringReader);
Button readerLoadButton = (Button)XamlReader.Load(xmlReader);
System.Object
  System.Windows.Markup.XamlWriter
