XamlReader Class

Provides the means to parse XAML markup into an object.

Namespace: System.Windows.Markup
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in presentationframework.dll)

public class XamlReader

 This managed class is not typically used in XAML. 

The synchronous Load methods are static, but the asynchronous LoadAsync methods are not static and require an instance of the XamlReader class.

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

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

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

// Load the button
StringReader stringReader = new StringReader(savedButton);
XmlReader xmlReader = XmlReader.Create(stringReader);
Button readerLoadButton = (Button)XamlReader.Load(xmlReader);
