XamlServices.Load Method (Stream)
Loads a Stream source for a XAML reader and writes its output as an object graph.
Assembly: System.Xaml (in System.Xaml.dll)
Different signatures for the method specify different types of input for the source XAML. The internal implementation first creates an XmlReader by calling Create(Stream) and then creates a new instance of a specialized XamlReader that processes the input.
In order for the call to successfully create an object graph, the following must be true:
The source is well-formed and valid XML.
The source is valid XAML at the language level.
The XAML types that are specified in the source XAML must resolve to backing types in the relevant XAML namespaces. For example, XAML types for WPF namespaces can resolve to a WPF XAML namespace as specified in the XAML; the assemblies for WPF must be included in the project or available in the run time; and so on.
XamlServices is not the recommended XAML reading or XAML writing API set if you are processing Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) types, or types based on WPF. For WPF usage, use System.Windows.Markup.XamlReader for reading or loading XAML; and System.Windows.Markup.XamlWriter for writing back XAML. These classes use System.Xaml APIs internally in their implementation; however, they also provide support for WPF-specific concepts that influence the nature of XAML reading and writing, such as optimizations for dependency properties.
