Baml2006Reader Class

Processes XAML in optimized BAML form and produces a XAML node stream.


Namespace:  System.Windows.Baml2006
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public class Baml2006Reader : XamlReader, 

The Baml2006Reader type exposes the following members.

Public methodBaml2006Reader(Stream)Initializes a new instance of the Baml2006Reader class based on an input stream.
Public methodBaml2006Reader(String)Initializes a new instance of the Baml2006Reader class, based on the file name of a local file to read.
Public methodBaml2006Reader(Stream, XamlReaderSettings)Initializes a new instance of the Baml2006Reader class based on an input stream and reader settings.

Protected propertyIsDisposedGets whether Dispose has been called. (Inherited from XamlReader.)
Public propertyIsEofGets a value that reports whether the reader position is at the end of file. (Overrides XamlReader.IsEof.)
Public propertyMemberGets the current member at the reader position, if the reader position is on a StartMember. (Overrides XamlReader.Member.)
Public propertyNamespaceGets the XAML namespace from the current node. (Overrides XamlReader.Namespace.)
Public propertyNodeTypeGets the type of the current node. (Overrides XamlReader.NodeType.)
Public propertySchemaContextGets an object that provides schema context information for the information set. (Overrides XamlReader.SchemaContext.)
Public propertyTypeGets the XamlType of the current node. (Overrides XamlReader.Type.)
Public propertyValueGets the value of the current node. (Overrides XamlReader.Value.)

Public methodCloseCloses the XAML node stream. (Inherited from XamlReader.)
Protected methodDisposeReleases the unmanaged resources used by the Baml2006Reader and optionally releases the managed resources. (Overrides XamlReader.Dispose(Boolean).)
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodReadProvides the next XAML node from the source BAML, if a node is available. (Overrides XamlReader.Read().)
Public methodReadSubtreeReturns a XamlReader that is based on the current XamlReader, where the returned XamlReader is used to iterate through a subtree of the XAML node structure. (Inherited from XamlReader.)
Public methodSkipSkips the current node and advances the reader position to the next node. (Inherited from XamlReader.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIDisposable.DisposeInfrastructure. Releases all resources used by the current instance of the XamlReader class. (Inherited from XamlReader.)

Explicit interface implemetationPrivate propertyIXamlLineInfo.LinePositionInfrastructure. See LinePosition.

BAML form is an optimized form of XAML used by the WPF XAML implementation. It is optimized in the sense that it uses internal lookups and tokens for commonly used types or members. The optimization is useful as an implementation detail that addresses packaging size and load time for WPF application scenarios that involve XAML. The Baml2006Reader reader class constitutes much of the public API surface that a WPF application developer has for interacting with BAML.

The XAML optimized to BAML form may need to be localized. Localization of XAML and possible tools pathways for doing so is not discussed in this topic. See Globalization for WPF.

Baml2006Reader uses an internally implemented XAML schema context. This schema context provides the logic necessary for looking up the types in BAML form, including referencing the optimizations and tokens that are inherent in BAML.

The main scenario for Baml2006Reader is to use it as the XamlReader implementation that you pass to a call to XamlReader.Load.
