Baml2006Reader Class

Baml2006Reader Class

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

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, IXamlLineInfo


Initializes a new instance of the Baml2006Reader class based on an input stream.

System_CAPS_pubmethodBaml2006Reader(Stream, XamlReaderSettings)

Initializes a new instance of the Baml2006Reader class based on an input stream and reader settings.


Initializes a new instance of the Baml2006Reader class, based on the file name of a local file to read.


Gets whether Dispose has been called.(Inherited from XamlReader.)


Gets a value that reports whether the reader position is at the end of file.(Overrides XamlReader.IsEof.)


Gets the current member at the reader position, if the reader position is on a StartMember.(Overrides XamlReader.Member.)


Gets the XAML namespace from the current node.(Overrides XamlReader.Namespace.)


Gets the type of the current node.(Overrides XamlReader.NodeType.)


Gets an object that provides schema context information for the information set.(Overrides XamlReader.SchemaContext.)


Gets the XamlType of the current node.(Overrides XamlReader.Type.)


Gets the value of the current node.(Overrides XamlReader.Value.)


Closes the XAML node stream.(Inherited from XamlReader.)


Releases the unmanaged resources used by the Baml2006Reader and optionally releases the managed resources. (Overrides XamlReader.Dispose(Boolean).)


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)


Provides the next XAML node from the source BAML, if a node is available. (Overrides XamlReader.Read().)


Returns 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.)


Skips the current node and advances the reader position to the next node.(Inherited from XamlReader.)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Releases all resources used by the current instance of the XamlReader class.(Inherited from XamlReader.)

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.
