ParserContext Class

 

Provides context information required by a XAML parser.

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

System.Object
  System.Windows.Markup.ParserContext

type ParserContext = 
    class
        interface IUriContext
    end

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodParserContext()

Initializes a new instance of the ParserContext class.

System_CAPS_pubmethodParserContext(XmlParserContext)

Initializes a new instance of the ParserContext class by using the specified XmlParserContext.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyBaseUri

Gets or sets the base URI for this context.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyXamlTypeMapper

Gets or sets the XamlTypeMapper to use with this ParserContext.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyXmlLang

Gets or sets the xml:lang string for this context.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyXmlnsDictionary

Gets the XAML namespace dictionary for this XAML parser context.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyXmlSpace

Gets or sets the character for xml:space or this context.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

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

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

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

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

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

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

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

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

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

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

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

System_CAPS_pubmethodSystem_CAPS_staticToXmlParserContext(ParserContext)

Converts an ParserContext to an XmlParserContext.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_puboperatorSystem_CAPS_staticImplicit(ParserContext to XmlParserContext)

Converts a XAML ParserContext to an XmlParserContext.

The XAML parser that this context refers to is the .NET Framework 3.5 era XAML parser API that is specific to the WPF implementation, as exposed in System.Windows.Markup.XamlReader and System.Windows.Markup.XamlWriter.

The XAML system in .NET Framework 4 uses a more sophisticated XAML type system and thus also uses a different type of context for XAML processing operations. For more information, see XamlSchemaContext

A ParserContext is typically used as an input for a call to a XamlReader operation. In these cases, you are using overloads of XamlReader.Load or XamlReader.LoadAsync where supplying the ParserContext provides greater control over factors such as the type mapping to XAML, or altering XML processing defaults. Using a ParserContext as opposed to using System.Windows.Markup.XamlReader default behavior is an advanced scenario.

xml:lang and xml:space behavior is one of the aspects of a context you can override. By default, the parser context uses en-us based values. For more information on why the language-level context for XAML uses en-us rather than a culture-invariant value, see WPF Globalization and Localization Overview.
