Provides a single static Save method (multiple overloads) that can be used for limited XAML serialization of provided run-time objects into XAML markup.
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
Returns a XAML string that serializes the specified object and its properties.
Saves XAML information into a specified stream to serialize the specified object and its properties.
Saves XAML information into a custom serializer. The output of the serializer can then be used to serialize the provided object and its properties.
The serialization enabled by this method has a series of limitations. This is because the serialization enabled is explicitly run-time, and does not have access to possible design-time information in the original XAML (if any). For details, see Serialization Limitations of XamlWriter.Save.
Calling Save is not permitted when running in partial trust. This includes from XBAPs.
// Create the Button. Button originalButton = new Button(); originalButton.Height = 50; originalButton.Width = 100; originalButton.Background = Brushes.AliceBlue; originalButton.Content = "Click Me"; // Save the Button to a string. string savedButton = XamlWriter.Save(originalButton); // Load the button StringReader stringReader = new StringReader(savedButton); XmlReader xmlReader = XmlReader.Create(stringReader); Button readerLoadButton = (Button)XamlReader.Load(xmlReader);
