Hello,

we are currently using your SyntaxEditor Web Languages Add-on to edit XAML files.

What we really need, is a true XAML Editor AddOn with support for the types references and defined in the project. The XML-SyntaxEditor does not know about WPF, Classes and Types of course.

 

Do you plan to develop anything in this matter? If so, when can we expect a XAML Language AddOn?

If you don't plan to develop such a language AddOn, what else can we do to make the XML Editor more like a true XAML Editor?

Hello,

Sorry but at the moment we don't have a XAML language implemented.  It is something on our TODO list and I'll add the request to the list.  We don't have a date on it as we are working on more core SyntaxEditor features right now.

To implement it yourself, you'd probably want to get the Web Languages Add-on's source code.  You'd also need to harness the .NET Languages Add-on because you'd need to effectively be translating all XAML files to related C#/VB code and then place that code in the .NET add-on's project assembly so it is available for reflection.  You'd need the .NET add-on's reflection data so that you could know what types and members are available since we do a great job of exposing that information.  You might be able to get all that done without the .NET add-on's source code, but I'm not sure.  Implementing it yourself wouldn't be easy but at least we've already implemented portions of what you'd need.
