  • I think you have to read about the difference between WPF and Silverlight first, I found the following link pretty useful in this regard. 

    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/944608/wpf-vs-silverlight

     

    Whereas, XAML (short for Extensible Application Markup Language and pronounced as “zammel”) is a markup

    language used to instantiate .NET objects. Although XAML is a technology that can be applied to many

    different problem domains, its primary role in life is to construct WPF user interfaces. In other words,

    XAML documents define the arrangement of panels, buttons, and controls that make up the windows in

    a WPF application.

     

    A XAML browser application is known as XBAP, please take a look at the following link to better understand the XBAP

  • XAML is an xml similar language where you define objects in a declarative way, that is used to specify the controls of the User Interfaces ob both wpf and Silverlight.

    Silverlight is a plug-in for various browser that brings some of the wpf and .net capability within a browser application. Xbap are WPF applications able to run in Internet explorer instead than in stand alone windows.

  • > so this xaml is like the aspx or the html for the arrangement of the controls! am i right..??

    I would say "no".
    XAML just builds an object hierarchy by the use of paramterless default
    constructors and setting properties to values or another objects, and
    filling collections.

    Using XAML for WPF Windows/Usercontrols/Pages defines the logical tree
    which in turn of course results in an visual arrangement of controls.

  • I think the only similarity between XAML and ASPX page is that they both provide separate UI design and UI code, so the Graphics designers can work on the front end (XAML) and coder can work on the backend (cs file)
