XAML Power Toys 3.4 Released


  • Download here:


    XAML Power Toys is a Visual Studio 2008 SP1 Multi-AppDomain Add-In that empowers WPF & Silverlight developers while working in the XAML editor.  Its Line of Business form generation tools, Grid tools,  DataGrid and ListView generation really shorten the XAML page layout time.

    It’s accessed through commands in the XAML editor context menu and the Solution Explorer item context menu.

    XAML Power Toys generates .NET 3.5 SP1 WPF compliant XAML and Silverlight 2 compliant XAML. 

    This version of XAML Power Toys is compatible with Silverlight 2.0 RTM.


    • Visual Studio 2008 with SP1
    • For Silverlight Development, install the latest Silverlight 2 as detailed on Scott Guthrie’s blog. (If you’re not doing Silverlight development this is not required.)
    • Windows XP, Vista, Server 2003 or Server 2008


    The primary goal of XAML Power Toys is to deliver tools that enable developers to quickly layout and maintain Line of Business Application forms using the UI controls that ship with Visual Studio.

  • Thank's for bringing that up.

    As a matter of fact I've watched the
    Silverlight 3 FireStarter Webcast
    and saw Karl Shiftlett presentation of XAML Power Toys.


    I've downloaded it but haven't really had a chance to experiment the options in Silverlight 3 however.

    If I'm right his demo was done in WPF. Are all options
    (Create a Business Form) available in combination with Silverlight 3
    or only compatible with WPF?
