Improve XAML editing experience in Visual Studio

Posted by K. M. on February 21, 2009

I have been quite busy for some time to put up any posts but this XAML tip (thanks to Fabrice) just needs to be “out there”

  1. Right-click on a XAML file in the Solution Explorer
  2. Select “Open With…”
  3. Select “Source Code (Text) Editor”
  4. Click on “Set as Default”
  5. Click OK
  6. You’re done!

This completely eliminates the useless XAML designer while still providing intellisense and tag collapsing.


Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
