here's a little tool which I have created with our ANKHOR FlowSheet.

Our application is based on the XTreme Toolkit and we're also using the XAML controls everywhere.

When I'm adding a new piece of XAML, I usually used the MarkupPad first to create a prototype there.

Just copy and paste XAML into Visual Studio works of course, but I always have to convert it into the c++ format. This could get annoying when you have to do it over and over again..

So I created this little FlowSheet to do the conversion for me.

How to use it

1. Just copy and paste your XAML code from the MarkupPad into the left edit section of the Dashboard
2. Press F2 and the converted and ready to use C++ code can be copied from the right section.
    Right click into the edit fields and select the menu item 'Copy Value'
3. Paste it in your Visual Studio editor

This is the GUI:

The work is done in this macro and can easily modified to your needs:

So what do you need to use it ?

1. Download the free Community Edition of ANKHOR FlowSheet here :" rel="nofollow -

2. The FlowSheet itself :  uploads/903/" rel="nofollow - uploads/903/
    Unzip it first!
    ( A FlowSheet is not a binary and cannot contain any malware. They are compressed XML files. If you are curious, rename the suffix flsx to zip and decompress it )

Have fun and save time !

Best regards
