    Xaml

    Ok, first thoughts on NT8 = Awesome, well done.

    I was wondering, with the application being built on WPF and no longer WinForms do we as 'users' have access to load XAML files for our own custom UI?

    For example if I wanted to add a XAML grid to the right margin of a chart in order to add custom UI such as a C# DataTable is there any method for this via XAML or an I tied to the constants of the .cs file?

    Or maybe a better question would be, does the NijaScript editor compile .xaml files as well as .cs files.

    For those who does not know XAML is a markup language that WPF uses to design and tweak layouts of WPF windows. I am sure behind the scene NT8 has a ton of XAML code

    Cheers,

    Hello SodyTexas,

    Thank you for your post.

    I know at this point we would need to compile XAML in Visual Studio as the NinjaScript Editor would not offer an option to compile XAML files. I will let you know more on your request once I speak with development.

      I have tried extending skin XAML files but the only thing I achieved was lack of styling on the chart

        Thank you sir,

        Playing with Add On, as you call it, made me think how awesome a mark up language like XAML would set NT8 apart.

        Keep up the great work

            Excellent! If possible a basic example would be appreciated.
