ParserContext ParserContext ParserContext ParserContext Class


Provides context information required by a XAML parser.

public ref class ParserContext : System::Windows::Markup::IUriContext
public class ParserContext : System.Windows.Markup.IUriContext
type ParserContext = class
    interface IUriContext
Public Class ParserContext
Implements IUriContext


The XAML parser that this context refers to is the .NET Framework 3.5 era XAML parser API that is specific to the WPF implementation, as exposed in System.Windows.Markup.XamlReader and System.Windows.Markup.XamlWriter.

The XAML system in .NET Framework 4 uses a more sophisticated XAML type system and thus also uses a different type of context for XAML processing operations. For more information, see XamlSchemaContext.

A ParserContext is typically used as an input for a call to a XamlReader operation. In these cases, you are using overloads of XamlReader.Load or XamlReader.LoadAsync where supplying the ParserContext provides greater control over factors such as the type mapping to XAML, or altering XML processing defaults. Using a ParserContext as opposed to using System.Windows.Markup.XamlReader default behavior is an advanced scenario.

xml:lang and xml:space behavior is one of the aspects of a context you can override. By default, the parser context uses en-us based values. For more information on why the language-level context for XAML uses en-us rather than a culture-invariant value, see WPF Globalization and Localization Overview.
