Remarks

XAML processor uses to determine the content property.

Decorating types with ContentPropertyAttribute allows shorter XAML syntax. As

ContentView has a ContentProperty attribute applied, this XAML is valid:

<ContentView>
  <Label Text="Hello, Forms"/>
</ContentView>
This is equivalent to the following, more explicit XAML

<ContentView>
  <ContentView.Content>
    <Label Text="Hello, Forms"/>
  </ContentView.Content>
</ContentView>
