xml:space Handling in XAML
xml:space attribute is an XML-defined attribute that declares the significant white-space processing behavior within an object element. This behavior is relevant for all content (inner text) contained within the element where
xml:space is declared, and also scopes to child elements.
XAML Attribute Usage
<object xml:space="preserve" />
- or -
<object xml:space="default" />
The definition for the
xml:space attribute in XAML including its two possible values is derived from
xml:space as defined as a "special attribute" by W3C specifications for XML.
The default value of the
xml:space attribute is the literal value
"default". For the value
"default", or if
xml:space is not indicated at all, the behavior of significant white-space parsing is the default handling, as defined in the topic White-space processing in XAML.
To preserve white space within object element content, specify
xml:space="preserve" on that object element.
Under most interpretations, the
xml:space attribute effects and the value of the attribute are scoped to child elements.
