XAML includes four main categories of elements: panels, controls, elements associated with a document, and graphic shapes. 7 classes of panels are declared that set the principles for displaying elements embedded in them. To set the position of elements relative to the borders of the parent panel, attributes are used in the manner of properties in object-oriented languages. This syntax is not entirely consistent with CSS guidelines, but is familiar to desktop programmers.
XAML-declared applications can include many pages. The PageViewer control allows you to paginate content and provides navigation on them. The ContextMenu element helps in creating application navigation menus. The procedural language code can be placed directly in the XAML file or assigned during the assembly of the project.

XAML is widely used in the .NET Framework 3.0, especially in the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Windows Workflow Foundation (WWF), and Silverlight . In WPF, XAML is used as a user interface markup language for defining user interface elements, data binding, event support, and other properties. In WWF, using XAML, you can determine the sequence of actions (workflows).
XAML files can be created and edited using visual design tools, such as: Microsoft Expression Blend, Microsoft Visual Studio, WPF visual designer. They can also be created using a standard text editor, a code editor such as: XAMLPad, or a graphic editor such as Vectropy.
Everything created or implemented in XAML can be expressed using more traditional .NET languages, such as: C # or Visual Basic.NET. However, a key aspect of the technology is to reduce the complexity of the tools used to process XAML, since XAML is based on XML. As a result of this, there are many products that create XAML-based applications. Because XAML is XML-based, developers and designers have the ability to work on content simultaneously without the need for compilation.
