User Interface Diagram to WPF XAML

Source code generation allows you to produce WPF XAML code from your user interface diagrams.

You can turn your User Interface Diagram into WPF XAML code using the source code generation feature.

To generate the XAML follow these steps:

  • 1. Design your application view using the User Interface Diagram (Wireframing group)
  • 2. Open the Source Code Generation dialog:
    • from ribbon / Process / Generation / Source Code
    • or from menu / Tools / Generate Source Code
  • 3. Choose XAML from the Language drop down
  • 4. Choose MAUI from the Template drop down
  • 5. Choose the desired user interface diagram (or diagrams) in the left tree view
  • 6. Choose the output directory for the generated XAML source files
  • 7. Click on the Generate button to proceed and produce the files
