- [Instructor] I'll use the XAML editor…in Visual Studio for this course.…I'd like to share some of my favorite IDE settings…for the editor, ones that I feel make me…more productive when reading and writing XAML.…This is a WPF project, but what I'm showing here…is the same in the other flavors of XAML.…In the Solution Explorer I can click on this XAML file…and that'll open something called the Designer.…In this case it has a visual designer…on the top half of the screen, and this is where…I can see a visual representation of the UI,…I can manipulate it with the tool box,…the property window, I can move things with my mouse…or move 'em around with my keyboard.…
On the bottom half of the screen is the Text Editor.…This is the XML or the XAML,…it works like most text editors you're familiar with.…In this designer I can switch the panes by clicking…on this button, this is called the Swap Panes button…and it'll move the text to the top of the window…and the designer to the bottom of the window…if I prefer that layout, and if I don't like this layout…
