WPF Markup Extensions

In my previous article I explored expanding enumerations into combo boxes and the markup that's required to achieve that effect. While the syntax for this approach is verbose what this means, in terms of what is possible within the bounds of markup, is very compelling - being able to call methods directly from markup really opens the door (or Pandora's box) on the possibilities for declarative programming within XAML.

Having said that what I would like to explore in this article is not the power of declarative programming but attempt to improve of the syntax and verbosity required for the solution provided; to that end I want to talk about "Markup Extensions". (more...)
