XAML In The Hand

In The Hand Ltd created a component to allow you to take advantage of the XAML Runtime for Windows Embedded from within .NET Compact Framework applications. This allowed you to create managed code applications for embedded devices using the power of Expression Blend and XAML to create compelling user experiences while also supporting the power and flexibility of the .NET Compact Framework. Code written for XAML In The Hand will be familiar to all Silverlight and WPF developers. This simplified the task of porting Windows Phone and desktop Silverlight applications to Windows Embedded devices.

Version 7.8 added support for Windows Embedded Compact 2013.

System Requirements

  • Windows Embedded Compact 7 or Compact 2013
