A reader wrote and asked: "A quick question: how did you set your VS to format the XAML in the way that it does?"
Here's how to do it:
In Visual Studio click on Tools -> Options
When the Options window opens, make sure Show All Settings is clicked, and then click on the triangle next to Text Editor to expand that section
Scroll down to XAML and expand it. Click on each sub-category (General, Tabs, and expand Formatting) to set the options for formatting XAML the way you want. When you are done click OK.
Once all of your options are set the way you want them, you may want to back up your options by selecting Tools -> Import and Export Settings (a topic for another Tip of the Day)
