[#HOLOLENS] C# and XAML? It seems so ;) thanks to #Windows10 symbols


Today I will enter a little in the world of assumptions and guessing. In this post (link), James is guessing with a good base to predict how we will be able to use some tools to create HoloLens apps. The first part is a little messy, however it becomes interesting at the end.

Someone has taken pains to do a little reverse engineering on the core of Windows 10 and found this (link), a series of libraries named


From here, it is a little see classes and realize that the model is very similar to which you already know from WPF and WinRT, will that it is XAML. We have buttons, lists, text, etc.

Windows: Mirage:HologramFramework: Controls:Button
Windows: Mirage:HologramFramework: Controls:ListView
Windows: Mirage:HologramFramework: Controls:TextBlock
Windows: Mirage:HologramFramework: Controls:TextBox

The estimate of James is that the model will be something similar to

If anyone is interested in seeing this thoroughly, just download the Windows Symbol Packages for Windows 10, and after 700 MBs with any tool that helps us to read symbols because we will see something like the following.


In this other thread of the forum of Channel 9 is also speaks to this (link).

Personally I think that XAML is a valid choice for this kind of development, but that a much more powerful fwk to work with 3D models is also necessary. XAML has support for 3D but it doesn’t like me, this is a matter of taste. For now, we will have to wait until the Build / / to learn more on the subject.
