What is an XBF file?

File created by Microsoft Visual Studio, A Windows SDK; contains a pre-parsed binary representation of a .XAML file produced by the XamlBinaryWriter class; intended to be write-once.

More Information

By producing the XBF file, loading and parsing performance becomes better, especially when loading XAML files that define large resources.

The XBF file will appear as App.xbf in the subdirectory of its related application.

NOTE: If you compile your XAML file into the XBF format you should still maintain the XAML in its text state so that it remains human-readable.
