The XAML toolkit, announced here and downloadable here, provides a number of FxCop rules for analyzing your XAML. This post describes how the XAML Toolkit also helps you write FxCop rules.

BaseXamlRule implements the Check(Resource resource) method. This method will:
1: public abstract void CheckXaml(XamlDomObject rootObjectNode,

1: internal virtual bool IsRuleValidForXamlFlavor(ResourceType xamlFlavor)
3: return true;
1: internal enum ResourceType
