Hi Experts:

    I am developing SilverLight 4 applications with Visual Studio 2010.
    In the XAML tags there are some attributes start with "x:" (see the attached screenshoot). I understand that the word like "xmlns:" has the meaning of "XML Name Space" and it is used to define name spaces. Then what does "x:" mean? Any information/reference about how "x:" works will be appriciated.
    Thank you.

It is a namespace prefix. It states that that specific element belongs to a particular namespace. In your example the "x" prefix corresponds to the:
      http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml

namespace.

Hi carl tawn:

    Then how does the elements in this particular namespace hook up with the elements in the XAML? For example, for <Application.Resources> element, only x:Uid is available, but for <Grid> element, x:FieldModifier, x:Name and x:Uid are all available?
    Thankyou.
