Grids

Grids take a lot of boilerplate code, instead use the intellisense feature to write the code for you:

This produces the following code to get you started:

<Grid>
    <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
    </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
    <Grid.RowDefinitions>
    </Grid.RowDefinitions>

</Grid>

Alongside the Grid there are the Row and Column definitions:

<RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
<RowDefinition Height="*"/>
<RowDefinition Height=""/>

<RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
<RowDefinition Height="*"/>
<RowDefinition Height=""/>    

There are also Shorthand Declaration Refactorings to swap to the new simplified format. See the blog post for more details.
