Escape the Curly Braces in XAML

If you want to set the value of a property to a string that begins with the open curly brace in XAML , you may want to escape  it in order to avoid it being treated as markup extension.

You can do this by preceding the string with the empty pair of curly braces. Below is a sample code snippet on how to do it.

          {This is a developerpublishblog}
        </Button.Content>
</Button>
