XAML TextBlock Performance gotcha

I’ve been using this.DebugSettings.IsTextPerformanceVisualizationEnabled = true to check on the text performance of my app and noticed this little gotcha. Consider the following code;

        <TextBlock Text="Using text property" />
        <TextBlock>Using text content</TextBlock>

When you run the app you’ll see the ‘Using text property’ is a pleasing shade of bright green but ‘Using text content’ is not using the optimised text rendering. Cheeky little gotcha. More info (including this) TextBlock
