      I implemented a cross-platform workaround for FindAncestor binding in WPF/UWP. It's not pretty but it works.

      Now if only we had MarkupExtension we would be able to get somewhere with this platform :S

          An always happy Friday as I just got the TFS complete email :) As this hasn’t hit an insider preview SDK, i’m going to mark this still as “working on it” still BUT … this will be coming to an insider build near you!

          This item heart is markup extensions. There is one item that will not be there however that is relevant to markup extensions, IServiceProvider. I created a new item for that but we are working on this item [https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/110705-universal-windows-platform/suggestions/19416094-iserviceprovider-for-markup-extensions-for-wpf-par]. We have created a new one and we are working on that (that includes IProvideValueTarget and INameScope) but feel we have enough to ship this and mark this larger work item done and we do point out in reference to more work items need to happen, namely the work around IServiceProvider.

          Also XamlServices.Load / Save isn’t directly related to markup extenstion so we’re viewing that…

          Very very important for us to port a large WPF control library to UWP. The lack of x:Static would be acceptable if we had MarkupExtension and could write our own. That's what we did for Silverlight.

          The only thing stopping us porting to UWP (our customers are requested UWP) is MarkupExtension. It basically prevents our entire library from working..
