x:Class: Specifies the CLR namespace and class name for the class that provides code-behind for a XAML page.
<object x:Class="namespace.classname".../>
x:Name: Specifies a run-time object name for the instance that exists in run-time code after an object element is processed.
<object x:Name="XAMLNameValue".../>
x:Static: Enables a reference that returns a static value that is not otherwise a XAML-compatible property.
<object property="{x:Static prefix:typeName.staticMemberName}" .../>
x:Type: Constructs a Type reference based on a type name.
<object property="{x:Type prefix:typeNameValue}" .../>

This example shows you how to create a simple Binding.
In this example, you have a Person object with a string property named PersonName. The Person object is defined in the namespace called SDKSample.
The following example instantiates the Person object with a PersonName property value of Anil. This is done in the Resources section and assigned an x:Key.
<Window  xmlns=""
  xmlns:x=""  xmlns:ak="clr-namespace:SDKSample"
  Title="Simple Data Binding Sample">
    <ak:Person x:Key="myDataSource" PersonName="Anil"/>
   <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=PersonName, Source={StaticResource myDataSource}}"/>
As a result, the TextBlock appears with the value "Anil".
 </TextBlock >
