  • Why Use WPF?

    Magazine/Issue: CoDe Magazine, 2009 Nov/Dec
    Release Date: Friday, October 23, 2009
    Quick ID: 0911031
    If you have not taken a look at Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) yet, you really should. WPF is a great desktop development platform. Granted, all of the tools are not yet in place, but Microsoft is pouring millions of dollars into developing WPF tools. Microsoft now considers Windows Forms a legacy technology and they won’t update it within Visual Studio. These two reasons alone should be enough to convince you that need to start learning WPF right now.While WPF offers a new set of development tools, you’ll see a lot that looks familiar. You still have the typical desktop controls like text boxes, check boxes, radio buttons, etc. You still write the same C# or Visual Basic code. The major difference is how you layout the screens, control the look and feel of the controls, and some of the properties are a little different. This article will give you a good introduction to what WPF is all about without diving too deep.

    Quick ID: 0907051
    WPF is finally gaining momentum, and so is Silverlight.Users are starting to take a serious look at Silverlight as an option for rich applications; some of them even have scenarios where targeting both platforms make sense.

  • INotifyPropertyChanged Is Obsolete

    Magazine/Issue: CoDe Magazine, 2009 Jul/Aug
    Release Date: Friday, June 26, 2009
    Quick ID: 0907101
    The INotifyPropertyChanged interface, while easy to implement, is hard to consume.Registering for notification events requires extra bookkeeping code that obfuscates business logic. Update Controls is an open source library that replaces event-based data binding with automatic discovery and updating. Powerful yet difficult patterns become simple.

  • Dressing Up Your Data with WPF DataTemplates

    Magazine/Issue: CoDe Magazine, 2009 Jul/Aug
    Release Date: Friday, June 26, 2009
    Quick ID: 0907111
    It’s becoming less and less common to show raw data directly to the user.At the very least, portions of your data may require reformatting to make it more readable for your users. But applying a simple format, say showing a numeric value as a percentage, only goes so far. WPF offers an impressive data transformation tool called Data Templates that can radically change the visualization applied to business data.

    Release Date: Tuesday, October 28, 2008
    Quick ID: 0810102
    As is often the case, applications are not typically designed with accessibility in mind.Usually, applications are designed to satisfy business requirements. If those business requirements do not include accessibility, more likely than not, the application as a whole will be inaccessible to important segments of users. There are, however, steps you can take to mitigate this common lack of foresight in requirements analysis.

  • Build Composite WPF Applications

    Magazine/Issue: CoDe Magazine, 2008 Nov/Dec
    Release Date: Friday, October 24, 2008
    Quick ID: 0811041
    When you build complex UI applications, it is all too easy to end up with a messy, tightly coupled, interwoven mess that is difficult to develop and maintain; and impossible to test.Too avoid that, you need to employ good design patterns in your UI layer that help you keep things loosely-coupled and testable. Composite Application Guidance for WPF is a set of libraries, documentation, and sample code from Microsoft patterns & practices that helps you to build clean, maintainable applications. In this article, I’ll show you what this set of guidance provides and how to use it to build your WPF applications.

    Quick ID: 070143
    At Mix 2007 in Las Vegas, Microsoft announced Silverlight (formerly known as WPF/E) to much fanfare. Silverlight is very intriguing in concept, as it further travels the path previously laid out by WPF (Silverlight’s big brother), and it aims to bring the worlds of Windows and Web development, as well as the worlds of software development and graphical design, much closer together. As more and more details emerge (and the first released version is now available), it becomes clear that Silverlight is not just an intriguing concept, but it is for real! Markus discusses Silverlight concepts in this article.
