Windows Presentation Foundation. Windows Presentation Foundation (or WPF) is a graphical subsystem for rendering user interfaces in Windows-based applications by Microsoft.

Windows Presentation Foundation

WPF, previously known as "Avalon", was initially released as part of .NET Framework 3.0. Rather than relying on the older GDI subsystem, WPF uses DirectX. WPF attempts to provide a consistent programming model for building applications and separates the user interface from business logic. It resembles similar XML-oriented object models, such as those implemented in XUL and SVG. WPF employs XAML, an XML-based language, to define and link various interface elements.[1] WPF applications can also be deployed as standalone desktop programs, or hosted as an embedded object in a website. WPF runtime libraries are included with all versions of Microsoft Windows since Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.

I have just published a new article which shows a new control that I have made.

WPF : Weird 3D Level Tree Like Control

When I created this control, these were the requirements I had for the control. Supports transparency in 3dCould panCould zoomSupported some of tree like data structure in 3d space I am pretty pleased with it overall, you can read more about the control over at codeproject : Like this: Like Loading... HierarchicalDataTemplate and TreeView - David Sackstein. This post is about flexible styling for databound TreeViews in WPF.

HierarchicalDataTemplate and TreeView - David Sackstein

We will see how nested trees of any depth and structure can be bound easily with the HierarchicalDataTemplate. In the next posts I will demonstrate use of the Composite Pattern to describe the hierarchical data and LINQ to XML to read the data from an XML file. Finally, I will put all the pieces together in an application that displays a trivial organization chart. We will start with a set of classes that all have Composite as their base class.

Composite might be defined like so: class Composite public string Name { get; set; } public List<Composite> Children { get; set; } Here is method that builds some sample data: private List<Composite> GetData() List<Composite> list = new List<Composite>() new Composite { Name = "1", Children = new List<Composite>() new Composite { Name = "1.1", Children = new List<Composite>() new Composite { Name = "1.1.1" }, new Composite { Name = "1.1.2" }, new Composite { Name = "1.1.3" } return list; AvalonControlsLibrary.

Introducing FluidKit – A WPF Library of Controls, Helpers and the likes… Over the past couple of months I have developed a bunch of custom controls and utility classes, which people have found useful.

Introducing FluidKit – A WPF Library of Controls, Helpers and the likes…

However all of these were released independently, had differing namespaces and lacked a common point of download. Well, not anymore ! I have launched a new CodePlex project called FluidKitthat aims to tie in all my work under a common library. All future custom controls and WPF goodies will be added to this library. As of today the following items are part of the library: Custom Controls, Panels GlassWindow ( Part 1, Part 2 )BalloonDecorator ( Part 1, Part 2 )ItemSkimmingPanel + SkimmingContextAdornerImageButton ( part of the GlassWindow control ) Helpers DragDropManager ( Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6 )PennerDoubleAnimation + PennerInterpolator This was derived from a Google Code project: wpf-animation.

[Note: I will also be adding the ElementFlow control and others to the library.] At this time, it is in a source-only form with a BSD license. WPF Dialogs. XAML Power Toys « Karl On WPF – .Net. Silverlight & WPF Timeline Control. WPF Tutorial.
