Essential Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) (Microsoft .NET Development Series)

Buy
Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) replaces Microsoft's diverse presentation technologies with a unified, state-of-the-art platform for building rich applications. WPF combines the best of Windows and the Web; fully integrates user interfaces, documents, and media; and leverages the full power of XML-based declarative programming.

In Essential Windows Presentation Foundation, former WPF lead architect Chris Anderson systematically introduces this breakthrough platform, focusing on the concepts and techniques working developers need in order to build robust applications for real users. Drawing on his unique experience as team leader, Anderson thoroughly illuminates the crucial new concepts underlying WPF and reveals how its APIs work together to offer developers unprecedented value.

Through working sample code, you'll discover how WPF draws on the Web's simple models for markup and deployment, common frame for applications, and rich server connectivity, and on Windows' rich client model, simple programming model, strong control over look-and-feel, and rich networking. Topics explored in depth include

  • WPF components and architecture
  • Key WPF design decisions--and why they matter
  • XAML markup language
  • Controls
  • Layouts
  • Visuals and media, including 2D, 3D, video, and animation
  • Data integration
  • Actions
  • Styles
  • WPF Base Services

Essential Windows Presentation Foundation is the definitive, authoritative, code-centric WPF reference: everything Windows developers need to create a whole new generation of rich, graphical applications.
