One of the many samples released for Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 that you should be aware of are examples of WPF data binding against Entity Data Models. You can find some easy to follow samples here: http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/WPFDatabinding
This sample demonstrates how to create a WPF Forms solution that checks user input with validation code, demonstrates common controls such as DataGrid and ComboBox, and shows typical data manipulation including create, read, update, and delete. The sample solution is available in both Visual Basic and C# and is intended for use with Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 and with the .NET Framework 3.5. In the future, we will release a sample that performs with the .Net Framework 4.0 Beta.
Check out the VS Data Team blog for more information on WPF data-binding and Karl’s blog on a great WPF sample series.
