Currently I am trying to put together my brain around the XAML databinding in a structured manner (which means I get confused easily).  So as I work through the gaining of knowledge, the writers of the articles for Framework 4.0 Data Binding fell back that they thought that the SDKSample code would be easily found by the reader.  Well not this reader.

If you go to the Data Binding How-To Topics the articles seem to point to an example, the article doesn’t show all of the code, etc.  But there is no link.  After a bunch of searching, I did find code samples for Framework 3.5, and work well for many of the articles.  The title of the article do not do not map to the samples, but if you dig around a little (or wait till I compile the cross reference) you will find the XAML that matches the articles.

The articles are good for experienced developers and where written with brevity in mind, but the wider audience usually expanded on the articles, but to a point of complexity that doesn’t help the neophyte.

So here is the full list of the samples (but no cross reference between article and code samples, plus these only illustrate the Framework 3.5, no new features in Framework 4.0):
