  • Blog Post: Closable Tabbed Views in Prism

    Prism regions make it easy to change the layout of views within an application. A region is a logical placeholder associated with a specific layout control.

  • Blog Post: Master-Detail With CollectionViewModel

  • Blog Post: The ViewModel Pattern

    The ViewModel pattern (more formally called the Model-View-ViewModel pattern, but that’s way too long winded and I’m lazy) is an increasingly popular pattern with WPF and Silverlight developers. This is largely due to its simplicity and flexibility and its inherent support in WPF and Silverlight...

We’re currently working on...
