  • Blog Post: What is Rich Data Visualization Anyways?

    One of the things you hear over and over again with WPF is the ability to do Rich Data Visualization. It has always made me cringe, as it always seems like to fit into that category you need a 3D rotating panda, or some sort of alien chart form that would make Edward Tufte cringe. The other day...

  • Blog Post: More on "Avalon" RichTextBox

    As promised , I learned more so I'm sharing. Last time I figured out how to stuff plain text into the RichTextBox, but that's not very "rich", is it? How do I put RTF (rich text format) into a RichTextBox? It turns out the support for this seems to be through the TextRange class. TextRange offers...

    I’ve been playing around with the RichTextBox, and as Richard points out, the free spell checking on WPF TextBoxes is really cool – especially for the “spelling challenged” such as myself. The programming model for the WPF RichTextBox is quite a bit richer than the Windows Forms wrapper around...
