    Difference between Figures and Floaters!!

    • 1 Comments
    A Figure is very similar to Floaters but for the following differences Figure can be positioned relative to the page to which it is anchored (e.g. positioned at the bottom of the page); Floater is always positioned parallel to the main flow Figure can span across multiple columns; Floater is constrained to a single column So in that sense, we could say that Figure and Floaters complement one another. Now lets have a look at how it looks like: The Xaml code for the above looks like this: <FlowDocument xmlns=" http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/avalon/2005 " xmlns:x=" http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/xaml/2005 " TextAlignment="Left"> <Paragraph> Hundreds of video game fans waited in line in chilly weather across...

    Got Floaters?

    An interesting feature to display content is the use of Floaters and Figures. Today, I'll be discussing about floaters. So the first question that comes to mind if you are not very familiar with Office terminology is - What is it? - Floaters display information in a flow parrallel to the main content. Floaters are allowed only within a FlowDocument or a TextFlow tree. So it can have the same cotent that a RichTextBox has. A common scenario for using floaters would be to have an image displayed next to some text. This would be something like a news page that we see online. As seen above, this looks pretty kewl...

    Binding Data!!

    • 0 Comments
    Been some time before I looked up my blog. I was working on some data binding and would like to show some of it. Here I will be showing how we can bind data. I will not be pasting the complete code as it will just eat up a lot of estate. However, not to worry, I will be showing the main parts ..:) I tried creating a game player setting screen which looks pretty neat. Lets begin with the code. I created an avalon Web Browser app again using the available templates. The main screen is designed in the Page1.xaml file and the GamePlayerSettingWindow is designed in the Window1.xaml file which is added to the project. Page1.xaml <? Mapping XmlNamespace="CodeMapNS" ClrNamespace="PlayerSettings" ?> //this specifies the naespace...
