    Vista style Open/Save FileDialogs

    • 6 Comments
    If you have tried creating FileDialogs in WPF, they usually do not blend well into the Vista look. The solution is to use the wrappers provided in the VistaBridge library which is part of the SDK samples. You could include the library dll (around 100k) in your project and then make the simple call to CommonOpenFileDialog/CommonSaveFileDialog ... The other option being to just include the specific classes in the project. CommonSaveFileDialog saveDialog = new CommonSaveFileDialog (); Its that easy!! Share this post

    Updated WpfPerf.msi

    • 3 Comments
    I got a couple of mail regarding the performance tools... The good news is that the Windows SDK which was released a week ago has the updated WPF perf tools. WPFperf.msi comes as part of the SDK. You would have to uninstall previous versions of the msi before installing the updated version.
