    Merged resource dictionaries

    • 1 Comments
    One of my favorite new features in the September CTP is merged dictionaries -- you can use these to put resources in a separate file from the rest of your xaml. Nathan gives a great overview of this feature in http://www.designerslove.net/2005/09/resourcedictionaries...

    C++ and uncompiled xaml

    • 0 Comments
    You can't use C++ with compiled xaml in the same assembly. My preferred solution is to create a second assembly (C# and xaml), but another solution is to use uncompiled xaml (Parser.LoadXml). Here's what it would look like if my MFC demo used LoadXml...

    Random interop updates

    • 0 Comments
    Mike Henderlight, the WinForms-WPF interop guru, has started a blog: http://blogs.msdn.com/mhendersblog/ . At the PDC, Mike mentioned that WinForms-WPF interop won't be released in final form until the Visual Studio "Orcas" timeframe (sometime after...

    The PeterOst CTP

    • 0 Comments
    I'm really happy with this latest CTP, it took a lot of hard work and there's a lot of great features in there. But although most people will remember it as the PDC CTP, I'll always remember it as Peter Ostertag 's last CTP. Peter, longtime Avalon...

    Back from the PDC

    Got back in town last night and I'm still recovering, PDC was a lot of fun but it took a lot out of me. It was great to meet Drew and Bonk (I missed Michael -- wanted to go to his Extreme Avalon birds of the feather session, but I had to prepare for my...

    PDC schedule (repeat)

    • 0 Comments
    Weird, apparently this thing timestamps posts based on when you started a post rather than finished, which in this case was several days difference... So to make sure RSS doesn't miss anything: I'm in L.A. and ready for conference! Actually, I've been...

    Interop working set

    • 0 Comments
    So I promised awhile back to get some performance numbers on hwnd integration. I started with a very simple MFC application (which doesn't do a whole lot besides use MDI and document-view), and measured the working set of that. Then I recompiled using...

    My PDC schedule

    • 0 Comments
    I'm in L.A. and ready for conference! Actually, I've been in L.A. since Saturday, but I've been running around taking pictures most of that time. <g> But now I'm in conference mode. I got my slides done (well, mostly), my sessions picked out, and...

    Commands between WPF and MFC

    • 0 Comments
    When we created the WPF commanding system, we spent a lot of time looking at MFC. So it's not surprising that the two models integrate pretty well. One of the interesting parts of MFC is command routing -- the application as a whole has notions of commands...

    PDC is getting close!

    • 0 Comments
    So we're only five working days away from the PDC (at least in the U.S., Monday is a holiday) -- we are in the homestretch! I now have an official code for my presentation: PRS313 Windows Presentation Foundation ("Avalon"): Integrating with Your...
