  • Blog Post: Books on WPF

    Mehrdad is looking for some WPF books. I know of two: Programming Windows Presentation Foundation XAML in a Nutshell ...and of course, Chris Anderson is busy working on his book. I expect that once Beta2 hits the road, we'll see a lot more books on WPF and WinFX. I can't wait...
  • Blog Post: Do you subclass ItemsControl? Keep reading.

    ItemsControl has a protected virtual GetContainerForItemOverride that takes an object parameter. In all in-box WPF controls, this parameter is ignored and a cookie-cutter container is returned. While it’s currently possible for control authors to change the container they return depending on the...
  • Blog Post: TreeListView - Scary Cool Control Mash-up in WPF

    As promised, the ATC team has posted another ListView sample . This sample is amazing because it doesn’t involve ListView at all. Instead, it uses the primitives we designed for ListView--namely GridViewColumn and GridViewRowPresenter. The code required here is amazingly small for the flexibility of...
  • Blog Post: WPF ListView Rocks!

    No control in our library demonstrates the power of WPF more than ListView. It is the example of how element composition can be leveraged to make amazingly beautiful and amazingly flexible experiences. Check out the inaugural post from our friends in the Advanced Technology Center in Beijing. I've...

  • Blog Post: Robby and Me on Channel 9

    We're not nearly as entertaining as Don and Chris , but Robby and I are in another video on Channel 9 (our last one was on MSDN TV ). This time we talk about our experiences with Windows programming, the web and the power/flexibility/extensibility of WPF. It was a fun conversation. Robby is giving...

  • Blog Post: Read Bea's Blog

    I think at some point I mentioned I've moved over to work on Data Binding in WPF. Binding is a thick, but powerful subject in WPF. One of the testers on my team is blogging (and she's hiding outside MSDN blogs). Beatriz is amazing to work with. Her blog is also very helpful. Send her a message...
  • Blog Post: An update to the WinFX Bag-O-Tricks for the January CTP

    As you may already know, there aren't really any changes to Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) in the January CTP . I have noticed some updates to the VS extensions for Visual Studio , so you may want to update your bits anyway. I received a bunch of suggestions for samples , but nothing that...
  • Blog Post: Windows Live Messenger Beta Invite for WPF Sample Suggestion: wanna trade?

    I have one Messenger Beta invite to give out and I'm always looking for WPF sample suggestions. So... I have no strict criteria. The first suggestion that makes me think "hmm, that looks interesting" wins. Tips: if it's trivially simple or insanely complicated, you probably won't get it. Take a look...
  • Blog Post: A WinFX Bag-O-Tricks

    It's been pretty quiet around the office this week. I've had a chance to do some updating and clean-up on a bunch of samples that I've created over the last several months. I've decided to roll up all of my samples into one application. This will make it much easier to roll changes forward as we make...

  • Blog Post: WinFX Hex

    I discovered the game Hex when I spent a semester in Australia my senior year of college. Taking the things I learned building Minesweeper , I thought I'd see how far I could get with Hex. I'm pretty happy with the results. (As with my first post of Minesweeper, this is a work in progress.) I had...
