Windows Presentation Foundation is the .NET subsystem for building graphical interfaces. It’s replacement for WinForms that provides a wide range of features for 2D and 3D drawing, typography, animation, and data binding. Now that it’s integrated into Visual Studio 2008, you can easily build WPF applications with the tools you already use for your .NET development. Requiring no prior exposure to the subject, WPF in Action takes you smoothly from zero WPF knowledge to cruising speed. Following the crystalclear writing and practical C# examples, you’ll master XAML, WPF’s declarative language, and core components like layouts, styles, and the new event model. As the book progresses, you’ll tackle more sophisticated examples involving data caaess, custom controls, 3D, and animation.
