It blends together rich content from a wide range of sources and allows you unparalleled access to the processing power of your Windows computer.

Pro WPF 4.5 in VB provides a thorough, authoritative guide to how WPF really works. Packed with no-nonsense examples and practical advice you'll learn everything you need to know in order to use WPF in a professional setting. The book begins by building a firm foundation of elementary concepts, using your existing VB skills as a frame of reference, before moving on to discuss advanced concepts and demonstrate them in a hands-on way that emphasizes the time and effort savings that can be gained.

What you’ll learn

  • Understand the fundamentals of WPF programming from XAML to controls and data flow.
  • Develop realistic application scenarios to see navigation, localization and deployment in action.
  • Explore the advanced user interface controls that WPF provides.
