Windows Presentation Foundation will make it significantly easier to create state-of-the-art user interfaces for your Windows .NET applications. This book smoothes out WPF's non-trivial learning curve. It combines a solid introduction to core concepts with practical guidance on actually exploiting the technology.
WPF's meat-and-potatoes features are covered in exceptional detail: controls, layout, resources, binding, styling, graphics, animation, you name it. Want to use some of Microsoft's innovative Office 2007-like interface elements? Use slick collapsible/dockable panes? Create "declarative" UIs that are simple to restyle? Build interfaces that encompass speech or multimedia? Construct "navigation-based" applications? The authors walk you through all that, and more.
By the way, unlike older books in the Unleashed series, this one's in full color. That's more valuable than you might expect in a programming book. For example, its myriad code samples are color-coded to match what you'll see in Visual Studio. Nifty. Bill Camarda, from the February 2007 Read Only
