Pro WPF in C# 2010: Windows Presentation Foundation in .NET 4 by Matthew MacDonald

Microsoft's Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) provides the foundation for building applications and high-quality user experiences for the Windows operating system. It blends the application user interface, documents, and media content, while exploiting the full power of your computer's operating system.

Its functionality extends to the support for tablet PCs and other forms of input device, and it provides a more modern imaging and printing pipeline, accessibility and UI automation infrastructure, data-driven user interfaces and visualization, and integration points for weaving the application experience into the Windows shell.

This book shows you how WPF really works. It provides you with the no-nonsense, practical advice that you need in order to build high-quality WPF applications quickly and easily. After giving you a firm foundation, it goes on to explore the more advance aspects of WPF and how they relate to the others elements of the .NET 4.0 platform and associated technologies such as Silverlight.

What you’ll learn

  • WPF basics: XAML, layout, control essentials, and data flow
  • WPF applications: Navigation, commands, localization, and deployment
  • Advanced controls: Custom controls, menus, toolbars, and trees
  • WPF documents: Text layout, printing, and document packaging
  • Graphics and multimedia: Drawing shapes, sound and video, animation, geometric transformations, and imaging

Who this book is for

When a recent consulting gig was coming to an end, I decided to add some new skills to my toolbox, WPF being one of those. I picked a couple of books to read but this one was the one that allowed me to hit the ground running fastest and provided the most bang for my buck. .
