The Microsoft Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) is a key part of .NET 4.0 and provides the foundation for building applications and high-quality user experiences in the Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. WPF blends together user-interface design, dynamic documents, and media content, while exploiting the full power of the user’s computing hardware.
This book explains how WPF works from the ground up. It will be one of the first books available, for the new .NET 4.0 version, and also one of the most detailed. It builds on the success of the author’s previous, industry leading, edition and plays to the same strengths – it is a one-stop shop in Apress’ proven ‘Pro’ style that leaves readers with a deep understanding of the technology and ready to take the concepts away and apply them for themselves.
