Foundations of Wpf: An Introduction to Windows Presentation Foundation Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Windows Presentation Foundations (WPF), formerly code-named Avalon, is part of a suite of new technologies collectively known as 'The WinFX stack'. This suite, coupled with new ancillary technologies such as XAML and LINQ provides a powerful addition to the .NET 2.0 Framework for creating applications for Windows Vista, and WinFX-enabled Windows XP computers. These technologies have been eagerly awaited, and demand for them is going to be very high within the Windows programming community.
This book deals specifically with WPF, and explains to readers what it is, how it can be used and how it fits into the wider picture of new WinFX technologies. Readers are quickly brought up to speed with the new coding techniques and processes they need for successful WPF coding, before being given a thorough practical grounding in how the technologies can be used. By the end of the book readers will be able to start creating WPF-enabled applications for themselves.

Book News Annotation:

This introduction to WPF shows how to build a simple application using Expression Interactive Designer and the same application using Visual Studio 2005 that ties the XAML-based design to a live back end. The author describes the various layout and XAML controls, the graphics APIs, animation types, the basic of 3D programming, and the deployment of WinFX applications.

Synopsis:

Windows Presentation Foundation is a cutting-edge presentation framework for creating high-fidelity applications for Windows Vista and Windows XP. WPF is a composite technology with a noteworthy graphics engine that gives you more control over your applications screen output than has ever been possible in Windows before. New control frameworks and a new XML-based markup language, XAML, complete the core WPF package. On top of this, WPF can be linked to the new Microsoft Expression Suite to simplify the creation of your user interfaces, and it can be linked to .NET 2.0 to handle complex business logic.

Foundations of WPF: An Introduction to Windows Presentation Foundation teaches you everything you need to get started with the technology, and is broken into three parts. The first introduces and contextualizes the WPF technology; the second part dives deeper into the facets of the technology that are of immediate and valuable use in developing applications; the last part offers you the real-world perspective you need to be productive in the community and customer base. In summary, this book: Explains how WPF interoperates with myriad new ancillary and support technologies being released by Microsoft (XAML, WCF, WinFX, and the Expression Design Suite) Gets you up and running, building applications for the new Windows ?Vista? as quickly as possible Separates design and implementation to make life easier from a business and development perspective
