Description:

Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) is a key component of WinFX, Microsoft's next-generation of APIs for application development on the Windows platform. All developers programming Windows-based apps will need to learn it. WPF gives developers the power to create compelling and low-maintenance Windows or Web applications like they never dreamed they could. Whether they want to integrate 3D graphics, video, speech recognition, animation, rich document support, or more, QPF enables them to do so in a seamliess manner. This book covers it all, in a practical and approachable manner. Adam Nathan is an insider on the WinFX team at Microsoft, and brings insights that only an insider can. Yet he doesn't shy away from showing the limitations of the current version of WPF, showing how to get past them using third party tools. The book is loaded with tips, warnings, FAQs, and "digging deeper" sidebars that provide unique insights into WPF.
