About this book


Microsoft Windows Presentation Foundation provides the foundation for building applications and high–quality user experiences in Windows Vista. WPF blends application user interface, documents, and media content to provide richer control, design, and development of the visual aspects of Windows programs.

Author Matthew MacDonald shows you how WPF really works. His no–nonsense, practical advice will get you building high–quality WPF applications quickly and easily. MacDonald will take you through a thorough investigation of the more advanced aspects of WPF, and its relation to other elements of the WinFX stack and the .NET Framework 3.5, to complete your understanding of WPF and VB 2008.

WPF's functionality extends to support for tablet PCs and other forms of input device, and provides a more modern imaging and printing pipeline, accessibility and user interface automation infrastructure, data–driven user interface and visualization, as well as the integration points for weaving the application experience into the Windows shell.
