Join Josh Modglin for an in-depth discussion in this video Introduction to WPF, part of AutoCAD Add-ins Using VB.NET.
- [Instructor] As we begin our chapter…looking at creating a Windows interface…or a visual graphical interface.…And we really are going to be introduced…and use the WPF or Windows Presentation Foundation…built into the dot net framework to accomplish this.…Now many of you may be familiar with VVA…and VVA of course you would do Windows Forms…and you can see the Windows Forms in the back.…And you can create forms similar to that.…Windows Presentation Foundation allows us…to do a lot more in a lot less.…
And it also separates what we might consider…the business logic from the interface itself.…And so this is why we're really going to be focusing in…on the Windows Presentation Foundation…and just built in the exercise file…which in this case, I already have the solution opened.…I have two different files…and I created a folder in here under the Windows…where you have the form.…That's the old standard Windows form.…
