Learn to create dramatic Windows user experiences using Windows Presentation Foundation and XAML. Learn the essentials of the framework as you build a complete sample app.
- [Instructor] Welcome to my Build Dramatic Desktop Applications with Windows Presentation Foundation course. Join me as I embark on a series to explore the Microsoft Windows Presentation Foundation. This remarkable tool is the best choice in the Microsoft tool set for creating rich, and powerful desktop applications. The course starts with an overview of WPF and XAML markup language. Then, I look at the default WPF template structure. Once the fundamentals are established, I build a sample application that showcases many of the interesting features available in WPF.
I'll look at UI layout and working with image assets. There is a section on using customer user controls, too. Next, I investigate data binding and data templates. Then, take a side-trip into styles and control templates. Finally, I explore cool concepts like 3D and UI effects. That's the topics for this course. I know you are ready to go. Let's do this.
- Recognize the pluses of choosing Windows Presentation Foundations over other Microsoft UI frameworks.
- Evaluate the different options available with Windows Presentation Foundation project types.
- Devise a Windows Presentation Foundation project in Visual Studio.
- Break down the assemblies and parts of Windows Presentation Foundations.
- Use XAML editor and editor settings.
