WPF is not the only Microsoft Windows development framework. This tutorial compares the benefits of the three frameworks, Windows Forms, WPF and Universal Windows Applications.
- [Instructor] Microsoft has a number of frameworks…for building Windows applications.…In this demonstration,…I'll look at three of the most popular…that Microsoft has created…and that would be WinForms, or Windows Forms,…WPF, and Universal Windows applications.…I've got examples of all three of them inside this solution,…so this is my WinForm example.…Here's my WPF example.…And both of these two projects are using some code…that's in this TourLib,…and then this PhotoSharingApp Universal…is a sample application from Microsoft.…
This is my Universal Windows application,…and it's using some code…in this portable class library here.…So the first thing I want to do is…I want to show you the WPF…and the Windows Forms application running side by side.…To do that, I'll go to my Solution,…Set StartUp Projects,…switch to Multiple startup projects,…and then choose Start in this dropdown…for these two examples.…And I'll go to the Debug menu and Start Debugging.…
The window on the left is the WinForm.…The window on the right is WPF.…
