Get a practical, scenario-based introduction to developing applications with WindowsÂ® Presentation Foundation-and deliver a richer, high-fidelity experience for users. Written by MicrosoftÂ® Software Legend Billy Hollis, this guide walks you through four scenarios that cover a broad spectrum of potential WindowsÂ® Presentation Foundation-based applications. You'll build your knowledge of WindowsÂ® Presentation Foundation features and capabilities by seeing them in the context of working, real-world applications, including:
1. A minimal shopping application hosted in a browser.
2. A typical ""forms-cover-data"" application that demonstrates the superior layout, adaptability, and interactive capabilities of WindowsÂ® Presentation Foundation.
3. A basic, ""skinnable"" media application that enables the user to mark over the media screen view.
4. A simple data visualization application that includes both 2-D flat presentation and 3-D presentation in a viewport.
By working through such pragmatic example, you'll get the guidance and insights you need to enrich the user experience and create visually stunning applications. Book also features extensive code samples in MicrosoftÂ® Visual BasicÂ® and Visual C#Â®.
