Some blog post links…
- Don Burnett writes an interesting piece discussing WPF/E: what it is, what it should be, etc…: Poor maligned, and misunderstood by many: WPF/E He likes that we’ve kept it simple…
Testing WPF Apps
- "Unit Testing WPF controls with Automation Peers" may be worth a read…and perhaps commenting with your experiences.
- I like to see the code sharing going on in the WPF community. I’ve often thought about how to make publishing a WPF apps source code more automatic (if the developer desired). We’ll see where that goes in the future.
- Mat says: Some bits of WPF are really really nice, and other bits just seem really really impossible!
We want to know which bits are impossible! Please give us detailed feedback.
- XamlForMorons.com has published an XML creator to help visualize databinding and an update. Seems like Matthias has some other good content as well.
- Karl Hume discusses how to represent information such as how VS uses "*" to indicate a file is unsaved.
Single Instance WPF Apps, Screen Saver disabling and Power Management
- Tamir Khason gives his steps.
- DonnysDelectables asks for the WPF Designer on VS2005. Would love to know what is wrong with using the Orcas CTP right now…it would slow down the Cider team to have to deliver a less than perfect solution for VS2005 while they strive for the best possible solution in Orcas. The nice thing about working in Orcas is that they can work to get changes done to msbuild, the project system, write a new xaml intellisense engine, etc… That said, I want to hear what people think…
- compilewith.net says that Blend is contagious and wants it with MSDN.
- MyWebTop similarly raves about Blend.
- Auxiliary Memory writes a thoughtful piece about "Rediscovering the Page". He likes Times Reader experiences and would like to see more of them. He mentions that PDF documents in Landscape mode are better than the web also…let him know what you think.
- Never heard of Sandcastle before, they mentioned xaml, so I found it…March 2007 SandCastle CTP: Documentation compilers for managed class libraries
