Building Outlook 2007 UI clone in WPF

June 13, 2007

Microsofties Ronnie Saurenmann (of Zurich Airport application fame) and Runihua Jin (an intern) built a hands-on-lab that takes you through the process of using Expression Blend to design Outlook 2007 like UI.  I believe Ronnie had started working on doing the Outlook UI while he was working with the WPF team for a 6 week stint earlier this year.

Now, you can try out the xbap, read the hands-on-lab manual, or look at the source.

Love it!

    Hi Rob, perhaps not the best place to bring this up, but do you have any idea why the WebBrowser windows forms control hosted in this sample flickers on resize? I\’m seeing this problem on a (non-xbap) project I\’m working on, and can\’t seem to work around it. It looks like the WebBrowser ActiveX control itself is having redraw problems…

    Please post this issue on the wpf forum: and reply back with the URL, and I\’ll make sure the right people see it.
    THanks, Rob

    Thanks Rob! I\’ve posted it to the forum, and the url is:
    Sorry if that seemed like a random comment/cry for help – I just noticed that the xbap also has a flickering WebBrowser control for the content, and it prompted me to ask. It was related to the post – but I should have mentioned that in my original comment!
    Incidentally, this has been reported on the forums by others, too:
