- WPF DataPanelBase: Rockford Lhotka discusses whether several classes he exposes in CSLA.Net should subclass from Panel or Decorator. This sounds like many debates we had over the years with WPF. We generally ended up with an explicit model…most things that added a bit of functionality (ScrollViewer, Border, Expander, etc…) were decorators or content controls and you needed to choose an explicit panel inside of them based on your layout needs. Page/Window only have one child, generally a panel.
