Overview

WPF offers amazing new opportunities to .NET programmers in terms of the user interfaces they can deliver to their customers. But this significant technological advance comes with a steep learning curve, requiring the programmer to learn new classes, new syntax, and an entirely new approach to UI development.

Although WPF has been generally available for over a year, commercial take-up has been relatively slow, and the publicly available body of knowledge has been weak in terms of real-world examples and best-practice information.

Using WPF Recipes in C# 2008, you'll find a simple and straightforward approach to solving the problems you face every day. Each solution contains a complete, working example that demonstrates how to make the best use of WPF. You can use the example as a template to solve your own problem or as a base on which to build a solution tailored to your specific needs.

Packed with well-structured and documented solutions to a broad range of common WPF problems, this book, which presents the only WPF recipes currently published, will be a valuable addition to any C# programmer's reference library. Examples included provide you with a rich source of information as you begin to learn and will be an invaluable quick-reference guide once you're a proficient WPF programmer.

The emphasis on solving the day-to-day WPF problems that all programmers face frees you from needing to trawl through weighty programming tomes or sift through API documentation, allowing you to focus on the more interesting and innovative aspects of your project.

This book has good and practical examples with complete code (not just snippets).  It is easy to read, well organized and guides you from problem to solution to explanation to code for every recipe.

This book is surprisingly useful with real examples not just snippets of "demo" type code.  I have cut and pasted examples with no modification.  Highly recommended for anyone doing a real application in WPF
