Windows Presentation Foundation Unleashed - Review and Sample Chapter

| by Jonathan Allen Follow 553 Followers on Sep 27, 2007. Estimated reading time: less than one minute |

When looking for a book on WPF, one title kept coming up over and over again. Windows Presentation Foundation Unleashed by Adam Nathan has been leading the Amazon charts in positive reviews, so we thought we would take it for a spin. Turns out, the book lives up to the hype.

In addition to our review, InfoQ was able to obtain not only a sample chapter, but also probably the most important chapter of the book.
Chapter 3 includes coverage of WPF's property and event system, a system that is unlike anything else on the Windows platform.

Great! by John DeHope

I'm reading and enjoying this. I've been kind of avoiding WPF because I don't want to learn yet *another* presentation framework. But I have time for a chapter at least. Thanks guys.

Re: Great! by Jonathan Allen

It makes me feel good to hear that. Those long reviews are a lot of work and it is hard to tell if people are bothering to read them, let alone finding them useful.

If there are any other topics or books you want us to look into, feel free to let us know.

Bought It by John DeHope

I picked up the dead tree book at B&K. What sold me on it wasn't so much what folks think of when they think WPF. Sure the layout and control infrastructure is a great and modern API. I really was drawn in to the application and commands architecture, navigation, and deployment. I think these areas are going to make my next app really shine. Oh and it'll have bling too :)
