  • One of the first detailed books on WPF for .NET 3.5
  • Goes deep into the core of the technology in 800 pages of content-rich explanation
  • Written by Matthew MacDonald, author of two highly successful books on WPF's predecessor technology and with a proven track record of explaining breaking technologies clearly and precisely (c.f. Pro ASP.NET 3.5)

The Microsoft Windows Presentation Foundation is a key part of .NET 3.5 and provides the foundation for building applications and high-quality user experiences in Windows Vista. It is likely to see wide adoption across the Microsoft .NET programming community.

WPF blends together user-interface design, documents, and media content, while exploiting the full power of your computer for the first time (it is able to write output directly to your computers graphics card).

This book explains how WPF works from the ground up. It is one of the first books available on the topic, and is one of the most detailed. It follows on from the author’s previous, and highly successful books, covering Windows Forms (WPF's predecessor technology) and earlier versions of WPF. It provides a one-stop shop in Apress’ proven ‘Pro’ style that leaves readers with a deep understanding of the technology and able to take the concepts away and apply them for themselves.
