Today's toolkit time with the Extended WPF Toolkit

Yep, it's that time again, toolkit time. Today's toolkit is pure WPF. No XNA, no Windows Phone 7, no Silverlight, just WPF. Tongue Out

The Extended WPF Toolkit provides the kinds of controls that add polish to your applications and can save you hours (days?) of effort, all the while giving you the source to the controls too.

For example, have you ever needed to add a calculator to your app? Say as a drop down or embedded as a canvas?

Or a color picker/canvas?

Or Date/Time/DateTime?

"The Extended WPF Toolkit is a collection of WPF controls, components and utilities made available outside the normal WPF Toolkit. It includes controls that are missing from the WPF Toolkit, or that have been ported over from the Silverlight Toolkit. It also contains controls that I think are just nice to have.

Here's a snap of the Solution (which compiled and run for me with no issues...)

Another nice touch is that the binaries (and source) is available for .Net 3.5 and .Net 4. So no matter what framework version you're using for your WPF app, the bin's are there waiting for you.

Oh and finally, because I know what you're about to ask, yep, they are available via NuGet... Smiley
