I'm creating this topic, not to flame about silverlight/wpf, but to get some ideas, why the property naming in Silverlight and probably WPF is different than in .net and WinForms.
I really like what Silverlight enables .net devs to quickly write web apps (relative to HTML+JS+CSS junk), but the naming just freaks me out.
IsEnabled when in Winforms you have Enabled.
HasCloseButton when in WinForms ControlBox / MaximumBox / MinimumBox
IsTabStop, TabIndex instead of TabStop, TabIndex. In Silverlight they are not bundled together. On WinForms they are next to each other on PropertyGrid.
Content / Header / Text/ instead of Text.
And Grid.Column / Grid.RowSpan / Grid. etc/ that really bugs me.
This really reminds me of good old VB6 days, when you had Caption / Text / Title on different controls.
Do you have any clue, why?
