User Interfaces in WPF

Description

This is the fourth in a series of shows featuring speakers from the VSLive conference, which was held in Redmond in August. In this episode, Robert is joined by Phil Japikse to discuss UI in Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and see examples of natural user interfaces, fluid layouts and other things you can do in XAML to make apps more user friendly.

Thanks to Phil for this exhaustive list of WPF resources:

    Thanks for the video ! Always nice to see WPF get some love :)

    When will some sample code become available ? Particularly interesting in the first demo with the animated drag/drop.

    The screencast overlay on video shooting was semi-transparent. Every time it was closed the dark shadow outlines from both of you became apparent. (6)

    Every awesome demo shared holds for native GUI apps( XAML/ DirectX) too, as the WPF coding was reserved for another video.

    @VSChawathe: Can you point out an example or two of this? What times in the video do you see this?

    Is there any sample code planned for this? Another +1 for the fluid layout demo.

    I hope you get him back for a code-dive. Great to start seeing some WPF content back on here, please keep it coming...

    @rogreen: I viewed the mid quality mp4 available to download. Now that I've noticed it once, its harder to pinpoint when it stood out in the first place, as then onward I remained conscious of its presence throughout.. Maybe some trial software left behind some codec on my laptop, or its just my contrast setting, I really haven't checked on another monitor.

    You may want to examine 6:45 into the video when you say "So one question before we move on is this type of stuff .." when you, my guess is, momentarily shift gaze to switch from the screencast.

    Can't find the download for Marsbound.

    Would love to study it some more.

    Also noticed the shadows in the background, was nice 'feature' because you could see the arms waving and not just the white of the form.

    Greate stuff. I would also love to get the source code of fluid layout example.
