Adding a modern spark to your WPF apps, with WPFSpark
- Posted: Jan 06, 2016 at 6:00AM
Today's WPF Wednesday post is a revisit to a project from Ratish Philip that we highlighted nearly four years ago, Adding some spark to your next WPF project with WPFSpark, a project that's back and updated too.
WPFSpark will help you give your WPF application a much more modern feel...
At last, it's here! After a really long gap of nearly 4 years, I am happy to announce that the next version of WPFSpark is finally released. :)" align="top">
What's new in WPFSpark v1.2
In this section I will be providing a summary of new features and modifications made to the WPFSpark controls so that you can adapt your code quickly and integrate new features with ease. For WPFSpark v1.1, I had written several articles, explaining in detail, how each of the controls was designed and implemented. You can see those articles here (WPFSpark: M of N series). I intend to update these articles as soon as possible. For the time being, this article should bring you up to speed. All the code has been ported to .NET framework 4.6.1 using C# 6.0.
Using WPFSpark v1.2 in your code
WPFSpark v220.127.116.11 is available in NuGet. You can obtain it here. Alternatively, you can add it to your project from Visual Studio using the
Manage NuGet Packagesoption (Just right click on your project in the Solution Explorer and click on Manage NuGet Packages).
If you are interested in getting your hands dirty with code, you can access the WPFSpark source code in GitHub. I have moved the code from CodePlex to GitHub as I feel it is easier to manage your code in GitHub. Also the code is available under MIT License.
