Introducing XAML The Art of Declarative Programming History goes on Visual Basic Forms Designer (recall .frm & .frx?) The “Windows Form Designer created code” Partial classes .NET revelatory programming model “eXtensible Application Markup Language” Namespace, Classes, Properties and Events mapping XAML is not WPF just WPF in XAML Integrated UI, Media, Documents in markup Enables engineer creator work process

Getting Started The photo that lets it know all Applications Controls Styling and Templates Layout Data Content Actions

Slide 18

Controls Talking about difficulties Controls are not adaptable Low adaptability to adjust controls to the developer’s and end-user’s visual needs. The “gray box” issue Your just customization focuses are the ones in the property program. No “pay for play” Advanced customization requires altogether more work (a.k.a. the “OwnerDraw” bad dream).

Slide 19

Controls WPF’s “realizing your potential” New controls fabricated for the stage, utilizing the stage Globalization, confinement, availability, eventing, and so on Controls that can contain anything .Content clarified Controls that have the look you need Layout, illustrations, visuals theming, and so forth

Slide 20

Controls .Content == new(.Text) Replacing .Text yet wealthier WPF C# Button.Content = “Hello World”; WPF XAML <Button>Hello World</Button> <Button><Image Source=“...”/></Button> An enhanced methodology for information myButton.Content = new Customer(...); You get back what you put in Developer manages information, originator manages the perception

Slide 21

Layout WPF’s Layout Toolbox Canvas The old (terrible) total situating StackPanel The most straightforward programmed design DockPanel Dock controls on top, left, right, base and fill Grid Partitions the UI in lines and sections TextFlow Present content in a (typographically) easy to use way

Slide 22

Controls Layout Styles

Slide 23

Databinding Binding in Markup <Image Source="truck.png" Canvas.Left= " {Binding Path=Value, ElementName=horzPos} "/> <Slider Orientation="Horizontal" Name="horzPos" Value="40"/> {Binding Path=Value, ElementName=horzPos}

Slide 24

Databinding Object Data Sources Connect UI to information objects E.g. business elements Add to asset word reference Named source objects <Window.Resources> component Use with asset tying Source “property” {StaticResource myData} <Window> <Window.Resources> <ObjectDataProvider x:Key="myData" TypeName="Foo"/> </Window.Resources> … </Window> <TextBlock TextContent=" "/> <TextBlock TextContent=" {Binding Path= , Source= } "/> <TextBlock TextContent=" {Binding Path= , Source= {StaticResource myData} } "/> <TextBlock TextContent=" {Binding Path=Bar, Source= {StaticResource myData} } "/>

Slide 25

cars.xml <Cars> <Car Make="Ford " Model="F-150"> <Image>truck.png</Image> </Car> … </Cars> Databinding Binding to XML is all over the place Built-in backing for XPath <Window> <Window.Resources> <XmlDataProvider x:Key="cars" XPath="/Cars/Car" Source="cars.xml"/> </Window.Resources> … </Window> <TextBlock TextContent=" {Binding XPath=@Make, Source= {StaticResource cars} } "/>

Slide 26

Binding controls Binding articles Binding XML

Slide 27

Databinding Controls Think Data ContentControl – solitary substance Button, CheckBox, Label, ListBoxItem, … ItemsControl – plural substance ListBox, ComboBox, Menu, TabControl, ToolBar, … Can utilize information objects as substance myButton.Content = new Car(…); myListBox.Items.Add(new Car(…)); Car c = (Car) myListBox.SelectedItem;

Slide 28

DataTemplate Databinding Defining Data Templates class Car { string Image {get;set;} string Model {get;set;} } <DataTemplate x:Key="carTemplate"> <Border BorderBrush="Blue" BorderThickness="2" Background="LightGray" Margin="10" Padding="15,15,15,5"> <StackPanel> <Image HorizontalAlignment="Center" Source=" {Binding Path=Image} "/> <Border HorizontalAlignment="Center" BorderBrush="Navy" Background="#DDF“ BorderThickness="1" Margin="10" Padding="3"> <TextBlock FontSize="18" TextContent=" {Binding Path=Model} "/> </Border> </StackPanel> </Border> </DataTemplate>

Slide 29

Databinding Using Data Templates Bind to a sort <Application … xmlns:src=“clr-namespace:MyNamespace”> <Application.Resources> <DataTemplate DataType=“{x:Type src:Car}” > … </DataTemplate> </Application.Resources> Bind unequivocally <Application.Resources> <DataTemplate x:Key=“cars” > … </DataTemplate> </Application.Resources> <ContentControl … ContentTemplate=“{StaticResource autos }”/>
