WPF 4 Unleashed Book Review
|This book is a pure pleasure to read. It is in full color, the content is laid out in an easy to read style, the author's writing style makes it easy to read, and the content is all valuable. There is no fluff like you find in a lot of the books written today.|
There are a lot of new enhancements in WPF 4 and this book covers them thoroughly. They include multi-touch support, easing animation functions, and new controls such as DataGrid, Calendar, and DatePicker.
The book starts out with an awesome chapter on XAML, and then moves on to a very thorough treatment of everything WPF. It covers everything and covers it in depth.
You won’t find much on networking. There is a small sample but the book is all about the client. That is not a bad thing, just wanted to mention it.
The code samples are well organized and very usable.
All in all this book is great for the beginner and the experienced WPF developer. If you are considering getting into WPF, this is the book to start with.
