A typical “forms-over-data” application that demonstrates the superior layout, adaptability, and interactive capabilities of Windows Presentation Foundation3. A basic, “skinnable” media application that enables the user to mark over the media screen view4. A simple data visualization application that includes both 2-D flat presentation and 3-D presentation in a viewportBy working through each pragmatic example, you’ll get the guidance and insights you need to enrich the user experience and create visually stunning applications.
