is up and running

The new Windows Client site is now available.

Here's what the site has to say for itself:

Welcome to, the community learning resource for Windows Forms and Windows Presentation Foundation.

This site focuses on all aspects of rich client development on Windows using the .NET Framework. New content from both the Microsoft product teams and from the community will be added regularly to highlight the many user experience and developer productivity benefits of rich client applications on Windows.

This is the place to look for WPF code samples and finished controls: Controls gallery. It's also the place to submit your own content to the community. There's a lot of great stuff there now, and I expect we'll have a lot more in the near future.

Content from has been migrated, and from what I hear, that site will be retired at some point.

To whet your appetite, here's one of the sample controls, Selector3d:

    hey jim, i’m getting "The name "Selector3D" does not exist in the namespace "clr-namespace:Ricciolo.Controls;assembly=Ricciolo.Selector3D,………."  so I can’t customize it on Blend, if I build it runs fine, but if I try to add a reference to Selector3D.csproj in my project (a wine browser, with categorys and detail pages) so I want to turn the cube when switching pages, but I’m missing something ..

    Hi Rod,

    I just tried building the project on Whidbey w/ Fidalgo, and it built and ran okay. Can you describe your scenario more fully?

    Off the top of my head, I’m wondering if that xmlns declaration specifies the wrong version of the Selector3D assembly. You may have rebuilt the Selector3D assembly a few times and inadvertently rev’d the version.
