RSS Postit Application

Well, this is my second day of being a blogger, and I am well chuffed with the traffic coming onto the blog. So chuffed in fact, I have uploaded a little sample I made a while back for you all to enjoy…

I made this when I first started playing around with DataTemplates in ItemsControls. I was so amazed at how flexible the DataTemplate was, this Postit sample doesn’t even scratch the surface. I could have put the data items onto anything!

In this, you can also drag the postits around, and when you click on a link, it takes you off to the web page. Whoopee! But in all seriousness, this is simply to demo how simple it is to make a simple data template… very!

I have attached the source code so you can add your own feed / improve upon it. NOTE: This is not a proper example on how to data bind… that will be coming later 🙂 But if you make any significant changes, it would be great to see them. So, let us all know.

Til tomorrow.


P.S This was built with Beta 2 of WinFX, as will all of my project be. Most should work on previous bits, but you may need to change a line here or there.

    Hmmm… a suggestion on my own app, and I don’t know why I didn’t think of it before… having different RSS feeds on different colour post-it notes. Simple and Brilliant!

    Very nice!

    Also great that you’re publishing what you discover as you go.

    One of the biggest problems working with WPF is the fact that the community and online resources are not really established yet, so I think the blog is a really good idea.

  3. Ok, so one of the things I hope to achieve with this blog is to share all of the little gems that I come…

    Thanks Oli, and I totally agree. It is great to see so many people blogging about WPF. This is one the most significant advances in UI technology in 20 years +.

    This blog is all about sharing ideas, concepts, and CODE. I want to demonstrate how easy it is to do real stuff in WPF.
