Our friends from Max have been
busy.

Not only are they cranking away at a beautiful WinFX app, but they’re taking
time to blog about their adventures.

Ben has blogged about IScrollInfo
[Part 1,
Part 2,

If you are making your own panel and want a ScrollViewer to party over it, start
here.

Dan is blogging about creating a
virtualized panel (for putting lots of data in a list). [Part

,
Part 2
,
Part 3]

If you haven’t heard,
IE7 is beautiful. One of my
first blog
posts
was about Mozilla 1.5. About the same time the IE team was getting
rolling again. They have done some amazing work.

Today Bea,
Namita, and I met with some folks
from the VB team to chat
about integrating their

new language features
with WPF data binding. Wow! I know there are some C#
guys out there laughing at VB. Guys and gals:
download the demo. You
may soon forget your love of semicolons. Mmm…XML inline with code…*drool*.
(Oh, and check out Bea’s post on doing

grouping with ItemsControl
. Very cool.)

Have you been reading about

InfoCard
? You should be. Kim is
your man. Check out his blog.

On a personal note, I’ve been having fun updating the

Bag-O-Tricks
for our next public release. I stayed up late on Valentines Day
hacking away as a Valentines gift to you, my loyal readers. I’ve added some new
things that I’ve been asked about. I’ve also put all of the controls in an
external library which includes default styles. This is for control authors that
want to ship a control with its template in a single library.

Also, the team that built the WPF ListView has a bunch of samples that they
should be posting very soon. People have been asking about a TreeView with
columns. Let’s just say the power of WPF composition will blow you away.

Stay tuned.
