time to blog about their adventures.
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

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.
