Two classes inherit from DataSourceProvider. XmlDataProvider and ObjectDataProvider. ObjectDataProvider wraps an object and allows you to bind (more…)
In many applications you want to fill up a ListView or a GridView with some data. In WPF applications you set the View-Property of the ListView to a GridView to show the data nicely in columns. In most cases you have an entity class (think of it as a "real" entity class or a DataRow as part of a DataTable), and objects (more…)
- Visual Studio 2008 and .NET 3.5 will be available to MSDN subscribers by the end of November
- The first CTP of Microsofts Sync Framework is available now
- For those of you using Microsoft Popfly, a new Popfly Explorer will be available
- This year there will already be a CTP of the next Version of Visual Studio, called "Rosario". In 2008 there will be a Beta of it
- If you have .NET 3.0 already installed, an installation of .NET 3.5 will use this existing installation and change the red bit assemblies (some existing .NET 3.0 assemblies) and add some brand new Assemblies (the green bits). That means, after the installation of .NET 3.5 you wont come back to .NET 3.0, but every .NET 3.0 application should run well on .NET 3.5 (if Microsoft has done a good job with the red bits)
- If you haven't .NET 3.0 installed, an installation of .NET 3.5 will install whole .NET 3.0, plus the red and green bits of .NET 3.5
Today I decided to start my own blog. So far I enjoyed life just as a blog-reader for the last couple of years. But now there are several reasons to start my own blog:
- Up to now I just played around with WPF for nearly two years, and I discovered some things I want to share with you
- I want to post some technical content to find it later again. Also the provider guarantees me a backup of my site. :-)
- A blog is a great platform to communicate with you and other guys working with .NET, WPF, XAML, C#, LINQ, ...
During the next days I'll provide some stuff just heared and learned from TechEd 2007 in Barcelona.
So stay tuned...
