source code, 725K
The WPF Toolkit is a collection of WPF features and components that are being made available outside of the normal .NET Framework ship cycle. The WPF Toolkit not only allows users to get new functionality more quickly, but allows an efficient means for giving feedback to the product team. Many of the features will be released with full source code as well. Over time, some of these features may be moved into the .NET Framework, based on readiness and customer feedback.
This is the January 2009 Release of the WPF Toolkit. The WPF Toolkit January 2009 Release includes:
- Fix for the VSM/DatePicker Memory Leak (see archived Known Issue page for more info)
- The same components as the October 2008 release, including:
- V1 of the WPF DataGrid
- V1 of the DatePicker/Calendar
- Preview of VisualStateManager (VSM)

Last night I finally started my first semi-real WPF project (which also happens to be my first TFS client/SDK project too… in for a penny and all that ;) and so will have a heighten focus on WPF related topics.
On a related note, boy do I feel behind the times. I’m feeling pretty humbled right now, trying to get up to speed on WPF. I mean, wow, I feel even more like lamer than usual… lol.
The good news is that my app runs at least. The bad news it that it is beyond fugly and not WPF’ee at all. Pretty much what you’d expect from a long time WinForm designer (and VB’er since v1 ;). Now to crack the books & blogs and INSERT INTO Greg.Brain SELECT * FROM World.WPF
