Overview

The Windows Presentation Foundation is Microsoft’s attempt to give a framework for building graphic rich Windows applications. WPF is part of the .NET framework 3.0 and higher.

It combines application UIs, 2D graphics, 3D graphics, documents and multimedia into one single framework. Its vector based rendering engine uses hardware acceleration making the UI faster, scalable and resolution independent.

WPF has an Extensible Application Mark-up Language (XAML). WPF applications can be created using only code or a combination of code and XAML pages.

Other features of WPF are:

  • Separation of Appearance and Behavior
  • Rich composition
  • Highly customizable
  • Resolution independence

WPF is great at making graphically engaging applications with simpler code. Being resolution independent is a great advantage in the tablet era. As such there would be great demand for making applications for new OSs coming in the market which are made for touchscreens.

As already established, WPF is a complex technology capable of having a steep learning curve. But there is no room for worry as our experts have taken utmost care to carefully design the course for all aspiring ITians.
