TRAINING COURSE OVERVIEW

Our Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) training course is expert-led focusing on developing Windows desktop applications using Visual Studio.  The XAML (declarative language) is introduced to define a rich User Interface.  We introduce Data Binding which then leads into the Model View View-Model (MVVM) architecture with the benefit of separation of concerns and ease of testing.


AUDIENCE

Developers who need to realise the full potential of WPF within their .NET projects.



DETAILHIGHLIGHTS

WPF Fundamentals

WPF Overview
WPF architecture
Essential WPF concepts:
    Logical and Visual Tree
    Dependency Properties
    Delegates
    Routed Events
    Commands
    Class Hierarchy

XAML Basics

XAML allows the declarative definition of a user interface. Defining a view as XAML and binding data provides the separation of view from conventional code:
    Elements
    Namespaces
    Dependency Properties
    Type Converters
    Markup Extensions
    Resources

Lab: Create WPF Application; Explore XAML and Project structure

Building WPF User Interface

Standard Controls
Panels and Control Positioning
Layout/Panels
Attached Properties
Windows and User Controls
Control Templates
Styles, Templates, Themes & Skins
Documents & Text

Lab: Experiment with User Interface; Use standard controls, properties, styles and templates

DataBinding and Validation

DataBinding is a very important aspect of WPF as this feature allows the separation of View from the data being presented.  WPF provides a very flexible means of binding also providing an alternative to the use of events:
    Data Binding Principles
    Element Binding
    Binding to objects and collections
    Data Providers
    Data Templates
    Validation options

Lab: Explore binding options; Bind data to controls within ‘view’

Behaviours

Behaviours provide a means of separating common UI functionality from the basic view code:
    Behaviours and Blend
    Standard Behaviours
    Defining Behaviours

Lab: Define a Behaviour and apply to controls

Drawing

Shapes
Geometry
Paths

Lab: Add drawing elements to enhance user interface

Model View ViewModel (MVVM)

The MVVM approach provides a key approach to separate functionality within a WPF Application. Applying MVVM relies on a number of features of WPF:
    MVVM Principles
    Commands
    ICommand, INotifyPropertyChanged
    Dependency Injection

Lab: Apply the MVVM approach to separate concerns

Asynchronous Programming and Threading

Using Asynchronous programming or multiple threads within a Windows Application involves a number of important concepts and features:
    Threading Principles
    Delegates and Threads
    Asynchronous Programming
    Task Asynchronous Pattern
    Synchronization Issues
    Background Worker
    Dispatcher

Lab: Create background thread and update UI from this thread
