Charles Petzold's latest book, Applications = Code + Markup: A Guide to the Microsoft Windows Presentation Foundation, is the best WPF book available right now. Unfortuantely, all code samples in the book are written in C#. In order to help VB developers trying to learn about WPF, we are working with a couple of VB experts to convert all samples appearing in the book to VB. As we finish converting each chapter, this page will be updated with a link to sample code package.

Quick info about two experts helping us with this.

- Evan Lim is currently teaching WPF & Blend courses at Foothill Community College in Los Altos, CA.

- Ged Mead, VB MVP, is currently based in an idyllic lochside location in the West of Scotland and is currently involved in an ever-widening range of VB.NET development projects, which include research for a proposed .NET book as well as writing articles, organising and creating online courses in .NET technologies.

Thank you! I'm looking forward to actually get my hands on some VB samples for the world of WPF.
Thank you again :)

WOW, this really is awesome. Thank you for the code samples.

With all the losers out there writing viruses, it sure is nice to have this many more helpful people. I started programming back in the 80s but hated it so I stopped. I'm just now getting back into it and so far "knock on wood" none of the code suggestions I have came across have contained any viruses.

Thanks again.
