Resource Page Description
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.

**Delete the following note before publishing **

This resource page is currently in setup mode and only available to coordinators and developers. Once you have finished setting up your resource page you can publish it to make it available to all MSDN Code Gallery visitors.

To get your Resource Page ready to publish, you should do the following:
  1. Make any changes to the details of your resource page
    1. Here you can enable or disable functions of your resource page. You might want to turn on the Issue Tracker to allow users to provide feedback on your resource, or if you have a resource that does not involve a code sample, you may want to turn off the Releases tab.
    2. Make sure your resource page description is detailed enough to let people search for your resource.
  2. Add your code sample or other resources to the resource page
    1. If you’re uploading code, go to the Releases tab and create a new release to house your code. Creating a release allows you to have the license properly displayed when people download your code, as well as provides a download count.
    2. Edit your Wiki page to attach any resources you may have that are not source code.
  3. If you want to let someone see your resource page before it is published, go to the People tab and add them to your resource page
    1. This will let you add other team members who may be contributing to your resource, or just show it off and get feedback from someone you trust.
  4. Tag your resource page with descriptive tags to make it easier for people to find your resources when browsing the gallery.
  5. Publish your resource page so it becomes visible to everyone!

Additional information on starting a new resource page is available here: Resource Page Startup Guide.

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.
