Default Graphics Design by WPF

Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) is a next generation graphics platform which is included in the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 and 3.5. It allows you to build advanced user interfaces (UI) that incorporate documents, media, 2D and 3D graphics, animations, and web-like characteristics.

Built on the .NET framework 3.0 and 3.5, WPF provides a managed environment for developing applications using the Windows operating system.

Like other features of the .NET Framework 3.0 and 3.5, WPF is available for Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003.
WPF introduces a new XML based language, called XAML. XAML allows applications to dynamically parse and manipulate user interface elements at either design-time or runtime.

It uses the code-behind model, similar to ASP.NET programming, allowing designers and developers to work in parallel and to seamlessly combine their work to create a compelling user experience. Of course, WPF also provides you the option to not use XAML files when you develop WPF applications, meaning that you can still develop your applications entirely in code such as C#, C++, or Visual Basic.

Let’s look at a simple XAML structure:

<Window x:Class="Chapter01.Window1"
xmlns=" /2006/xaml/presentation"
Title="Chapter1" Height="300" Width="300">
<TextBlock>Hello, WPF!</TextBlock>

One of the interesting and very useful features is the WPF adorner. In this article we will discuss briefly about Adorner and how to create a simple adorner.
