Your expert guide to designing and building dynamic user interfaces

Sharpen your application design and development skills using XAML—the declarative markup language used in Microsoft® Silverlight®, Windows® Presentation Foundation (WPF), and the Windows 8 Runtime APIs. Led by two XAML experts, you’ll learn practical ways to build rich, interactive user interfaces with data integration capabilities and support for multimedia, graphics, and animation. This hands-on guide is ideal for Microsoft .NET developers and web designers alike.

Discover how to:

  • Control UI behavior and implement business logic with code-behind solutions
  • Manage UI element positioning with the XAML layout system
  • Use templates to customize UI elements—without affecting their functionality
  • Apply different types of property and event systems in WPF and Silverlight
  • Bind various kinds of data to your UI, and display them in the format you want
  • Implement 2D and 3D vector graphics and animations
  • Reuse control styles and properties to maintain consistency throughout your application
