Abstract: This article shows how to use property triggers in WPF to apply styles to the DataGrid at runtime.
Category WPF Views: 91149
Abstract: In this article, I have described a scenario where a WPF application is trying to use the task parallel library to load data. The app retrieves data using a WCF service and also accesses data from the local database server. The application dedicates a long running WCF service call to the Task class, so that the call to the service can be made asynchronously.
Category WPF Views: 69774
Abstract: This article demonstrates that in case of complex data representations like an Editable ListBox, using ItemsControls, we can easily configure Commanding for DataTemplates.
Category WPF Views: 91326

Category WPF Views: 68673
Abstract: This article demonstrates how to create a WPF user control similar to the Silverlight DataForm control.
Category WPF Views: 88151
Abstract: Prism 4 Commanding and its facility of the CommandBehavior helps us to develop End-To-End application for DML operations using controls like the WPF DataGrid. In this article, we will see a practical implementation of the same.
Category WPF Views: 99642
Abstract: The WPF DataGrid control has lots of features for data representations and manipulations (like row column drag drop). One of the nicest features of the DataGrid, is that we can change the column position using Drag-Drop. In this article, we will see how to implement Drag and Drop in a DataGrid Row.
Category WPF Views: 61994

Category WPF Views: 128919
Abstract: In this article, we will see how to make use of the Progress Bar control provided in WPF.
Category WPF Views: 77046
Abstract: In this article, I will discuss how to create a custom control using WPF. WPF allows us to define our controls using either User Control (UC) or Custom Control (CC).

WPF Auto-Complete Control

Posted by: Mahesh Sabnis , on 9/4/2010
