Nice one indeed. Informative and useful for the WPF people..
BTW, the glyph's and images are quite handsome...how did you do this..? by means of office 2007 apps or visio?

Shafqat Ahmed

Thanks, Moim. I used an alternative software. By the way ... it is very easy to make such a diagram designer software in WPF.

Very good and interesting article. Any peace of XAML/WPF sample with explanation like this one, is worth the reading, when it comes to increase our knowledge in this magnificent technology from Microsoft.



Thank you for this article. In one post you have moved me from a state of confusion and frustration to a better understanding of not just the tab control, but all WPF controls. The diagrams pointing to the xaml code and the element on the control helped me put my finger on what I was trying to change. Microsoft could only dream that their documentation is this helpful. Thanks again!

I thought I would reach out to you to see if you might be able to pass this unique opportunity around to people who might be interested in this type of role here in NYC. I am not sure of your current status but was hoping at least to do some networking. Would you be open to having a quick chat?

A very good greetings to all readers. I think everyone should agree with me in thinking that the anatomy is the foundation of all learning, whether any medical science or a motor or other device, first to learn of any branch must be known physical or anatomical structure. From this it should start then delve into the subject, here is the importance of anatomy.
