26. Juli 2013 Unleashed
The #1 WPF Book--Now Updated for WPF 4.5! Thorough, authoritative coverage, practical examples, clear writing, and full-color presentation make this one of the most widely acclaimed programming books of the last decade. Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) is the recommended technology for creating modern Windows desktop apps. Whether you want to develop traditional user interfaces or integrate 3D graphics, audio/video, animation, dynamic skinning, touch, rich document support, speech recognition, or more, WPF enables you to do so in a seamless, resolution-independent manner that scales from small tablets to large TVs. WPF 4.5 Unleashed is the authoritative book that covers it all, in a practical and approachable fashion, authored by WPF guru and Microsoft architect Adam Nathan. * Covers everything you need to know about Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML)* Examines the WPF feature areas in incredible depth: controls, layout, resources, data binding, styling, graphics, animation, and more* Delves into topics that aren't covered by most books: 3D, speech, audio/video, documents, effects* Shows how to create popular UI elements and leverage built-in controls such as the new Office-style Ribbon* Demonstrates how to create sophisticated UI mechanisms, such as Visual Studio-like collapsible/dockable panes* Explains how to create first-class custom controls for WPF* Demonstrates how to create hybrid WPF software that leverages Windows Forms, DirectX, ActiveX, or other non-WPF technologies* Explains how to exploit desktop features, such as Jump Lists and taskbar customizations, and the same toast notifications used by Windows Store apps

Praise for the First Edition "The Nathan book is brilliant--you'll love it. Publishers, take note: I'd sure be buying a heck of a lot more technical books if more of them were like this one." --Jeff Atwood, codinghorror.com, cofounder of Stack Overflow "Windows Presentation Foundation Unleashed is a must-have book for anyone interested in learning and using WPF. Buy it, read it, and keep it close to your computer." --Josh Smith, Microsoft MVP "As we built the feature team that delivered the new WPF presentation layer for Visual Studio 2010, Windows Presentation Foundation Unleashed quickly became our must-read WPF reference book of choice, over and above other books on WPF and indeed internal documentation. Highly recommended for any developer wanting to learn how to make the most of WPF." --James Bartlett, senior lead program manager, Microsoft Visual Studio "I've bought nearly all available WPF books, but the only one that's still on my desk is Windows Presentation Foundation Unleashed. It not only covers all WPF aspects, but it does it in the right, concise way so that reading it was a real pleasure." --Corrado Cavalli, Codeworks "Windows Presentation Foundation Unleashed is the most insightful WPF book there is. Don't be misled by its size; this book has the best introduction and deepest insights. This is the must-read for anyone getting started or wanting to get the most out of WPF." --Jaime Rodriguez, Microsoft client evangelist for Windows, WPF, Silverlight, and Windows Phone "I found Windows Presentation Foundation Unleashed to be an excellent and thorough introduction and guide to programming WPF. It is clearly written, easily understood, and yet still deep enough to get a good understanding of how WPF works and how to use it. Not a simple feat to accomplish! I heartily recommend it to all the students who take DevelopMentor's WPF course! Anyone serious about doing WPF work should have a copy in their library." --Mark Smith, DevelopMentor instructor, author of DevelopMentor's Essential WPF course "I have read Windows Presentation Foundation Unleashed from cover to cover and have found it to be really the most comprehensive material on WPF. I can't think of even a single instance when I have not been able to find the solution (or a pointer to one) every time that I have picked up the book to figure out the intricacies of WPF." --Durgesh Nayak, team leader, Axis Technical Group "Windows Presentation Foundation Unleashed is the book that made WPF make so much sense for me. Without Adam's work, WPF would still be a mystery to me and my team. The enthusiasm for WPF is evident from the offset and it really rubs off on the reader." --Peter O'Hanlon, managing director, Lifestyle Computing Ltd "Adam Nathan's Windows Presentation Foundation Unleashed must surely be considered one of the seminal books on WPF. It has everything you need to help you get to grips with the learning cliff that is WPF. It certainly taught me loads, and even now, after several years of full-time WPF development, Windows Presentation Foundation Unleashed is never far from my hand." --Sacha Barber, Microsoft MVP, CodeProject MVP, author of many WPF articles "Of all the books published about WPF, there are only three that I recommend. Windows Presentation Foundation Unleashed is my primary recommendation to developers looking to get up to speed quickly with WPF." --Mike Brown, Microsoft MVP, Client App Development, and president of KharaSoft, Inc.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Inhalt top wie immer, Papier aber nicht mehr 30. September 2013
Von ColdAsIce
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Auf den Inhalt gehe ich hier nicht ein - da ist es vermutlich weiterhin das beste Buch zu WPF - siehe andere Rezensionen.
Aber eine Warnung zur Papierausgabe:
Ich habe über die Jahre nun die dritte Papier-Ausgabe des Buchs. Bei der Ausgabe WPF 4.5 ist jedoch (zuindest bei meinem Exemplar aus UK) das Papier extrem dünn geraten. Die vorherige Ausgabe WPF 4.0 hatte 830 Seiten und war dabei 42mm dick. Die neue Ausgabe 4.5 hat 20 Seiten mehr und misst dabei nur noch 26mm! Für meinen Geschmack ist das viel zu dünn und ich fürchte, dass in Kürze die Seiten einreißen. Beim Lesen kommt Tageszeitungs-Feeling auf. Die Inhalte der Rückseiten schimmern außerdem überall auffällig störend durch. Das war früher deutlich besser! Die nächste Version werde ich daher garantiert nicht mehr im Papierformat kaufen.
Punktabzug hier nur wegen dem Papier - Inhalt 5 Sterne!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Das Buch macht Laune und richtig Lust auf WPF. 1. April 2014
Von Gowron
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Adam Nathan schreibt stets präzise, sehr verständlich und immer interessant.
Mit diesem Buch macht es richtig Spaß, sich in WPF einzufinden, nicht nur die wichtigsten Grundlagen zu lesen, sondern auch wirklich zu verstehen, wie WPF "tickt", und wie schnell und einfach man damit arbeiten kann.

Es werden alle relevanten Bereiche (und auch weit darüber Hinausgehendes!) von WPF beleuchtet und aufeinander aufgebaut. So entwickelt man ein sehr gutes Verständnis für die Zusammenhänge und fühlt sich bei WPF zu Hause.

Es werden auch stets tiefer gehende Tipps, Hintergrundinformationen und Fallen aufgeführt. Die Projekte und Quellcode-Dateien, die man passend zum Buch herunterladen kann, laden zum Experimentieren ein und sind eine sinnvolle Ergänzung zum Buch.

Ich habe es aufgrund der vorherigen Rezension übrigens als Kindle-Version gekauft (was auch preislich sehr reizvoll war ;-)) und habe es nicht bereut.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must-have for WPF developers 19. Dezember 2013
Von Michael
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I recently got into Windows desktop programming using c# and WPF. Coming from C++ and QT background, I did not really know .NET and WPF at all. Both technologies are quite complex and introduce a few concepts (like the MVVM model and XAML), so the learning curve is quite steep for any newbie.

This is where the book really shines. I think it is easily one of the best coding books I have ever read. It is noticeable that the author really knows his stuff and can draw from a lot of experience. Also, he has structured the book in a logical way, i.e. introducing the core concepts behind WPF before diving into the API and the coding. This is crucial as you will make critical mistakes if you start coding before you understand the architecture well enough (I learned the hard way ;).

Also notheworthy are the "Digging Deeper", "Warning" and "Tip" textboxes throughout the book. They provide in-depth information about a topic, warn about common pitfalls or provide general tips and best practice advice for using a certain piece of technology.

By the way: The book is in full color, which makes it great to read (you get the proper syntax highlighting).

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best WPF book there is and one of the best technical books I've read to date 26. November 2013
Von M. Goldshteyn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This book is a prime example of how a WPF book should be written. The author not only presents many topics in an encyclopedic fashion, but also gives details for the "whys." Also, the diagrams in the book are phenomenal in helping to illustrate the examples and descriptions presented in the text. The book has both a lot of breadth and a lot of depth as well. One can choose to read this book "superficially," ignoring the details. However, for those of us who are interested in the whys as well as the hows, this book presents much more depth than I would expect from a WPF (or any software development) book.

As for the rating, I give the content 6 out of 5 stars. On the other hand, I give the publisher (Sams) 2 out of 5 stars. The reason for this is that the pages are ridiculously thin, so you get bleed-through between the two sides of a page, especially in the many densely colored regions that are present in the illustrations in this book. Also, the CMY color plates that are used to add color to the book were often off, resulting in imprecise positioning of colors which is especially noticeable on thin lines and colored text. On top of all of this, two physical pages in my particular book had slight creases in the paper, which resulted in significant misprints on those pages. Fortunately, the resultant printed pages were still legible, so I did not bother to return the book to Amazon or the publisher for a replacement.

In all, because of the quality of the actual content, I do not want to subtract a star or two from the book's rating. However, I think that Sams _really_ needs to do a much better job of printing color books such as this one. Skimping on paper thickness and not aligning the color plates properly is reminiscent of printing errors from the early 80s, not late 2013.

5.0 von 5 Sternen this book is a pure pleasure to read 29. Oktober 2013
Von T. Anderson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
So, do we stick with a technology that Microsoft has labelled as legacy - WPF, or do we go with the new unpopular WinRT for line of business applications? After the Silverlight fiasco I personally do not trust Microsoft to not throw the baby out with the bath water again in the future. My hope for Microsoft is all placed on the fact that the Steves (Sinofsky, Ballmer) are gone/going.

Right now I am sticking with WPF instead of moving to WinRT for new LOB applications. My primary reason is WinRT tablets are still sitting on shelves and I can't come up with any reason why they shouldn't stay there.

I want nothing more than to keep WinRT off my laptops and desktops. It is fine for tablets, but I need to run the same app on tablets, laptops, and desktops. Logic would say perfect, WinRT is on all three. In the past I would have believed that would remain true, but I can see the new Microsoft mentality pulling it from desktops and laptops to get people moving off Windows 7. They have a long way to go to earn my trust back.

Ok, my soapbox is in the closet. I just thought I would provide some background as to why I am still interested in keeping current with WPF.

Like its predecessor, this book is a pure pleasure to read. It is in full color, the content is laid out in an easy to read style, the author's writing style makes it easy to read, and the content is all valuable. There is no fluff like you find in a lot of the books written today.

The book starts out with an awesome chapter on XAML, and then moves on to a very thorough treatment of everything WPF. It covers everything and covers it in depth.

The book is broken down into 6 parts and an appendix. I have listed each part and the chapters they contain below.

Part I: Background
Chapter 1. Why WPF?
Chapter 2. XAML Demystified
Chapter 3. WPF Fundamentals

Part II: Building a WPF Application
Chapter 4. Sizing, Positioning, and Transforming Elements
Chapter 5. Layout with Panels
Chapter 6. Input Events: Keyboard, Mouse, Stylus, and Touch
Chapter 7. Structuring and Deploying an Application
Chapter 8. Exploiting Windows Desktop Features

Part III: Controls
Chapter 9. Content Controls
Chapter 10. Items Controls
Chapter 11. Images, Text, and Other Controls

Part IV: Features for Professional Developers
Chapter 12. Resources
Chapter 13. Data Binding
Chapter 14. Styles, Templates, Skins, and Themes

Part V: Rich Media
Chapter 15. 2D Graphics
Chapter 16. 3D Graphics
Chapter 17. Animation
Chapter 18. Audio, Video, and Speech

Part VI: Advanced Topics
Chapter 19. Interoperability with Non-WPF Technologies
Chapter 20. User Controls and Custom Controls
Chapter 21. Layout with Custom Panels
Chapter 22. Toast Notifications

Appendix A. Fun with XAML Readers and Writers
The Node Loop
Reading XAML
Writing to Live Objects
Writing to XML

As you can see by the chapter's titles there are a ton of topics covered. The author's writing style is very clean and easy to understand making the book an enjoyable read. It is actually fun to read. I can't say that about too many programming books.

The code samples are well organized, very usable and work as downloaded. I mention the work as download because lately I have been downloads some author's code samples and the time it takes to get them to work is more than they are worth.

There is no coverage of the MVVM pattern at all. With all the MVVM material available out there today, to include it may have just been redundant. There is also nothing worth mentioning on networking either. That is not a bad thing, just wanted to mention it. The author sticks to the client.

This is a great cover to cover read as well as a great reference to keep close by when working with WPF.

All in All I think this book is the perfect book for taking a WPF beginner to a WPF expert.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Written to make you MORE of an expert 17. September 2013
Von Richard Ulrich - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Probably the most important thing you and I look for in these reviews is "Who is this book written for?". The answer here is someone who already knows a good deal of C# programming that wants to become an expert at WPF. If you want a start-from-zero book on how to create user interfaces this is not it. But if you know C# and you want to learn WPF in the context of how it interacts with C code as well as with hardware, this is the book for you. The more you know about programming in general, the more this book will help you.

It's hard to quantify what is meant by "expert" and "the more you know . . . " but if you don't know what inheritance is or what "instanciate" means, you might not get as much out of it. If you know C# and you want to get about as deep into WPF as you can go, this book will take you there. The first three chapters set the stage by giving extensive details on the background, philosophy and operation of WPF. There is even some history thrown in, and the author is in a position to know it! I read those three but started on Chapt 4 where the WPF building really begins.

I can give you some advice as to the path to follow if you're not already a C# expert. I certainly wasn't when I was searching for a book like this but I was a competent programmer. I started with John Sharp's excellent book "Visual C# 2010", beginning on p. 443 he takes you through your first WPF interface in great detail for about 100 pages. After I finished his tutorial, I had no trouble going to "WPF 4.5 Unleashed" and starting on Chapt 4 where Mr. Nathan begins getting into WPF deeply. Between the two I learned a lot of both interface and programming skills. I would not have been able to just jump into "Unleashed" because I didn't quite have the programming skills. You might be in better or worse shape to start.

From what I now know about WPF, there isn't much that it can do that this book doesn't at least touch on. It was a great teaching tool for me and serves now as a reference book when I need to try something advanced.

The writing is succinct and clear. The color graphics and type are VERY helpful and greatly aids following along on your computer, particularly if you Visual Studio.

It's a very good book and I'm glad I bought it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great for those who may be reluctant to move off of WinForms 31. Dezember 2013
Von TC - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I was a little worried that this text would fly right over my head but was pleasantly surprised. It is easy to read and understand, has just the right amount of history and back story for each chapter and the material is presented in a useful and logical order.

If you have at least a moderate knowledge of WinForms and Visual studio the lessons will be easy to understand and do a excellent job of highlighting the differences, advantages and limitations of WPF. Also, there is plenty of depth for experts who are looking for a decent reference.

I purchased the Kindle version thinking if I liked the book I'd get a hard copy. The Kindle version, when viewed using the cloud reader, is near perfectly formatted and is in full color, a nice improvement over previous Kindle programming books I've experienced.
