This content is outdated and is no longer being maintained. It is provided as a courtesy for individuals who are still using these technologies.
The Smart Client Software Factory includes the source code and signed assemblies for the Composite UI Application Block. The source code matches the code in the Composite UI Application Block – December 2005 release.
The software factory contains the following additions to the original documentation and code:
- Overview description. The documentation provides a summary of the key features of the application block in the topic Overview.
- Extensions to support WPF. The source code includes a new project, CompositeUI.WPF, that extends the application block. This project contains workspaces, a custom ObjectBuilder strategy, and more, to support the integration of Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) controls in smart client applications that you create with the software factory. For a description of the extensions, see Composite UI Application Block Extensions for WPF.
- WPF Integration QuickStart. The software factory includes a QuickStart that demonstrates use of the WPF extensions in a simple application. For a description of the QuickStart and instructions about how to build and run it, see Windows Presentation Foundation Integration QuickStart.
