Writing a Package Sample

This sample shows how to write content, resource, and relationship parts to a XML Paper Specification (XPS) Package. The content and resource elements can later be accessed from the package. In executing the PackageWrite sample, given elements in the provided "Content" and "Resources" folders are combined into a new XPS myPackage.package file. myPackage.package is a ZIP file that contains the package's combined content, resource, and relationship elements. The myPackage.package file is deleted and recreated each time the sample is executed. Reference copies of myPackage.package are provided in the files myPackage-sample.package and myPackage-sample.package.zip (a duplicate of myPackage-sample.package with a .zip extension to make it easy to open and explore).

This sample demonstrates a specific feature of the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and, consequently, does not follow application development best practices. For comprehensive coverage of Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Microsoft .NET Framework application development best practices, refer to the following as appropriate:
