The LINQ to XML Data Binding sample demonstrates how to bind data in WPF by using LINQ to XML. The example enables you to stream videos from Soapbox on MSN Videos and lets you keep a list of your favorties (MyFavorties). The interface has two tabs, Soapbox on MSN Video and Edit MyFavorites. Soapbox on MSN Video enables you to browse through predefined video lists and your custom search results. If you like a video, you can add it to your favorites by clicking the Add button. In Edit MyFavorites, you can update a video description or delete videos from MyFavorites. Look at the Window1.xaml file to see how controls are bound to streaming XML data.
