WPF Controls Gallery Sample
[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]
This sample graphically shows common usage scenarios and the default rendering behavior for many user interface (UI) and layout controls in Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). The Controls Gallery features a collapsible table of contents that has entries for many of the UI and layout controls that are supported in WPF. When you compile the sample, you can easily navigate the gallery and experience for yourself the breadth of the development platform.
This sample demonstrates a specific feature of the Windows Presentation Foundation 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:
