The LINQ to XML Data Binding sample shows data binding 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 MyFavorites by clicking the Add button. In Edit MyFavorties you can update the video description and delete a video from MyFavorites. Look at Window1.xaml file to see how controls are bound to streaming XML data.


Many LINQ samples require XML files and/or the version of the Northwind sample database that is located in the Data sample. If you install the Data Sample in the same parent folder as the other LINQ samples, the path for the XML files and database file will be resolved automatically. Many sample files also require the Object Dumper Sample project.
