WPF Tutorial - A Cool Image Viewer

I just love WPF, it's the best UI system I've ever worked with.

When I want to introduce my friend to WPF I just build a small image viewer with them, it takes me less than 30 minutes and it really shows the power of WPF features like templates and data binding.

I've decided to expand my little demo and post it to my blog, this will take several posts – each one showing another nice feature.

Before we begin there are a few things we need in order to write WPF code:

  • Windows XP SP2 or Windows Vista – WPF doesn't work on older systems.
  • .net framework version 3.0 (download it here).
  • Visual Studio 2005
  • Visual Studio 2005 extensions for .net 3.0 (WCF&WPF) November 2006 CTP ( download it here)

You can also use the Visual Studio 2008 beta

If you want in depth information I recommend this book.

Do you have any samples in VB to load the images?
