I've bought three books about WPF, including Windows Presentation Foundation Foundation Unleashed and Silverlight . Unleashed. Matthew MacDonald's book is for developers and is what I needed. It uses Visual Studio 2008 and is up to date with current development tools. WPF . did not have major feature upgrades from . version, only because there is not that much new material.

The Microsoft Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) blends application user interface, documents, and media content to provide richer control, design, and development of the visual aspects of Windows programs.

In this book, author Matthew MacDonald shows you how WPF really works. His no-nonsense, practical advice will get you quickly and easily building high-quality WPF applications. MacDonald takes you through a thorough investigation of the more advanced aspects of WPF, and its relation to other elements of the WinFX stack and the .NET Framework 3.5, to complete your understanding of WPF and C# 2008.

I purchased many of the WPF books out there for myself and my team. This book has become my new favorite (with Chris Sells WPF book coming in second - sorry Chris!). The book goes into more details about why things work the way they do instead of just saying this is how it should be done. Books that provide deep understanding of a topic are hard to find in today's mantra of pushing low budget tech books out the door for copy and paste code examples. The author finds just the right balance of code, pictures and words. With this book you get 800 pages of information and not 800 pages of code examples printed page after page after page.
Please buy this book if you haven't explored Windows Presentation Foundation. The separation of the UI (with XAML) and the code-behind page controller (C# or VB.NET) will revolutionize .NET development. If you don't have a designer you must learn Microsoft Expression Blend, but a UI designer will push your view (from Model-View-Controller) to the extreme.

The browser-based XBAP works like a Winform app, but it can be viewed in Internet Explorer. If you've ever tried to create a dirty flag to denote changes in form data in ASP.NET, you know how superior Winforms are for this purpose. XBAPs give you the ability to access the textbox text changed event like Winforms. This takes a ton of JavaScript to accomplish the same programming task in ASP.NET forms.

The update of the application to the client machine (the XBAP runs on the client) can be done with new technolgy called ClickOnce. What a technology!

I've even tried to learn the XAML markup from a very good chapter on this.

This book is really well done. Kudos to the author.
I have the first edition of this book (Pro WPF: Windows Presentation Foundation in .NET 3.0), so I was hesitant in buying this version. WPF 3.5 did not have major feature upgrades from 3.0. I am glad that I did buy it, but I can't really recommend doing so for other people with the .NET 3.0 version, only because there is not that much new material.

However, I highly recommend the book if you don't own the previous edition. I also highly recommend it even if you have the first one and you are like me and pretty much trashed my first edition copy. It has been through several storms and has a lot of notes and ink running all over it. So it is nice to have a new copy to beat the crap out of. I also like having the latest information I am using up to date.

Here is what is new in this release:
--Firefox support for XBAPs.
--Data binding support for LINQ.
--Data binding support for IDataErrorInfo.
--Support for placing interactive controls (such as buttons) inside a RichTextBox control.
--Support for placing 2-D elements on 3-D surfaces.
--An add-in model.

Matthew has added content for all the topics listed above.

Some of the highlights of the book I like:
--His in-depth coverage of printing.
--His Custom Elements chapter.
--The new chapter on Application Add-Ins.
--The chapter on using ClickOnce with WPF.
--Everything is gone into in depth. This is not a brush over the topic book.
--The usability of the code makes the book all that much more valuable.

The book focuses on WPF only. It has a few pages on LINQ, but that is about it as far as the rest of the .NET 3.5 framework goes. In other words, the book does not cover how to best use WPF in relationship to WCF, WF, or LINQ. This does not take anything away from the book because Matthew does not claim that the book does this. I only mention it because his ASP.NET 3.5 book does go into LINQ application integration.

The downloadable code is very well organized and is very usable.

I highly recommend this book to anyone getting into WPF with .NET 3.5.
My Gawd! I bought both this and the unleashed book for a class - a class where the instructor refused to teach us anything.
(which sux, but I'll leave that alone for now)

I have been programming for a heck of a long time, so I actually claim to know a few things...

One thing I know is that no other "language" than xaml is so whacked out in the way that if you "add something", your previous code starts f***ing up so badly.

Pretty much all the books will show you how to put in a piece of xaml. But that is not the issue. The issue is when you try to add some more code and bam! your stuff just got all blown up.

xaml is so screwed up that understanding the plumbing is not feasible unless you want to make it your life's journey. What is needed is syntax examples of combinations of xaml.

Trust me. You can't "think" your way through it. xaml is bad. And that is why all these books can't make you understand it or be good at it.

Bottom line: MS needs to re-write xaml.

There. I started out criticizing the book and then went to bashing xaml. Hey xaml users - how easy is it to learn how to make things that resemble real objects in life? How easy is it to understand someone else's code? Answer: it is not easy.

And so far, I have not found the book that makes it easy.

Flame me if you want, but you know I speak the TRUTH.
Just finished this monster of a book and have to say it is one of the books I not only enjoyed but will undoubtably be referring to constantly at work.

The Writer explains everything in WPF in detail, good step through on code examples with C# and XAML. His coding is clean, minimal, and excellently done.

I would have given this book 5 stars easily except a few peeves. It appeared to me the chapters were a bit out of sync and switched around from topics I thought should have been put closer together. Not a big deal, just made the reading flow a bit disjointed. My only other minor issue was the Writer was at times a bit too verbose, "too much detail" so to speak.

That said, I still highly recommend this book!
