Tim's tips for learning WPF

Tim Sneath posts a good set of resources to start your journey with WPF.

He references my PDC 2005 Lap around WPF talk.  I wonder how that talk would change with more mature tools now?
I'm beginning to post information for each of my talks (including my demo script, etc...).  If you are interested, check it out.

My PDC 2003 talk was better rated by attendees than this talk...

    This was a great demo.I have downloaded the Source Code and tried to run.It is throwing error, Could not locate the assembly "System.Transactions.Indigo". Check to make sure the assembly exists on disk.
    Can you please help me where to get this assembly.
    I am currently using VS2005 and WinFX January CTP.

    I haven't tried porting that Demo to any build after the Sept 2005 PDC CTP.
    I just spent 20 minutes to port it to the Feb CTP, but I have a few problems:
    1) My resource reference to the ContosoLogo defined in myapp.xaml isn't working.
    2) The ChartFX control I included in the sample was compiled against the PDC CTP.
    3) I'm getting a tough to diagnose error in window1.xaml.

    #3 is blocking me from running this now.
    I had problems installing the Windows SDK on this machine before I went on vacation, so I also don't have the benefit of the xaml and xaml/presentation schemas to help me find problems through xaml intellisense.

    I hope to finish this work sometime next week. Please add a new comment if you don't see it by then...

    The way you would illustrate that is by having the window itself, lets make it a full window with a frame and everything and in illustration the glare could simply be illustrated as lines like in this case this is a plain window you can see through it fine. Thanks a lot.
