Course description

Windows Presentation Foundation Programming Using C#

This course provides students with hands on experience using Visual Studio to create Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) applications using C#. The class provides a thorough introduction to the C# programming language, including coverage of the essentials of the C# programming language, built in data types, operators, control structures, classes and methods, collections and exception handling.

Students then learn how to leverage the power of the .NET Framework to build WPF applications. Students learn the basics of XAML and how to use it to describe the appearance and behavior of WPF user interfaces. Students also learn how to use XAML resources to manage styles, triggers and control templates.

Students learn how use a variety of WPF controls to interact with users and manage data in multi-form applications. Students explore how to leverage the power of XAML data binding. Students also learn the basics of working with images and simple animations.

Students learn how to use their data binding and command skills to implement the MVVM design pattern with WPF applications, including case studies. Students will also learn how to leverage the power of web services by calling both SOAP services and RESful APIs.

Other topics include: debugging techniques; building menus, toolbars and status bars; reading and writing files; and deploying WPF applications. Comprehensive labs and exercises provide the students with extensive experience creating and debugging WPF applications.
