WPF vs Windows Form

Post icon  Posted 05 September 2008 - 03:17 AM

Hi all,

What's the difference between a WPF Apllication and a Windows Forms app?
What is a WPF?
What I'm trying to find out is when does someone build an app in WPF and when in Windows Forms?

Thanks All!

I just wrote a blog about this topic http://geekatwork.wo...s-windows-form/. WFP is a new way of writing windows forms. It uses extensible applicaiton markup language (XAML), and the UI is rendered at run time by .NET framework 3.5. It has better support to audio, video, 3D and automation.

I think the biggest benefit of WPF over WinForms is the separation of UI and code. So now, a designer can design the form, and a coder can do the code. Designers don't have to do code, and coders don't have to do the design.
