Course Description: This course provides students with hands on experience using Visual Studio to create Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) applications using VB.NET. The class provides a thorough introduction to the VB.NET programming language, including coverage of the essentials of the VB.NET 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 with 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 to build Students also learn the basics of working with audio and images, as well as performing simple animations.
Other topics include: debugging techniques; building menus, toolbars and status bars; using the ribbon control; reading and writing files; and deploying WPF applications. Comprehensive labs and exercises provide the students with extensive experience creating and debugging WPF applications.
This course provides thorough coverage of the use of Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) to build desktop applications. Students requiring additional coverage of Windows Forms, ASP.NET Web Forms, ASP.NET MVC or WCFshould contact HOTT or refer to HOTT's complete course listing for additional training courses.
Students who are already familiar with the VB.NET language may want to take the 3-day WPF Programming for Experienced VB.NET Programmers class instead.
Course Prerequisites: Knowledge of fundamental XML syntax is helpful, but not required. Prior experience with a scripting or programming language is required.
