Free preview chapter of Adam Nathan’s WPF book

Some of you will know Microsoft’s Adam Nathan as the author of .NET and COM, still the best book available for drilling deep into the way .NET interops with native code. He’s now written a guide to the Windows Presentation Foundation, one of the key components of the new Windows API. I’ll be reviewing the book in due course, but in the meantime the publishers have kindly given permission for me to offer a free chapter to readers of this blog.

Download Chapter 3, Important New Concepts in WPF [PDF].

Chapter 3 covers WPF logical trees, dependency properties, routed events, commands, and the overall class hierarchy.
