4 Great Tips for Custom WPF Controls Developers

by Alan Mendelevich


Recently I’ve been working on a set of custom WPF controls.

There are numerous good books and articles about WPF in general and some basic information on custom control development but I have yet to find a good article (or book) with in-depth coverage of custom control development in general and design-time related issues in particular.

I’ve done my share of custom ASP.NET control development (see ASP.NET Controls for amCharts http://www.amcharts.com/aspnet, or SPAW Editor ASP.NET Edition http://spaweditor.com), and actually the basic principles are not that different. However some things should be implemented in a totally different manner and it wasn’t really obvious to me where those differences start and what to do about them. I’ve spent quite some time figuring these things out, so I decided to share my findings here hoping that it would save someone some time which could be better spent implementing new features.  more here
