More Adventures in MVVM In this post, I am going to explore how I prefer to attach ViewModels to my Views. I have published the code to my ViewModelSupport project on CodePlex in case you'd like to see how it works along with some examples. Some History My approach to View-First ViewModel creation has evolved over time. I have constructed ViewModels ......

I am currently working on a multi-touch application using WPF. One thing that has been irritating me with this development is an automatic navigation forward/back command that is bound to forward and backwards flicks. Many of my touch-based interactions were being thwarted by gestures picked up by WPF as navigation. I just wanted to disable this behavior. ......

More Adventures in MVVM EDIT: Here is why I love blogging and sharing code so much: Putting your ideas and code out into the public space always manages to add value to the ideas that were originally posted. Case in point: Tobias Richling commented on this post with a fantastic refinement to the Silverlight dynamic property binding. There is a much ......

More Adventures in MVVM First, I’d like to say: THIS IS NOT A NEW MVVM FRAMEWORK. I tend to believe that MVVM support code should be specific to the system you are building and the developers working on it. I have yet to find an MVVM framework that does everything I want it to without doing too much. Don’t get me wrong… there are some good frameworks ......

Tomorrow, I will be speaking in Grand Rapids at the Silverlight Firestarter. It is a one day event intended to get people bootstrapped with Silverlight. I will be giving the “Advanced Topics” presentation. I have decided to run it as a series of “Lightning Talks”. The idea is to give a lot of breadth so you know that the topic exists and move quickly ......

Part 1 After I explained my motivation for using YAML instead of XML for my data, I got a lot of people asking me what type of tooling is available in the .Net space for consuming YAML. In this post, I will discuss a nice tooling option as well as describe some small modifications to leverage the extremely powerful dynamic capabilities of C# 4.0. I ......

I recently gave a presentation on Prism at the Ann Arbor .Net Users Group. I have made my slides and demo available for download: Slides Demo Some interesting links associated with prism: Composite Application Guidance Composite Application Library Codeplex Site Great 4-part video series Another video series that David Giard pointed me towards ......

Thanks to all who came to the MVVM jam tonight. In case you wanted to see what a completed solution looks like, you can download it here. There are many tweaks that can be made, and it is certainly not the only solution… but hopefully, it helps to understand how the MVVM pattern can be applied. Next week (Wednesday, March 9th) , I will be giving a presentation ......

For those in the Ann Arbor, Michigan area, you might be familiar with the “Come Jam With Us” project. Every week, we get together for an hour and code on a particular topic. It is usually led by one or two people and the rest of the group codes along in order to learn about the topic at hand. It is a really great forum for learning new concepts and ......

Part 2 This is the first in a many-part series in which I will be writing about using YAML in the .Net space – particularly within C#. I will cover the whys, the hows, and show some tricks using the dynamic capabilities of C# when using YAML. I might even explore IronRuby a bit. Why YAML? I got the chance to sit in on four days of Ruby on Rails (RoR) ......
