WPF/E Checkboxes And Radio Buttons
Ever since I did the Reflection Builder application, I've wanted to spend at least a little time and come up with a way to do radio buttons with wingdings. I had played around at one point using the Path command to build a checkbox that I can change the color of the check with, but never did anything with it. Now is the time ......

Clipping Animated WPF/E Rectangles redux, plus going to MIX!
Really... it's ok to tell me if I've misspelled something or if I leave something off! Looking at my site today and realizing I had my URLRewriting hosed over, I also noticed I was missing some xaml on that last page :( In the course of getting the remainder of that fixed, I realized I spelled "Rectangles" wrong in the caption.. yowzer... So now the xaml is all present at Clipping WPF/E Animated Rectangles Another change I made tonight is my MIX Sidebar countdown timer now is the "I'm Going to MIX" ......

URLRewriting hosed for latest Clipping Rectangles article :(
Update March 21 am(still) ... I imposed on a good friend with ftp access to update my URL Rewriting file and it was indeed broken. It is now fixed and the original link works... whew!: Grrrrrr.... I made a few slight changes to the code for my site this morning, and when I published to the site, I apparently hosed over the external file for URLRewriting. It's interesting if it did because I haven't had this problem with it before. ......

Clipping Animated WPF/E Rectangle Objects
In the GlyphMap application, I used clipped sliding canvases as menus, then in my Samples and Code application, I used sliding panels as "Eyelids" for exposing menu choices. I thought explaining the clipping of those might be useful to someone, particularly since I had trouble with them the first time. I will add that during the building of the xaml for this article, I realized that the xaml in the other two above mentioned items has some unnecessary canvas declarations. I will probably NOT modify ......

WPF/E Application on-site for Samples & Code Page
I got tired of my WPF/E Samples And Code page being simply a table of links, so I did this application: I've been kicking around various ideas about WPF/E menus, but wanted to make this page be something fun to demonstrate another real application in WPF/E. It all begins life as a single blue-chrome ball that expands out, and then the various menu points are visible. I've been playing with the logic quite a bit to avoid nasty interactions and while I don't think there are any more right now, I consider ......

WPF/E createFromXaml Object Creation/Destruction
My GlyphMap Utility grew out of control once I started it, and although it covered a lot of topics, it really didn't lend itself to any in-depth discussion of anything. This is the first discussion of any of the topics contained in that application. createFromXaml is used so much in the GlyphMap Utility that I decided I should cover it first.Read the remainder of the article at: ......

WPF/E Weirdness, or Development in General
I keep having to remind myself of the 'basics'... I always tell new developers "If it worked before the changes you made and you're certain the changes didn't cause the aberration you're now seeing, then shut down and restart Visual Studio. If you still see problems, reboot the box. If the problems still exist, you're wrong about your changes not causing the aberration". This applies across the board, and for some reason I keep forgetting the whole of the process when working with WPF/E. When I was ......

Damage caused by uninsured, unlicensed driver - Edited March 13, 2007
Up until 8:55am this morning, I was driving a 3/4 ton Chevy Silverado Pickup with extended cab. I was stopped in traffic behind a 1 Ton Chevy pickup just East of 15th Avenue and Thomas, I got rear-ended by a lady driving someone else's van. The lady has no insurance and no license. This license plate was on my front bumper: The driver's seat now permanently reclines and is bent to the driver's right: And: The impact from behind was hard enough to not only rattle everything loose around the inside ......

WPF/E MIX Countdown Timer
I had entered the mixtify 'blog bling' contest and put a MIX tag and link on my blog. I didn't go the rest of the way and put something on my website because my whole idea is to avoid recompiling that thing all the time, but seeing the Sidebar gadgets today made me want one and since I don't have Vista yet, I did the next best thing and put one on my site sidebar using WPF/E (of course). This was very simple, but in the interest of exposing all the WPF/E I use, I figured I'd write it up: ......
