Thursday’s NETDUG meeting was a blast. There were a lot of great questions and I hope everyone walked away with a better understanding on how to get started with WPF. As promised I am posting my sample code and the web links I mentioned during the presentation.
Download the Presentation Source. This contains all the examples that I covered during the presentation.
Download the WPF ReorderableListBox. This is the custom WPF ListBox control that allows you to drag and drop items within the same ListBox to reorder or rearrange their order/position. The code is very unpolished right now and is not documented yet, but I wanted to go ahead and throw it out here so you could start playing with it. I plan on cleaning it up, documenting it, giving props to the blogs that helped, and writing a more detailed post on the ReorderableListBox control in the future, but for now play with it, modify it, and give me feedback. Maybe we should make it a CodePlex project.
- The WPF Toolkit is a collection of free WPF features and components.
- The WPF Ribbon is Microsoft’s free ribbon control for use in WPF applications. The CodePlex site for the ribbon is located here.
- Family.Show is a open source WPF application that allows you to build extensive family trees.

If anyone has any questions that were not asked during the presentation or would like me to elaborate on a certain aspect of the presentation, please feel free to drop me a comment and I will get right back to you.
