Rating: 4. Is it all you need to know about WPF? There are no new chapters in this book compared to the edition. This mirrors the fact that there have been no significant introductions to WPF recently. The second part of the book look in more detail at WPF. The first chapter looks at the standard controls one at a time with examples mostly in XAML. From here we move on to consider the application and some of the new frameworks introduced - binding, commands, resources and styles.
Part III is about drawing and animation. This is where you learn about the graphics elements of WPF - brushes, transformations, paths, effects and visuals.
The section finishes off with two chapter on animation. Part IV is about customizing controls using template and custom element. Part V changes the topic completely to look at data - mostly data binding both to simple elements and to collections. It also considers using a database with the view object. Part VI is on the topic of working with Windows i.
This is also where we learn about sound and video and 3D graphics. The first two parts are probably the most important and form a "core" WPF course.
After this you can dip into to topics as they become important in projects that you are working on - data binding, graphics and so on. If you want a huge and fairly complete treatment of WPF then this is your best choice. As there is no obvious time scale for the release of WPF 5 - assuming that there will be a WPF 5 - it should also have a good shelf life.
