Create rich, flexible, and maintainable line-of-business applications with the MVVM design pattern Simplify and improve business application development by applying the MVVM pattern to Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Microsoft(R) Silverlight(R) 4. With this hands-on guide, you'll use MVVM with data binding, commands, and behaviors to create user interfaces loosely coupled to business logic. MVVM is ideal for .NET developers working with WPF and Silverlight--whether or not you have experience building enterprise applications. Discover how to: Dive deep into MVVM--and learn how it differs from other UI design patterns Build a simple Customer Relationship Management application you can adapt for your own projects Implement MVVM to maintain separation between UI declarative syntax and presentation logic code Create a Domain Model to define your application's business context Write dynamic code for the data access layer with the Microsoft Entity Framework and NHibernate Enforce complex data-validation scenarios using Windows Workflow Foundation 4 Implement MVVM using frameworks and toolkits such as Microsoft Prism Get code samples on the web For system requirements, see the Introduction.

Your expert guide to designing and building dynamic user interfaces Sharpen your application design and development skills using XAML—the declarative markup language used in Microsoft Silverlight and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). Led by two XAML experts, you’ll learn practical ways to build rich, interactive user interfaces with data integration capabilities and support for multimedia, graphics, and animation. This hands-on guide is ideal for Microsoft .NET developers and web designers alike. Discover how to: Control UI behavior and implement business logic with code-behind solutions Manage UI element positioning with the XAML layout system Use templates to customize UI elements—without affecting their functionality Apply different types of property and event systems in WPF and Silverlight Bind various kinds of data to your UI, and display them in the format you want Implement 2D and 3D vector graphics and animations Reuse control styles and properties to maintain consistency throughout your application

Developer s Guide to Microsoft Prism 4 Building Modular MVVM Applications with Windows Presentation Foundation and Microsoft Silverlight

This guide provides everything you need to get started with Prism and to use it to create flexible, maintainable Windows® Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Microsoft Silverlight® 4.0 applications. It can be challenging to design and build WPF or Silverlight client applications that are flexible, maintainable, and that can evolve over time based on changing requirements. These kinds of applications require a loosely coupled modular architecture that allows individual parts of the application to be independently developed and tested, allowing the application to be modified or extended later on. Additionally, the architecture should promote testability, code re-use, and flexibility. Prism helps you to design and build flexible and maintainable WPF and Silverlight applications by using design patterns that support important architectural design principles, such as separation of concerns and loose coupling. This guide helps you understand these design patterns and describes how you can use Prism to implement them in your WPF or Silverlight applications. This guide will show you how to use Prism to implement the Model-View-View-Model (MVVM) pattern in your application, and how to use it along with commands and interaction requests to encapsulate application logic and make it testable. It will show you how to split an application into separate functional modules that can communicate through loosely coupled events, and how to integrate those modules into the overall application. It will show you how to dynamically construct a flexible user interface by using regions, and how to implement rich navigation across a modular application. Prism allows you to use these design patterns together or in isolation, depending on your particular application requirements.
