C# 4.0 New Features Videos

November 25, 2009

Recently, I’ve given several sessions on “What’s new in C# 4.0?” in an MS Open House and the Nes Tziona User group. For those unable to attend, or just want some refreshing, I’ve created 3 videos on the main C# 4 features (“Optional and named arguments”, “dynamically typed objects” and “generic variance”). You can watch those on the Hi-Tech TV web site. Enjoy!

WPF Control Extensions with Attached Properties

November 2, 2009

Sometimes we need some new functionality from a basic control. One way to go about it is to create a custom control and add that functionality. However, sometimes creating a new control is an overkill, especially when no new behaviour is actually needed. Perhaps some new way of presenting or drawing the control is all that’s needed. The problem is that we may want more properties on the control, but we don’t want or need to actually extend it (i.e. derive from it). For example, suppose we want to create a button with one of several images...
