Posted in .NET | WPF at Tuesday, August 15, 2006 9:09 AM Pacific Daylight Time

I'm starting a new project where we will be using Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). I've done very little work with WinForms in the past, but from what I understand the Composite UI Application Block (CAB) is the way to go for WinForms development. I've also seen a few posts about integrating the two using crossbow. However, I don't want to host WPF inside of WinForms, I want to use pure WPF.

So does WPF replace CAB as a UI framework or are there things in CAB that WPF is missing?

I haven't been able to find much on the subject so far. I'm just getting started on my project and still learning the WPF basics (and some CAB basics), so it is certainly possible that I'm just missing the obvious answer. Any feedback or suggestions are welcome...

It looks like microsoft isn't really supporting / building a solution today what we really need to do as a community is to open source a CompositeUI.WPF assembly that will do everything the CompositeUI.WinForms assembly does today.

Any takers?

I'm interested. Maybe we need to start a CodePlex site for it.

I'm curious if there are things in WPF that would eliminate some of the complexities of the CompositeUI.WinForms stuff.

Don't know if you guys started that codeplex project, but I have my own "pure" WPF layer for CAB implementation well underway. Details + download here: http://kentb.blogspot.com/2006/10/wpf-cab.html
