I'm working on a simple WPF form to manage a specific business object. I'm following the instructions in Chapter 19 - Windows Presentation Foundation UI in the C# 2000 book, to setup my form. I have not been able to get too far with what is in the book.
Is there an update to this chapter in the new ebooks?
I got a little further with this form. This form is being used to add a new Store object. The store object has 2 string properties: StoreId and Name.
This form has 2 textboxes and 2 buttons. One button is for canceling and the other is for adding the new Store to the database.
I finally got the PropertyStatus controls hooked up to the new Store object. I'm currently stuck with the Save button. I looked through the samples, but wasn't able to find anything that looks similar to what I'm doing with this save button.
This is a multi-part answer.
First, when I wrote the 2008 book Micorosft still though the data provider model was a pretty cool idea. That time has passed, and essentially everyone is using some variation of MVVM or maybe MVP these days. The data provider support in CSLA 4 is a hold-over from that earlier time and will eventually be phased out.
Second, the CSLA 4 MVVM video series is essentially the replacement/update for the WPF content from the 2008 book - covering how to build a WPF or Silverlight UI using MVVM with CSLA 4.
Third, the Using CSLA 4 ebook series will include a book (planned as book 5) that covers WPF/Silverlight development using CSLA 4 and MVVM (I'll use Bxf as the MVVM framework).
This gives me a pretty good idea as to where to look for these sort of questions.
