WPF stands for Windows Presentation Framework and we are going to see how quick it is to utilize Esri’s Mobile 10 SDK’s new ability to work in WPF. In this blog I am not going to go into depth about WPF except to say it is Microsoft’s (MS) equivalent to Adobe AIR. Say goodbye to WinForms and welcome to a whole range of slick animations, affects and all that other jazzy stuff you now expect from any Silverlight or Flex web applications. But with this blog we are just going to focus on the nuts and bolts of quickly standing up a mobile application designed for a tablet that runs a Windows operating system. Plus I will point out some gotchas I stumbled across along the way.
