About this Book


This book follows the same style of my previous book "Practical C# Charts and Graphics". I emphasize the practicality of WPF graphics to your real-world charts and graphics applications and try to explain WPF graphics concepts using code examples. This in-depth book on chart and graphics programming in the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) contains a variety of ready-to-run code examples, which provide you with everything you need to add advanced charts and graphics to your applications. These examples teach you how to create various WPF graphics and charts, including the US flag, 2D charts, stock charts, contour charts, 3D surface charts, interactive charts, and 3D graphics models. The book uses code examples to clearly explain every step involved in building a variety of WPF chart and graphics applications.

This book and its sample code listings provide you with:

  • Complete, in-depth instruction on practical chart and graphics programming with C# and WPF. After reading this book and running the example programs, you will be able to add various sophisticated charts and graphics to your WPF applications.

  • Ready-to-run example programs that allow you to explore the chart and graphics techniques described in the book. These examples can be used to better understand how the chart and graphics algorithms work. You can modify the code examples or add new features to them to form the basis of your own projects. Some of the example code listings provided in this book are already sophisticated chart and graphics packages that can be used directly in your own real-world WPF applications.

  • Many classes in the sample code listings that you will find useful in your WPF chart and graphics programming. These classes include matrix manipulation, coordinate transformation, color maps, chart controls, and other useful utility classes. You can extract these classes and plug them into your own applications.
