Your biggest single opportunity when moving to XAML applications is being able to help users find the information they need faster and more intuitively. This session shows a host of techniques, including typical sorting and filtering, using shapes and colors to help in data visualization, abstracting entire collections to single graphics for quick assimilation, and ideas for dealing with long lists such as favorites and lists for frequently used items. The session will also feature tips for designing the user experience for search, so you're headed in the right direction before you start writing your XAML.

You will learn:

  • About ideas and implementations for sorting and filtering data in XAML
  • About ways to use XAML features to visualize data the way your user needs to see it
  • The basic techniques for designing the search experience
