AutoCompleteBox: Now with 100% more WPF

25 February 2010

Thanks to the work of the WPF Toolkit team (and especially Patrick Danino), the February 2010 release of the WPF Toolkit includes as new components AutoCompleteBox, plus Accordion and Rating as well.

A WPF app that is running one of the AutoCompleteBox samples borrowed from the Silverlight Toolkit samples project, showing major airport names in a drop-down.

And a quick aside… when we began our Silverlight Toolkit journey a few years ago, we became immediate advocates within the organization for compatibility with WPF, often building our controls to cross-compile, even if we didn’t have an immediate shipping plan for the WPF builds. David sort of led the way here by offering his own unofficial gray market versions of his charting and data visualization controls for WPF.

It’s nice to see things get out there in a more official mechanism, I know of many people enjoying the new-and-improved WPF Toolkit.
