  • Andrew Troelsen


In this chapter we’ll examine the graphical rendering capabilities of Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). As you’ll see, WPF provides three separate ways to render graphical data—shapes, drawings and visuals. Once you understand the pros and cons of each approach, you will start learning about the world of interactive 2D graphics using the classes within System. Windows. Shapes. After this, you’ll see how drawings and geometries allow you to render 2D data in a more lightweight manner. And last but not least, you’ll learn how the visual layer gives you the greatest level of power and performance.
