The Last Word

This chapter took a thorough look at data binding. You learned how to create data-binding expressions that draw information from custom objects, use change notification and validation, bind entire collections of data, and get your records from a web service. You also explored a range of techniques you can use to customize the display of your data, from data conversion and conditional formatting with IValueConverter to data templates and custom layout.

In the next chapter, you'll build on these concepts as you take a deeper look into validation and consider rich data controls like the DataGrid, DataForm, and TreeView.
