The Last Word

In this chapter, you toured the basic WPF controls. You considered several categories:

  • Content controls that can contain nested elements, such as the Label, the Button, and the ToolTip

  • Text controls that can store ordinary text (the TextBox) or a password (the PasswordBox)

  • List controls that contain a collection of items, such as the ListBox and the ComboBox

  • Range-based controls that take a numeric value from a range, such as the Slider and the ProgressBar

I'll cover many more essential controls in the chapters to come. In the next two chapters, you'll take a look at the most important top-level controls in WPF controls—the Window and the Page.
