Chapter 5. Content Controls

WPF provides a nice assortment of controls that let the user view, modify, and otherwise interact with a program's data. This chapter describes one group of those controls: content controls.

Content controls are primarily intended to hold content that the user should see. They display something that the user should view but generally won't modify.

In contrast, Chapter 6 describes layout controls that arrange the controls that they contain, and Chapter 7 describes user interaction controls that let the user interact with the application.
