Duration: 17 minutes
Summary: In the previous videos we talked about the container controls. We saw the different containers that we can work with and the benefit of each (Grid, WrapPanel, DockPanel,…). Now, we will take a step back to learn more about the standard controls (the controls that we use in our day to day development). We will talk about the buttons, borders, check boxes and radio buttons. But of course these controls do not live alone in an application. They need container controls. So we will start first by creating stack panels and grid panels. Then we will add the standard controls to these containers. We will discuss the three states of a checkbox. And also how to set the group names of radio buttons so that we can have many radio button groups on the page. Finally, we will add an ellipse to the mix and add events to the buttons that can apply different properties to the ellipse.
Methodology of the development of example: Good coding standard and simplified design to illustrate the key points.
