Like any graphic user interface engine, Windows Presentation Foundation, a collection of rich APIs which provide appropriate functionalities for building user interfaces in .NET 3.0, has some ways to handle events.  End users interact with user interfaces and have a wide range of mouse or keyboard events to deal with user interface in order to choose items and fire events.  Then developer's code should define appropriate event handlers to handle these events.  Windows Presentation Foundation, in conjunction with XAML, comes with several ways to handle events and provides rich APIs to work with them.

In this article I want to give an introduction to events in Windows Presentation Foundation and a brief description of related topics in it.

Thanks Sam,

But if I can remember correctly, MSDN Wiki wasn't available when I wrote the first part of these tutorials to add it to introduction article because it was before RC days.

However, it was better to leave this comment there but thank you for sharing it with others.

Thanks Mohammad,

I tried to cover fundamental concepts for those who only want to have a background but surely you need a book if you want to work professionally on WPF and XAML.

Thanks again :-)
