Composite Application Block (CAB) ItemsControl vertical stretch

June 17, 2009

So we just started using the Composite Application Block for a Silverlight project. Greate stuff.

Model View Presenter (MVP) – My first post!

January 27, 2008

Hello all and welcome to Mr. Rask on the web.

For this my first post i have composed a basic introduction to my favorite design pattern: Model View Presenter or MVP for short. The implementation presented in the article is pretty much exactly how i do it at the office office every day.

Source (C# 3.0 / VS2008): Crappy filehosting died, so if you want it just drop a comment.

Last but not least any feedback is much appreciated. So pretty please – with sugar on top – drop a comment if you find what you read here usefull (or even if you don’t – i just want to hear from you 🙂 )

All the best
