Initial creation of controls is usually done using XAML, manipulation of control properties may not always be obvious to the unwary/impatient among us - particularly if we do not speak nerd.
So, these pages for specific controls aim to at least offer hints about
how you might achieve what you want. So far as I can I've tried to
ensure that the sample code actually works - which is more than can be
said for some of the examples in Nathan's "WPF4 Unleashed".
I've (arbitrarily) separated out "layout" and "normal" controls - more
to be done here as I learn about the usefulness of letting WPF/XAML take
care of window layout.
