Vb net datagrid not updating

As a WPF developer for years I was recently concerned by the new direction chosen by Microsoft on its client platforms with the rise of the brand new Win RT framework.

And Microsoft has taken this into account when building Win RT because you can now use the whole HTML/CSS/JS stack, including frameworks like Angular and Knockout, to develop desktop applications; a strong sign confirming that web technologies are really becoming ubiquitous (after Node on the server).

In order to capture a part of the applications vendors revenues most of the platforms’ owners like Apple and Microsoft have created “stores” you must use to publish and buy applications.

The official WPF certification (70-511) will not be continued and it will expire at summer 2015.

This is a strong explicit sign given to developers that they should not invest more time in this technology and instead devote their time to Win RT which benefits from new dedicated certification paths.

First I’ll start by presenting the signs that are worrying me, and should worry you too if you are a WPF stakeholder.

As every Microsoft technical team the WPF development team owns a blog where the team’s members share their expertise on WPF with the community.

Instead I prefer to prepare for the Win RT certifications which should be there for some years.

If you remember the release of WPF 4, a large part of the enhancements were dedicated to Windows 7 integration like taskbar items customization (jump-lists, progress, overlay…).

He is replacing Steve Ballmer, who did not understood the new mobile market (first i Phone and Android) and is probably one of the reasons Microsoft completely missed the boat and is now fighting hard to get a place taking market shares to competitors (Apple, Samsung) percent after percent.

Contrary to his predecessor Satya Nadella’s global strategy for Microsoft is “cloud first and mobile first“, so exit the traditional desktop model, and again this is a very sane strategy.

On the tablets and laptops side, to compete with i Pad tablets and Mac Book Pros laptops, Microsoft has launched the Surface series.
