    State of .NET - Windows Desktop Development in .NET 5

    *February 24, 2021 - Wednesday Start time: 1:00pm Eastern / 12:00pm Central
    Duration: 75 minutes (60 minute presentation, 15 minute Q&A)*

    We've created a series of State of .NET online events each focusing on a
    specific .NET topic. This installment covers *Windows Desktop Development
    With .NET 5*. While topics such as Blazor or Azure may be getting a lot
    more attention, Windows Desktop development is still a very important
    topic. Not just that, but with technologies such as WinUI, MAUI, and
    others, there is a lot of movement in this segment of .NET development.
    Join Markus Egger to take a close look at what you need to know to make the
    right decisions for your path forward.

    Topics covered in this event include:

    - WinForms - in .NET 4.x and .NET 5
    - Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) - in .NET 4.x and .NET 5
    - Xamarin Forms and MAUI
    - WinUI and Fluid UI
    - Electron and Photino
    - and more…

    *Note*: Only registered attendees will receive the live stream URL the
    morning of the event via email.

  • Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I have just watched the presentation of Markus Egger. Interesting for sure!

    A few remarks:

    1 .Net5 seems to have a significant speed issue. He was having a coffee waiting for some stuff to finalize. And the word "usual" in his explanation "it is usual only slow the first time" was not encouraging.

    2 I wonder why the folder browser control gets worse with newer technologies? The Win32 had an autocomplete textbox + a visual informative disk/directory view. Nothing like that in WPF, and Markus showed that going from .Net 4.x to .Net5 the browser converts to a FolderDialog which, as I noted with my software, confuses users as they expect files to display. I implemented it and a user of my photo software asked me why he didn't see any pictures? Turned out that using the folder browser (I programmed that exactly as he showed it to work in .Net5) was the cause, he expected files to appear there despite the clear Select folder button.

    Finally I offered in my WPF project a combination of an Open button using System.Windows.Forms.FolderBrowserDialog (without the Win32 option to type & autocomplete a directory). For that I have inserted a Winforms Textbox where you can assign that behavior in WPF with )in the XAML) a simple:

    wf:TextBox x:Name="ImagesDir" AutoCompleteMode="SuggestAppend

    Probably that was all required because Microsoft stopped investing much in WPF as he explained.....

    I think I am not hurrying to .Net5. It is probably neglected soon as well judging from the poor implementation of something like a directory browser.
