PrimalForms and WPF

Post by sysadmin267 » Tue Jan 19, 2010 11:18 am

Are there any plans to support designing WPF GUIs with PrimalForms? Seems almost a silly question given the product's name, but I thought I should ask as I'm interested in it.

WPF is basically based on DirectX instead of Windows Forms or the good old Windows API. That is a great thing for multimedia applications, games etc. where hardware acceleration for graphics operations is pretty much required.

For administrative user interface that you create with PowerShell there seems little application or need for WPF.

I wouldn't go as far as saying we will never do that, but it is unlikely that we will launch that in the next few months.
