XAML-based technologies are a great match for applications that need highly dynamic user interfaces. Healthcare and education are two example domains that need to gather information from the user that often can’t be determined to runtime. This session shows a basic design for getting information from a database to build a dynamic interface in WPF or Silverlight, and shows how the binding and templating capabilities of XAML make such a system dramatically simpler than it would be with earlier technologies. You’ll also see how to get styling and skinning capabilities from a database and apply them on the fly, and learn how to inject XAML into a running application.
