Working with the WPF Designer
[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]
The WPF Designer for Visual Studio has many features to help you visually create user interfaces for your Windows applications. Working with the WPF Designer is similar to working with other visual designers, for example, the Windows Forms Designer and Expression Blend. You arrange controls and elements on a visual design surface, which represents a window in your application.
