I am going to take a short break of blogging for a couple of months. The reason is simple: I have been working on a book about Silverlight 2 since September last year, and we are in a phase now where I need to concentrate on that exclusively, and put other activities aside. I might post the occasional article from time to time, but until mid-Summer, it’s going to be write write write.

As soon as I had my info page online, I asked Twitter to accept TweetMyPage as a Twitter application, and to mark the messages posted with TweetMyPage with “from TweetMyPage”. Note for developers: There is a form to fill on the Twitter API page. It’s really fast, and one day later I got the answer that it was accepted.
I have been in very much stress lately and hardly had time to post, but I don’t forget you, dear readers…
Anyway, this Thursday, I will be talking in a RIA conference organized by the Internet Briefing group here in Zurich, in the World Trade Center. My talk is titled “Ultra Rich Interactive Applications with WPF” and subtitled “When Silverlight is not enough…”. I think it’s going to be an interesting talk (but obviously I am partial) about the major differences between WPF and Silverlight, and the added richness that WPF provides. I am a big fan of Silverlight, but I have to admit that it’s nice going back to the amazing power of WPF sometimes, without having to worry about “is that feature even implemented in Silverlight”?
A WPF ListView is a possible replacement for a datagrid, when it doesn’t have to support advanced features like grouping or filtering of rows. If you use a ListView in your WPF application, and set the “View” property of this ListView to be a GridView.
