    Question WPF or WinForms?

    Hey guys,

    Is their a reason to choose WPF over WinForms? I've already done my research, but this is the only .NET Forum I visit, and would like some point of views. I guess I want to know, which one is the future?

    Thanks.

    I asked this before and was told WPF replaced WinForms. A side benefit is that while learning WPF you are also learning Silverlight.

    Thanks for the response. Yeah, I was basically told the same thing on countless articles I've read. Just wanted your guys opinion. One of the things I like about WPF, is the separation of code into tiers, and I hate GUI Interfaces. Drag-and-Drop was crap in my eye. I want full control. I completely forgot about the WPF/Silvelight connection, as you are using XAML for both platforms. Makes learning Silverlight easier, but I will wait till it's more mature before using, as it took Flash to get to v5 before becoming useful.

    Now, to find a good book!

    Thanks again.

    I was looking at this one but I'd have to update to VS2010 first.
