WPF & XAML
Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) is a nextgeneration presentation system for building
Windows client applications.
Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) is
an XML-based markup language that is used to
implement an application's appearance declaratively.
It is typically used to create windows, dialog boxes,
pages, and user controls, and to fill them with
controls, shapes, and graphics…

How To…
Let’s Build It
7
Building the
Interface
To create interface fire up Visual Studio and create a new WPF project.
File > New > Project
8
Building the
Interface
9
Loading the
Dialog
[CmdletBinding()]
Param(
[Parameter(Mandatory=$True,Position=1)]
[string]$XamlPath
)
[xml]$Global:xmlWPF = Get-Content -Path $XamlPath
#Add WPF and Windows Forms assemblies
try{
Add-Type -AssemblyName
PresentationCore,PresentationFramework,WindowsBase,system.windows.forms
} catch {
Throw "Failed to load Windows Presentation Framework assemblies."
}
#Create the XAML reader using a new XML node reader
$Global:xamGUI = [Windows.Markup.XamlReader]::Load((new-object
System.Xml.XmlNodeReader $xmlWPF))
#Create hooks to each named object in the XAML
$xmlWPF.SelectNodes("//*[@Name]") | %{
Set-Variable -Name ($_.Name) -Value $xamGUI.FindName($_.Name) -Scope Global
}
What’s in a
Name?
<Label Name="Label1" Content="Label"
HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="68,38,0,0"
VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="197"/>
<Button Name="Button1" Content="Button"
HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="307,41,0,0"
VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="75"/>
11
Putting it
Altogether
12
Wire an Event
#EVENT Handler
$button1.add_Click({
$Label1.Content = "Hello World"
})
Launching
the Window
#Launch the window
$xamGUI.ShowDialog() | out-null
Fire the Script
Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted
Set-ExecutionPolicy : Access to the registry key
'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PowerShell\1\Sh
ellIds\Microsoft.PowerShell' is denied. To change the
execution policy for the default (LocalMachine) scope,
start Windows PowerShell with the "Run as
administrator" option. To change the execution policy
for the current user, run "Set-ExecutionPolicy -Scope
CurrentUser".
Kick off your HelloWorld script: .\HelloWorld.ps1
