I got a lot of useful info on: http://www.tinyclr.com/forum/2/4315/#/1/msg41097 Thanks everyone. I felt this was a slightly different question and warranted a seperate thread.
My background is C#/C++ and WPF on desktops. I see from browsing the forums here that I can’t do WPF if I buy FEZ Panda II and Touch. My questions are:
- Assumming I really want to use WPF what FEZ (or other) main board and display should I be buying instead?
- Is it the Touch that’s stopping me from doing WPF or the Panda II. I think it’s the Panda II, but what is the limiting factor in it?
- Assumming cheapness gets the better of me (it usually does!) and I refuse to pay more money to be able to do WPF, how limiting will that be? Can I still have a simple x-y plot (300 or less data points), grids, customized buttons, and icons? Are the libraries pretty easy to use? I did see there was one free one and one pay one (spiral?). Or am I going to be doing low level graphics programming like in the pre-MFC days. Can it still all be done from C# as opposed to C++?
I’m comfortable with WPF and don’t necessarily want to spend a lot of time learning a proprietary library that is only relevant to FEZ. After all, one of the main draws of the .NET microframework as I understand it, is suppose to be, “you already know how to do this. Take everything you know from the desktop and apply here”.
