  3. Hi Matthias,
    I am a recruiter here in Utah and I am trying to find a C# / ASP.NET developer with experience in WCF and WPF. I work for a company called SolutionStream and we build custom applications for our clients. I was wondering if you knew of any WPF developers in North Salt Lake / Ogden areas that might be interested in a full time job?
    Thanks in advance for your help.

  4. Matthias,

    I’ve benefitted a lot already from reading just a few things you’ve written. So, in the spirit of good karma, I thought I’d leave this little tidbit, in the very unlikely event that you didn’t know it already. It just took me forever to figure it out. 🙂

    I couldn’t figure out how to use Blend’s UI to create a style property trigger that would change the z-order of an object (other than a canvas) when you mouse over it. It seems like Blend’s UI lets you do just about everything else except that. When I wrote the xaml directly (below), it works, but I can’t see anything in the UI that would indicate to me “aha! that’s where you assign the value!”.

    If this is of any use, then I’m glad to be able to submit something in exchange for the benefit I’ve realized from the information on your site.

  5. HOORAY TO YOU 🙂 I’m in the same position as you and it’s quite true that the tone of voice surrounding WPF development is quite software-developer-centered (SDC… gosh did I just coin something? 🙂
    Anyway, instantly added to my rss reader, looking forward to your posts Matthias!
