    ADVANTAGES OF WPF

  • Provides tight multimedia integration; thereby, allowing you to know about several independent technologies and use them together.

  • Serves to be resolution independent, implying shrinking, or enlarging the elements on the screen.

  • Accelerates Hardware, as WPF is built on top of Direct2D.

  • Serves to be declarative programming as WPF uses XAML to provide the layout of application objects and represent 3D models.

  • Deployment is easier because it provides various options to deploy traditional Windows applications.

  • Provides culturally aware controls implying static text in controls and transferring data for the String function.

  • Serves to be more suited than that of WinForms

  • Provides great support in the third-party control space for WinForms
