Today, in this article let's work out on WPF few important and new features that are available in version 4.0. So, some of the features that are going to be discussed in this article are as follows:

  1. Flow Document Reader
     
  2. Data Grid
     
  3. Date Picker
     
  4. Caret Brush
     
  5. Selection Brush

So, rather than studying the lot of theory stuff. Let's today play around with some of these tasks and will try to implement it.

1. Flow Document Reader

This new feature added to version 4.0 enables

ickerFormat.Long; dt.FirstDayOfWeek = DayOfWeek
dt.DisplayDateEnd = new DateTime(2011, 12, 31);
dt.SelectedDateFormat = Date
P.Monday;
dt.Width = 190;
Grid1.Children.Add(dt);
}
 
private void Window_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
