Tim Hibbard CEO for EnGraph software July 2007 Entries
In Jersey this week
I just made it to Philly (despite running late this morning and checking in 32 minutes before my flight) and met up with Kyle. He has been on a EnGraph crusade as of late, visiting six clients in the last two weeks. He writes more about it on his blog. We are visiting a client in Salem, NJ this week, adding new GPS units to their system and troubleshooting some existing units. Matt Strausz is joining us on Tuesday to help with the installation. It should be a good week. I'm looking forward to some ......

Becoming a better developer
Dru was kind enough to tag me on how I could be a better developer. I think that in addition to being a better developer, I also need to deliver better applications. We all have different reasons for our geeky ways, and mine is to create applications that save people time. So here is my list: Start giving more talks - I really enjoy giving my talks on and Real time GPS implications, but I'm not an expert on AJAX and most people find my opinions on GPS to be a bit "abrasive".

Real world desktop WPF applications - UI Validation
Intro to this series of posts. Some of the code I use for UI validation came from Paul Stovell, who is working on a WPF Element that acts like WinForms 2.0 ErrorProvider control. Paul's control didn't quite fit my needs, so I've tweaked a few things so I can provide visual validation in a generic fashion from my base class. All of our objects implement:Public Event InvalidProperty(string PropertyName, string ErrorMessage);Public Event Validated(object sender);Public bool IsValid; Our objects also ......

Real world desktop WPF applications - Data binding
Intro to this series of posts. There are a ton of posts out there about data binding with INotifyPropertyChanged objects in WPF, so I won't regurgitate what other people have already written. There is one point that I haven't see much clear documentation about that I would like to cover. Hosting data bound custom controls. Let's say we have a location control that is bound to a location object like so: <TextBox Text="{Binding Path=Address1}"/> <TextBox Text="{Binding Path=Address2}"/> ......

Real world desktop WPF applications
The last month or so, I've been wallowing in Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), trying to determine if it is the correct direction for our next version of our flagship software, ParaPlan. WPF is flashy and fun and bubbly, but there are not many examples of real world enterprise applications that are built around WPF. After much research, and significantly pushing back our deployment timeline, we decided to rebuild ParaPlan 4.0 using WPF for our UI. We were able to use our existing 2.0 UI framework ......
