What is Family.Show?
For a hobby that revolves around dead people, genealogy is remarkably popular: it's the fastest growing scene in North America. And a perfect study for our first Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) reference application.
Our designers employed every trick in the WPF book– styles, resources, templates, data binding, animation, transforms– to present an innovative visualization of the classic family tree, freeing our developers to concentrate on behind-the-scenes
features like XPS, Windows Vista "light up", and ClickOnce for WPF.
Family.Show was developed for Microsoft by Vertigo Software. For more information on the project and to see other samples of their work, you can visit
