Visual Studio 2017 & More in UI for WPF and Silverlight SP1_870x220

Simpler Visual Studio 2017 integration leads the way in our latest service pack upgrades to our UI for WPF and UI for Silverlight developer toolsets.

The R1 2017 service pack update to our first release of the year for UI for WPF is now available for download.

As usual the service pack version of the suites includes a bunch of fixes and improvements, from Visual Studio integration to MVVM to bug fixes and more. You can review the full list in the Release History.

Let me start off by mentioning a few of the changes that I am sure you will benefit from:

UI for WPF Integration with Visual Studio 2017 Is Now Part of the MSI Installers

Integrating UI for WPF in the VS 2017 toolbox is now extremely easy. Just install UI for WPF through the installer and start exploring the suite with all the VS 2017 features.

Update in ViewModelBase class

Following our clients' requests we've included the CallerMemberName attribute in our ViewModelBase implementation (for easier usage) and have exposed the new RaisePropertyChanged method in the Service Pack.

The change is available only for .NET 4.5 version of our binaries, as the attribute is not present in .NET 4.0.
