    I need to develop MVVM WPF application on MS VS 2015 Professional. I chosen Catel as MVVM framework. I'll set up "DevCraft Complete" libraries set on my computer and use this libraries set in WPF application development. What is the best way to create such a Catel-Telerik WPF application?

    1) First create a WPF Application using Catel (Catel-format MVVM WPF application) and after add all necessary Teleric references to the project?


    2) First create Teleric-format WPF application and after add Models, ViewModels and Views folders to the project and add all necessary Catel references?

    Which one of the two ways above is the best way?

    Hello Eugene,

    Both approaches seem fine so I guess you could take the one you are more comfortable with. It is your personal decision whether you should start with the UI of the application or its models and view models.

    Personally, though I am not familiar with the "Catel" Framework in details, I believe it will be more convenient to start with setting up the MVVM Framework and eventually you can add the Telerik references at any time. On the other hand, initially setting up your application as Telerik UI for WPF project would give you the possibility to automatically add the Themes for your controls and the references needed.

    As the "Catel" Framework is a third party software, we cannot be sure of the exact result so I suggest you contact us in case you experience any issues during the setup.
