I am new to WPF and to Cinch. Interested in using a framework much like this to facilitate our WPF application.

We've got our WCF services pretty much implemented and just need a way of presenting some UI: enter WPF and Cinch.

Where do we begin? I've extracted the source zip. Couple of questions around that for starters:

What is the DefaultTemplate.xaml and UpgradeTemplate.xaml all about? Is that something I install into Visual Studio 2010? It provides a project type that I can pull a Cinch-based WPF Browser app?

"Out of the box" the WPF_Demo runs just fine. This is one view, we can come up with other views depending on our business needs?

So the key appears to be bootstrapping our typeof(App).Assembly?

CinchBootStrapper.Initialise(new List<Assembly> { typeof(App).Assembly });

I don't know what DefaultTemplate.xaml and UpgradeTemplate.xaml are, as far as I know these are not my files. Where are you seeing those.


I think best place for you to start is by reading all the Cinch articles over at codeproject. They explain everything about Cinch
