Great post and it illuminates another topic about this whole UI (WinForms, XAML, etc) thing.

For many years, we developers could be completely ignorant about graphic design -- and it was great.
We could take the basic controls and drop them on a form and we got this standard look that worked.
Sure, there were tweaks we could do but basically there was a nice standard look created by this.
We never looked at the designer files -- okay, rarely. We just let windows and controls be windows and controls.

Then, with WPF, XAML all of a sudden we have another layer of technology to think about very specifically.

It's really all just more work.
Sure, people would say you get more control over everything, but it's also more work.
And it's work related to graphical elements. We aren't graphic designers or HFE (Human Factors engineers), we are devs!!! Laugh | :laugh:
