I do understand it.

If you try to program WPF the same way as you would WinForm etc, then WPF appears to be extremely tedious and difficult to work with. When learning it, I recall swearing at the treeview - I just wanted to set an item to selected and it took quite a lot of code to do it.... I could not simply walk the tree nodes, as they would not be created before expanding - and they would be created after the call to expand returned, meaning I had to walk the tree one level at the time, queuing the next expansion level on the dispatcher with low priority...

... Then I replaced all that complicated code with databinding on IsSelected to a boolean in my ViewModel Laugh | :laugh:

Now I am used to it, I find anything else tedious. Happy I invested the time to learn WPF - but if you "just need a UI right now" and am not already familiar with MVVM then I can see where the frustration comes from.
