  • Are you having problems? Here is an intro to drawing in WPF:



    You could draw your bottle using Expression Design and export it to xaml as well.

  • can you please provide pseudo code sample application

  • Could you be more specific?  The pseudo code for drawing a bottle would be something like "draw_bottle()" but I don't think that is what you are really looking for? Are you having trouble with xaml? What do you want the bottle to look like? Etc... please provide a few more details.

  • Thanks for you reply,

    This is my scenerio

    I had a pack with with bottle slot. first i need to show the slots when user click on the slot i need to show the bottle with the related information.

    i had the bottle and slot dimensions. i completed the first level(i.e) creating the pack slots. now the challenging part is when uer click on the slot i need to draw the bottle wpf(c# code) .

  • Does the bottle already exist as xaml? If it is a usercontrol you can just create an instance of it with new and add it to the current visual scene.


    For ex:

    this.LayoutRoot.Children.Add(new MyBottleClass());

  • If it isn't clear yet I don't understand what you are asking.

    Do you need to produce xaml?  Do you already have xaml? Xaml objects can be resized at runtime with rendertransforms.

    If you can ask a concrete question with details we can hopefully help you further.

  • Thanks for your fast reply,  Is there any way to upload an image to this forum, to have a feel how the bottle looks like



    Wednesday, September 1, 2010 7:09 PM
  • Not that I know, but you could just paste that into Blend or VS. I can promise that it won't be what you want. I just don't know what you want/how to help you.

  • How to convert Millimeter to pixel (WPF)

    Friday, September 3, 2010 3:10 PM
  • perhaps that helps you.

    mm = (pixels * 25.4) / dpi

  • suppose my path height is 30 mm how can i convert to normal height in wpf

    you also need  dpi (dots per inch) of the picture.

    -- Miseria solo trae miseria --

  • dpi is 96 points per inch
    Friday, September 3, 2010 3:44 PM
  • pixels = (mm * dpi) / 254

    (30*96)/254=11,34  mm

  • thanks let me implement and see the result, i will get back to u asap
    Friday, September 3, 2010 3:49 PM
  • (45.2*96)/254 = 17.08  but the actual value is 196

    i am getting wrong result, output render is very tiny.
