    Q: When should I use WPF instead of Windows Forms?

    WPFis clearly more suitable for applications with rich media, but some people havesaid that Windows Forms is the best choice for business applications withtraditional user interfaces. I think this belief is based on first versions ofWPF in which many standard controls didn’t exist (such as TreeView, ListView,and OpenFileDialog) and a visual designer didn’t exist, making traditionalWindows application development in WPF harder than in Windows Forms. AlthoughWindows Forms still has useful controls that WPF lacks (such as DataGridViewand PropertyGrid) and at the time of writing has a larger set of third-partycontrols in the marketplace, WPF has compelling features even for traditionaluser interfaces (such as the support for resolution independence or advancedlayout)
