HP Consumer UI Toolkit

HP Consumer UI Toolkit
Client:
Hewlett-Packard Company
Employer:
frog design inc.
Target:
WPF
Delivery:
XAML + C#

Designed and developed a WPF application to be used as a reference library for all HP branded control styles designed by frog design. This toolkit allowed HP developers to download the source XAML to be used in other HP applications.

Project Highlights

  • Developed a reference toolkit, for use by HP developers, using the .NET Framework 3.0 and Windows Presentation Foundation.
  • Implemented UI designs in XAML and C# using Visual Studio 2005 and .NET 3.0.
  • Used two editable TextBox controls to allow on-the-fly editing of XAML for real time viewing of control styles.
  • Developed a download utility that would package all the selected XAML control styles and assets, then save the files to the developer's desktop for use in other HP projects.
  • Allows HP applications to maintain a consistent look and feel by using the same source XAML and control styles.
