Column Auto-Flow In WPF
Something that HTML doesn’t have, which has always intrigued me (as being such a ridiculous limitation), is auto-flowing columns, such that when text fills up a table column it would cascade to the next column.
This is something that’s possible in Windows Presentation Foundation (but unfortunately not WPF/E). Not only that, but with coding techniques as you resize or zoom, you can change the number of columns at runtime to ensure readability.
A good video of this is here:
Another slick feature demonstrated (@ 00:14:00) is the OpenType typography implementation where you can choose from multiple different versions of the same character in order to make a particular letter or character more or less splashy, yet it’s still the same font. Here is an overview of its implementation.
