What?

This project contains a set of generic binding converters that can be used in most any WPF (or Silverlight) application.

Why?

Just about every non-trivial WPF application requires some custom binding converters. A set of dependable, general-purpose converters greatly reduces the number of converters that you must write yourself.

Where?

Documentation, binaries, and source for WPF Converters can be downloaded from the releases section. WPF Converters is also available via NuGet:

WPF Converters on NuGet

How?

<TextBox x:Name="nameTextBox"/>
<TextBlock>
    <Run>Your name in upper case is </Run>
    <Run Text="{Binding Text, ElementName=amountTextBox, Converter={con:CaseConverter Upper}}"/>
</TextBlock>
Please download the documentation for detailed explanations of every converter, along with examples of use. The source code download also includes sample projects for both WPF and Silverlight.

Who?

WPF Converters is currently developed solely by Kent Boogaart.
