Super Shapes · The Legend of Zelda: Black Crown · Windows Presentation Foundation

What a great week!

Whee! I’ve updated all of my Silverlight and .net applications that I’ve posted!
Just to remind you, It is PDC week – the biggest developer event of the year!
I’m having a blast watching all the new videos at Channel 9 and the live stream.

They have shown some great new innovations on PDC so far.
You can find out what is new in C# 4.0 here.
Dynamic languages are going to be first class citizens in .net 4! Whee!

And… another great announcement:
The public beta of The Legend of Zelda: Black Crown is going public this week,
hopefully one day after the release of Microsoft’s XNA3.

Just to show off my (updated) Super Shapes application,
you can find information about the it here:

Super shapes are fascinating completely mathematical shapes that are created using the ingenious Super Formula.

Recently I wanted to give Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), the new WinForms, a go. I’ve created Super Shapes applications before using OpenGL and XNA, but neither had a nice interface nor many features.

Follow this Link to see how the program looks like. The user interface should be in English on your computer, unless you’ve also got a German OS like me.


  • simple creation of countless different shapes by simply adjusting the parameters on the right.
  • templated shapes to allow for a quick-start
  • saving & loading of shapes (stored in human-friendly XML format)
  • zooming using the mouse-wheel
  • dragging of the shape by holding the left mouse button
