I have to teach myself WPF in a hurry. Here are my first very basic but broad questions!
1. I want to be able to run some tasks in the background at all times (reading info from the serial port). Where do I even instantiate and start my thread? There is no more Program.cs...
2. Once I read the serial port I want to populate a List of classes and have the UI feed off of it and display the info that the background thread read from the serial port. Under WinForms, I'd just have a global reference to the same instance of my list and have the reader and writter threads lock it up and access it that way. How would all of this look under WPF? Just give me a brid's-eye view and I will research the specifics! I am working with VS2010 and Framework 3.5 but I can up it to 4.0 if I really have to!
