Good book on C# (WPF) using VS2013 or 2015

Been programming in C and C++ a long time.  C# some....
I would like a book recommendation that shows how to use some of the components  as well as some of the advanced C# features using the IDE.
For example:
ListView - how to center text in a cell (WPF)
ListView - How to bold the text in  a column (WPF)

I feel like I know C# syntax well enough since i am experienced in C/C++.  
You may say just google how to do something like the couple examples above.   I did, but I see lots  posts with some XAML but it is difficult to see the big picture and doesn't show how it was created in the IDE.  I want more than just cut and paste, I want to use the PROPERTIES window to create it.  
Also, I wonder why there isn't a XAML topic here....   Is that covered in ".NET Programming"?

thanks!
