WPF Linkcollection for PowerShell

During the last time I played with some ways to present GUI from PowerShell. I spend some time collection links, which I want to share now.

First there are two toolkits between you can select.

WPK which is part of PowerShellPack and Powerboots.

WPK is created by James brundage
and it comes with some examples in the Modules\WPK\Examples folder.

PowerBoots is created by Joel Bennett (Jaykul) of
and when installed, you find the examples in ...\Modules\PowerBoots\Samples\Samples.ps1

Some Blogs about it:

Creating GUI with Powershell and WPF was possible without the aid of toolkits, even in the dark adges of CTP 2 and CTP 3. Code from that early time needs to be adopted to run today, but for the curious, you find interessting stuff in it too.
Thanks to Max Trinidad for his post containing a link to the old trasures.

and here is th eearly serie from James Brundage:

To make the examples run in PowerShell V2 you need help from the following posts

Look for WPF tag in PowerShell Team Blog

finally you may want to look at some general WPF links
