WPF: The Lost Controls

WPF is a nice GUI framework, but it lacks some common functions and controls. I needed them, so I created them, and here I share them with you. The controls and control-related classes I have included are:

There are also classes for registering file type associations and for making a program start with Windows, and a number of very useful converters.

WPF: The Lost Controls's license is Zlib-style.
