C# Question

No Main() in WPF?

I am very beginner when it comes to programming but I was sure that one of the universal rules was that an program starts with Main(). I do not see one when I create a WPF project. Is Main() simply named something differently in WPF?

Answer

It is generated during build, but you can provide your own (disambiguating it in project-properties as necessary). Look in obj/debug for an app file; I have (courtesy of "C# 2010 Express") App.g.i.cs with:

namespace WpfApplication1 {


    /// <summary>
    /// App
    /// </summary>
    [System.CodeDom.Compiler.GeneratedCodeAttribute("PresentationBuildTasks", "4.0.0.0")]
    public partial class App : System.Windows.Application {

        /// <summary>
        /// InitializeComponent
        /// </summary>
        [System.Diagnostics.DebuggerNonUserCodeAttribute()]
        public void InitializeComponent() {

            #line 4 "..\..\..\App.xaml"
            this.StartupUri = new System.Uri("MainWindow.xaml", System.UriKind.Relative);

            #line default
            #line hidden
        }

        /// <summary>
        /// Application Entry Point.
        /// </summary>
        [System.STAThreadAttribute()]
        [System.Diagnostics.DebuggerNonUserCodeAttribute()]
        public static void Main() {
            WpfApplication1.App app = new WpfApplication1.App();
            app.InitializeComponent();
            app.Run();
        }
    }
}
