This sample shows how to use WPF layout features to arrange Windows Forms controls in a hybrid application.

Download sample

Building the Sample

  • Install the Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) and open its build environment command window. On the Start menu, point to All Programs, Microsoft Windows SDK, and then click CMD Shell.

  • Download the sample, usually from the software development kit (SDK) documentation, to your hard disk drive.

  • To build the sample from the build environment command window, go to the source directory of the sample. At the command prompt, type MSBUILD.

  • To build the sample with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, load the solution (.sln) file of the sample, and then press F5.

Running the Sample

To run the compiled sample from the build environment command window, execute the .exe file in the Bin\Debug or Bin\Release folder contained under the sample source code folder.


The SDK installs WindowsFormsIntegration.dll to the default folder %programfiles%\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\v3.0\. Use this path when you reference the assembly in your projects.

There is extensive support for this task in Visual Studio. For more information, see Walkthrough: Arranging Windows Forms Controls using WPF Layout Features.
