Hosting an ActiveX Control in Windows Presentation Foundation by Using XAML Sample
This sample demonstrates how you can host a Microsoft ActiveX control in a WPF-based application by using Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML).
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.
WindowsFormsIntegration.dll is installed by the SDK to the default folder %programfiles%\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\v3.0\. Use this path when you reference the assembly in your projects.
To build and run this sample, you must generate interop assemblies for the ActiveX control. Follow the instructions in Walkthrough: Hosting an ActiveX Control in a Windows Presentation Foundation Page Using XAML.
