MFC and win forms integration

Hi,

   I need to add a render area in my windows forms application. The application that forms the render area is a MFC application. Please let me know if this integration is possible and if it is where i can find more information regarding the same.

cheers!

It is possible to integrate the two if you make your MFC application into an ActiveX/COM control.  That way you can add it to a windows form application just as you would any other control.

Adding MFC ActiveX Cotnrols to Windows Forms:

Hope this helps.
