I have a  C# written calculator program in Windows Form that I wish to convert to WPF. I was wondering if there is a way to convert from Windows Form to WPF, or would I have to re-write the calculator coping and pasting its code

Seriously, WPF is a completely different paradigm. You *could* rewrite an application to look exactly like it did in winforms, but what would be the point? Winforms isn't going anywhere soon, so you'd gain no benefit. Now, if you rewrote it to be scalable, more interactive, etc., you'd have a reason for the rewrite. It takes time for an experience winforms developer to change their thinking about UI design to fit in with what WPF brings to the table. It will be a long time, I'm sure, before truly flexible UIs become common place.
