I just cannot work this out, I know it is very simple if you are familiar with WPF.... I have a window and a user control both in the same Visual Studio 2008 project. How do I add the user control as a child in Window?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Window XAML
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<Window x:Class="TextBannerTestApplication.Window1"
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    xmlns:uc="clr-namespace:TextBanner;assembly=TextBanner"
    Title="Window1" Height="400" Width="1000" Background="Red">
    <StackPanel>
        <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal" Height="30">
            <Button x:Name="btn1" Content="Test 1" Click="btn1_Click" />
            <Button x:Name="btn2" Content="Test 2" Click="btn2_Click" />
            <Button x:Name="btn3" Content="Test 3" Click="btn3_Click"/>
            <Button x:Name="btn4" Content="Test 4" Click="btn4_Click"/>
        </StackPanel>
    </StackPanel>
</Window>
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
User Control XAML
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<UserControl x:Class="TextBannerTestApplication.UserControlTextBanner"
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    Height="300" Width="300">
    <Grid>
        <Button Margin="61,117,71,141" Name="buttonTest">Test 1 2 3</Button>
    </Grid>
</UserControl>

What do you mean by child of the window ? Do you want to define your user control inside the stack panel you have on your window ? Did I understand correct ?

If that is the case , I see you have already added reference to the user control in your window.
Just add this line after your btn4 to have it in your Window

<uc:UserControl x:Name="yourcontrol"></uc:UserControl >

It is the user control UserControlTextBanner that I want add the the window. This user control is in the same project as the window.

Nevermind, the upload is not allowing for some files in project. I will copy the code here.

<Window x:Class="TextBannerTestApplication.Window1"
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
        xmlns:UC="clr-namespace:TextBannerTestApplication"
   Title="Window1" Height="400" Width="1000" Background="White">
    <StackPanel>
        <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal" Height="300" Width="800"  VerticalAlignment="Stretch">
            <UC:UserControlTextBanner x:Name="MyBannerUserControl" Height="300" Width="300"></UC:UserControlTextBanner>
            
            <Button x:Name="btn1" Content="Test 1"  Height="30" />
            <Button x:Name="btn2" Content="Test 2" Height="30" />
            <Button x:Name="btn3" Content="Test 3" Height="30"/>
            <Button x:Name="btn4" Content="Test 4" Height="30"/>
        </StackPanel>
    </StackPanel>
 
</Window>
 
 
Usercontrol
 
<UserControl x:Class="TextBannerTestApplication.UserControlTextBanner"
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    Height="300" Width="300" Background="Black">
    <Grid>
        <Button Margin="61,117,71,141" Name="buttonTest">Test 1 2 3</Button>
    </Grid>
</UserControl>
