Adding a User Control to a Window all in the same Visual Studio project

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?

            <Button x:Name="btn3" Content="Test 3" Click="btn3_Click"/>

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 >

        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>
