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>
