I need to add a MapPoint control to a WPF Grid

Posted on 2010-08-14

I used an ElementHost inside a WinForms application to hold a WPF control, which contains a Grid.  But I would like to add a MapPoint control to that Grid.

Can someone please explain how to do that?

Using Visual Studio Express 2010 I have not added the MapPoint control to the IDE, which I recall I did in the past for Visual Studio 2010.

Please let me know how to proceed.

I got this far:

- created a new Window Form
- created a WinForms User Control, and added a MapPoint control to it
- created a WPF

I see no event (which they discuss) called "Loaded".

I get it to compile and run, but the MapPoint control is blank.  Any ideas?

I found that I may not have been initializing the dialog properly and the MapPoint initialization was not taking place.

I'll get to the bottom of that in the next few minutes and post another question if needed.
