Trouble with WindowsFormsHost

I am trying to get a MapPoint control displayed inside a WPF page and the instruction page has left me confused.
http://www.mapforums.com/wpf-mappoint-control-7768.html

I have done everything up to (and including) creating this XAML:
<WindowsFormsHost x:Name="zoneAx" Canvas.Top="60" Canvas.Left="10" Width="780" Height="300">
</WindowsFormsHost>
 
and it compiles.  But I do not understand whether I should put something inside these tags, or if the name "zoneAX" must match the name used for the WinForms User Control.

Also, there is no "Loaded" event, so I have not completed the last 2 steps.


I would just love to see someone string with WPF explain how it all should fit, or even try and do it themselves by using the free MapPoint download.

Trial MapPoint (full version)

Hope to hear from you.  I am stuck and the project deadline would force me to not use WPF.

:(

Thanks,

The WindowsFormsHost  is a container, you do indeed need to add the child component:

e.g.

<WindowsFormsHost x:Name="zoneAx" Canvas.Top="60" Canvas.Left="10" Width="780" Height="300">
     <me:UserControl1 x:Name="wfuc1"></me:UserControl1>
</WindowsFormsHost>

Or by in rumtime:

     zoneAx.Child = new UserControl1();
