I'm a newbie at the world of WPF.
As a starting point/exercise, I've taken an existing WPF app (with subsequent customized controls) and
converted it to a class library. The library (dll) build without an warning/error messages.
I've trying to embed a control from the class library inside a window/control in my .Net winforms application.
I'm using the ElementHost control . The goal is to host the WPF control within the ElementHost control.
This piece compiles and looks fine.
However when I run my application, I get the following exception:
"'Set property 'System.Windows.ResourceDictionary.Source' threw an exception.' Line number '15' and line position '18'." string
Systeim.IO.IOException --> "Cannot locate resource 'dictionaries/brushes.xaml'." string
The Class Library contains a couple of xaml resources that are shared amongst the WPF controls.
They are part of the Class Library's VS solution/project. I'm assuming that they get built into
the Class Library/DLL, otherwise my Class Library would not build.
I noticed that the "Exe" version had an "App.xaml" file which had the following section defined:
<ResourceDictionary Source="ResourceDictionaries/Brushes.xaml" />
. . .
What am I missing here?
Does the Class Library contain some sort of similar definition/construct?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I'm trying to throw together a quick demo and have already been working on this issue for several hours.
Thanks in advance,
