I have a realy big problem i implemented a windows form application ta=hat is supposed to edit the syntax of lin to sql and since your sample in windows form does not support linq i downloaded the wpf sample.

I 'm trying now to call ActiproSoftware.Windows.ProductSamples.SyntaxEditorSamples.Demo.DotNetAddonCSharpEditor.MainControl  of wpf sample in a windows form. i tried the design way and when adding the wpf control to the element host an error occured saying that the source may not have a constructor so i tried with code:

ElementHost elhost = new ElementHost();
elhost.Size = new Size(400, 300);
elhost.Location = new Point(4, 12);
ActiproSoftware.Windows.ProductSamples.SyntaxEditorSamples.Demo.DotNetAddonCSharpEditor.MainControl wpfctl = new ActiproSoftware.Windows.ProductSamples.SyntaxEditorSamples.Demo.DotNetAddonCSharpEditor.MainControl();
elhost.Child = wpfctl;


i used element host but i get an exeption  in this line    <docking:ToolWindowContainer  of the xaml file

it says :  'La valeur fournie sur 'System.Windows.Baml2006.TypeConverterMarkupExtension' a levé une exception.' numéro de ligne '135' et position de ligne '22'.


 what shoud i do

If you can please put together a small sample project that reproduces your issue and email it over then we can take a closer look. Be sure to remove any executables or change the extension of the zip file to ensure it gets past our email filters.
