Can't display WinForms SE in Switcher Preview Image

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

I'm using the Actipro docking control, along with the WinForms SyntaxEditor, in a WPF app. I'm hitting an issue where the preview image in the switcher is always blank for the syntax editor. I have the SyntaxEditor within a WPF User control, where I've wrapped it in a WindowsFormsHost XAML element. I've been playing with OnSelectedWindowChanged in an extended StandardSwitcher class but I can't seem to grab any visual for the syntax editor. Is there a way to make the preview appear?

Thanks for your help,

Hi Craig,

Sorry but Microsoft has stated that VisualBrushes (which is what we use there) on WinForms content isn't supported. See this post for info:

The latest build of this product (v2019.1 build 0684) was released 16 days ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
