Hosting a WPF user control in MFC application and get Events RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have an MFC application with a dialog which contains a WPF user control (The WPF user control contains some buttons and other UI controls).

    I want to recieve events in the MFC application which occured from the WPF side.

    What is the right way to do it ?

    Here is how I host the WPF user control inside the MFC dialog (CHostDialog):

    HWND CHostDialog::CreateHwnd(HWND parent, int x, int y, int width, int height)
    	System::Windows::Interop::HwndSourceParameters^ sourceParams = gcnew System::Windows::Interop::HwndSourceParameters ("MFCWPFApp");
    	sourceParams->PositionX = x;
    	sourceParams->PositionY = y;
    	sourceParams->Height = height;
    	sourceParams->Width = width;
    	sourceParams->ParentWindow = IntPtr(parent);
    	sourceParams->WindowStyle = WS_VISIBLE | WS_CHILD;
    	Globals::gHwndSource = gcnew System::Windows::Interop::HwndSource(*sourceParams);
    	Globals::gwcMainControl = gcnew WPFToolUserControl::MainControl();
    	FrameworkElement^ myPage = Globals::gwcMainControl;
    	Globals::gHwndSource->RootVisual = myPage;
    	return (HWND) Globals::gHwndSource->Handle.ToPointer();
    ref class Globals
    	static System::Windows::Interop::HwndSource^ gHwndSource;
    	static WPFToolUserControl::MainControl^ gwcMainControl;
