I've noticed hosting an ActiveX control in a (standalone) RadWindow doesn't work. Following the correct steps (as mentioned here
), the ActiveX control isn't visible. I put this in a test-project and when I host it in a normal WPF Window, I can see the control. Is this a known problem?
The same goes for an ActiveX control on a HTML page hosted in a WebBrowser. The HTML page will show the ActiveX control correctly in a normal browser, and in a WebBrowser in a WPF Window. Change that WPF Window to a (standalone) RadWindow, and the ActiveX control will no longer be visible.
I mentioned "standalone" twice. What I mean is when you remove the StartupUri from App.xaml and add the following in App.xaml.cs:
var mainWindow =
If you don't do this, you will see the RadWindow inside
a WPF Window and the Active X control still works. But seeing a RadWindow inside a WPF Window is strange.
So how can I get an ActiveX control to be visible inside a RadWindow?
