    I am new to Telerik WPF Controls,
    I need to convert some Silverlight stuff to WPF.
    I heard that "All the classes or controls in Silverlight has equal classes or controls in WPF".
    But when i am trying to do it,i was not able to find some similar controls for WPF.

    I will be greatfull if i get a mapping between the Silverlight and WPF controls.

    For Eg.
    (1) In silverlight,<HierarchicalDataTemplate> is in assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls
    but for WPF it is not there, may be due to <HierarchicalDataTemplate>
    is present directly in WPF.




    (2) in silverlight the folowing code is used what will be the equivalent code in WPF?.


            <radDock:RadPaneGroup x:Name="DocumentHostRadPaneGroup">

    Hi Basil Peter,

    Unfortunately we do not have an exhaustive with mapping between the different controls.

    Sometimes certain features may not be available for either platform because the capabilities SL and WPF offer are different.

    Also, some controls are not released simultaneously for SL / WPF. For example the RadDocking for SL will be available officially for WPF with the coming Q3 release.

    Generally base control parts like the HierarchicalDataTemplate are in a different namespace because they are built-in in WPF but for Silverlight we have implemented our version that matches them because they are not found in Silverlight.

    We will be happy to help you with guidance on converting something, but we do not have a complete list with items on how this can be achieved.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
