RE: Content in WPF

| || 1/ Trying if I could change some controls properties at run time, I |
changed the Text property (Caption ) of a Button : Button1.Content
="Hello". When I tried this to the window : Me.Content ="Hello", it
erased all controls and write "Hello" on the top left corner.
What does that mean, and how can I change the Text property for the
Window like we do with forms?
The Content property usually means the main content of a control. In the
case of a Window, it means the controls contained in it so if you reset
the Window's Content property, it replaces the Window's main child,
which holds all of the other controls and everything disappears as you
Try changing the Window's Title property instead.

Window1.xaml which says " An assebly or ..." and asks to click to
The yellow band that says "Click to reload" means Visual Studio is
confused. If you click the yellow band, it will try to reload the XAML
code and display the interface.
Unfortunately it gets confused pretty easily and doesn't automatically
try to reload when you make changes to the code.
I'm not sure what your specific error message means. If you post the
whole text of the message, we may be able to give you a better idea of
how to fix it, although the messages are often pretty vague and you can
learn more by thinking about what changes you made last.
| ||3/ I have built many controls with VB 2005, that I used in my |
applications. Is there a way to use them with WPF or I have to rebuild
all of them?!
You should be able to host them in a WindowsFormsHost object. It's a WPF
control that sits on your WPF window and that can contain a Windows
Forms control. See these links:
It's not perfect but it should give you a relatively easy way to reuse
