Migration from Winforms

Nov 2, 2010 at 2:47 PM


We have a Winforms application that we slowly want to move over to WPF.

Currently, because it is using Crystal Reports it is built with VS2005 (Crystal's VS2010 support is only in beta).

We would like to be able to integrate this into a WPF application being built in VS2010. Will the toolkit's Messenger

utility work across Winforms/WPF and can we build it into a VS2005 dll?

Many thanks,

The Messenger *should* work fine in VS2005 I think. It relies on generics and WeakReference, so maybe you need to make sure that these are available, i cannot remember if they are. It has been too long since I did .NET 2.0...

You will need to copy the source code file in your project and build separately, the DLLs will probably not work.
