I want to use the SurfaceListBox that is provided by the surface toolkit for Windows Touch beta (win7) in my Windows Forms Application to be able to scroll the list using gestures on the touchscreen.
I found a lot on how to host a wpf control using the ElementHost Control in my Windows Forms Application. However, this doesn't seem to work with the SurfaceListBox. When I add the ListBox to the ElementHost:
elementHost.Child = srfListBox;
I get the Runtime Exception:
"A System.Windows.Application is required. Please initialize an Application before using this API."
So it needs a WPF Application instead the Forms Application.
I also tried putting the SurfaceListBox in a WPF UserControl and assigning the UserControl as a Child to the ElementHost. Same Exception.
Does anybody know a workaround for this? Or if hosting SurfaceControls in Windows Forms Application is possible at all?
