Dear All,

In my WPF App, I need to refer/invoke the c++ class from a different module.,into the current project.

Assuming, I am working in a <<MySolution.sln>> which has numerous projects, and one handling wpf GUI(MyWPFproj.cproj) here, I need to refer a C++ class albeit in different module/project., viz., (MyCPPProj.cproj) how could it be addressed in wpf.

since I am from MFC, If we need to refer a differnt dll, in our exe we use the Load Library and GetProcAddress constructs in InitInstance().,

but how is the methodology of the same in wpf, I am using MyWPFBasic.xaml.cs
with following,

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Input;

namespace Myproj.UI.Windows
public partial class MyProj:Windows

I am using VS2008 IDE for Developing WPF Application using WinXP o/s,SP 1.

Thanks in Advance,

With Regards,

Direct invocation between C++ classes and .NET is not supported, because layout of C++ classes is specific to the language and cannot be universally described as platform invoke.

Basically, you import only the static methods. You can wrap the functionality of the C++ class into a set of static methods, import them in .NET and wrap them in .NET class.

Then you have two options:
