I work on a demo for an article where a winform hosts a wpf usercontrol with a ribbon.

There are wpf controls and ribbon controls in the toolbox and all was good until I wanted to add filedialog and printdialog.

How can I add them?

(I use VS 2019 Community)

What I have tried:

I opened the toolbox and on rightclick I can select wpf controls, but there is nothing like filedialog, open filedialog, save filedialog or print dialog.

What else can I do?

It shows that using a ribbon that requires "common dialog controls" is a poor example for your article about hosting a WPF "user control".

There are no "controls" for those dialogs.

You have to use the OpenFileDialog class in the Microsoft.Win32 namespace.

The PrintDialog is in the System.Windows.Controls namespace
