Hi there
I have looked at some of all the posts on wpf in this forum and it looks like there are some pros and cons for using WPF in Outlook.
For instance, I can see that drag and drop can give some troubles and also context menus.
Would you advise me to choose another approach than wpf?
I am going to build a database with Telerik gridview in wpf that I will host in Outlook 2007 - 2010.

With kind regards from Kenneth

Hi Kenneth,

I would recommend using System.Windows.Forms controls instead. However, you can use WPF too if you aware of the difficulties. Please read more about this in the Windows Presentation Foundation, Office 2010 and Add-in Express 2010 article on our technical blog.
