I want to use wpf controls in my adxolform. I figured out I need an Element Host, so I added one to my adxolform. I changed the option show all in the toolbox so I can now see the wpf controls, but they're greyed out, how can I use them ?

Sorry if this seems obvious, I'm new to wpf and adx.

Ok I figure out how it work, you create a new WPF usercontrol in your project which hold the content of the form you want in outlook. After Creating your ADXOlForm, place a ElementHost on it, then you get a combo box that will let you choose which WPF UserControl you want to be hosted in your form.
