Hi Rafal,

ADXExcelTaskPane is a descendant of System.Windows.Forms.Form. So you add a WPF user control in exactly the same way you do this for a standard form:
- add a WPF UserControl to your project (see the Add New Item dialog) and populate it with controls
- build the project
- add an ElementHost (see the Toolbox) onto the Excel task pane and choose the UserControl in the Select Hosted Content dropdown
