Embed xenko app inside wpf

Hi guys, I would like to create a simulator of our machine and to do so I need to embed the xenko application inside our already existent wpf application. Is there a wpf container able to wrap xenko app?
Thanks in advance.

It is definitely possible since that’s how the Game Studio works: it is a WPF application.

You could take a look at the sources and see how it is done. There are a few tricks and the integration is not without quirks.m but it “works”.

I am commuting to work without access to the sources (except briefly through GitHub). The following classes should get you started but you will need to do your own investigation:

Once you succeed, would be great to turn it into a sample or tutorial!

It is very easy.
For example, You can see how I hosted the game in a windows forms control.

namespace Xenko.CodeOnlySample.Windows
{
    class Xenko_CodeOnlySampleApp
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            using (var game = new CodeOnlyGame())
            {
                var form = new GameForm();
                var splitContainer = new SplitContainer();
                splitContainer.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
                form.Controls.Add(splitContainer);
                splitContainer.SplitterDistance = 100;
                splitContainer.Panel1.BackColor = Color.White;
                
                var context = new GameContextWinforms(splitContainer.Panel2, 500, 500, false);
                form.Show();
                game.Run(context);
            }
        }
    }
}
