    Embed the XAML Designer in custom application


    I just found the XAML Designer example in your sample projects and I really like that one.

    We are currently searching for a way to let administrative users of our software create custom input controls for some parameters. Our application will not compile any assemblies. Instead we want to instanciate the controls "on-the-fly". This is why we need some sort of XML/XAML store-and-load mechanism. The UI will not contain any logic, all data exchange is done by data binding.

    We already thought about using the .NET DesignSurface class. This will fit our needs, but it is an old component and I have some concerns about support for it in the future.

    Is it allowed to use the XAML designer in a commercial application for this scenario? If yes, under what license?

    Best regards

    Depends which version of the source code you want to take the designer from: SD 4.4 is LGPL, SD5 is MIT. So with 4.4, using our DLLs is free of restrictions, with 5 the source code itself.
