Helix and Avalondock

Jun 11, 2012 at 2:39 PM

Hello,

I am new to using the Helix Toolkit and have scoured the forum discussions to see if this has been raised before and couldn't find anything on it.   My question is whether or not it is possible to use the Helix Toolkit in combination with Avalondock.  I'm putting together an application that will have a similar look to Visual Studio with an Explorer Tree and Properties Editor docked on one side and would like a Viewport where the Code Editor is in VS.

Any thoughts or examples would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Dan

The OxyPlot.WPF.Plot control is a standard WPF custom control, and should work with AvalonDock. I have done some testing with AvalonDock 1.3, but not 2.0 yet.

If there are problems with the OxyPlot control, please report it in the issue tracker.

Objo,

Thanks for the suggestion.  I didn't know about the OxyPlot project and it may come in handy for some other things I am doing.  However and I am sorry if I wasn't clear in my original post but OxyPlot is not what I am looking for in this project.  It appears to be a 2D plotting component and I am looking at the Helix Toolkit so I can display and manipulate 3D models in a Viewport contained within an application that uses Avalondock.

If anyone has tried this before, I would appreciate any advice.

Thanks,

Dan

sorry, I didn't notice I mixed up my projects... :)

The same answer is valid here:

The HelixToolkit.Wpf.HelixViewport3D control is a standard WPF custom control, and should work with AvalonDock. I have done some testing with AvalonDock 1.3, but not 2.0 yet.

If there are problems with the HelixViewport3D control, please report it in the issue tracker.
