[Ironpython-users] Integrating a WPF IPy program with C#

I got it sorted in the end. I’ll post what I did for completion.

To run programs that depended on WPF, two things were needed.

First, had to load the wpf dll manually into the IronPython engine’s runtime.

var wpf_path = @"C:\Program Files (x86)\IronPython 2.7\DLLs\IronPython.Wpf.dll";
var wpf_dll = Assembly.LoadFile(wpf_path);

Secondly, make the main function a STA Thread. I put this just before Main’s definition.

static void Main(string[] args)

Hope this helps anyone in the future,

It might help if you provide some code in a gist or something. Without that, its going to be difficult for anyone to help.

Hi IronPython users,

I’ve created a C# program that runs an IronPython script.
The script contains a GUI built in WPF.

When I call it using the IronPython Engine in C#,
I get the following error: “ImportError: No module named wpf”

I’ve pointed the Engine to the system path.

System.dll and mscorlib.dll have been loaded using the following code:

Does anyone know where I’m going wrong and how I can sort out this import?

I’m on IPy 2.7.4.
