     we are planning to use Spread.NET 6 with .NET 4 and WPF. Because Spread is only for

    WindowsForms we want to use the WindowsFormsHost-Control to embed it in our WPF Application.

    Are there any known problems in doing that? A first short test results in a NullPointException when opening

    one of the modal dialogs, that can be used for changing the appearance of a chart during runtime.

    I am not very sure how Spread would behave in a WPF application as it is meant for Windows Forms. But I tried placing a Spread in a WPF application using  WindowsFormsHost-Control, and it worked without any issues. I would request you to provide us with your sample, so that we can look into the issue further and if possible provide you with a solution. I am attaching the sample that I created, along with this this response, kindly have a look.
