We have multiple "programming models". Two basic models are most used:

- procedural coding (i.e. you instantiate our component in the code, and call methods on it), and
- Live Binding (using Visual Studio designer, you bind OPC data to properties of visual objects).

The procedural coding provides objects on which other models build upon. The procedural coding works in all .NET environments we know about, including WPF.

The Live Binding is for Windows Forms only. It should also work when a Windows Form container is placed onto WPF form. If you want to "animate" properties of WPF controls, you can always do so without Live Binding: Instantiate our component (typically, an EasyDAClient object, for OPC Data Access), call a method subscribe to OPC item changes, and implement a callback method or an event handler to process the incoming data and update the properties of visual controls.

Let me know if you need further help
Best regards,

I have a question related to your OPC Client Toolkit
Are Easy OPC client controls compatible with WPF?
