private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    // Create the ElementHost control for hosting the
    // WPF UserControl.
    ElementHost host = new ElementHost();
    host.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;

    // Create the WPF UserControl.
    HostingWpfUserControlInWf.UserControl1 uc =
        new HostingWpfUserControlInWf.UserControl1();

    // Assign the WPF UserControl to the ElementHost control's
    // Child property.
    host.Child = uc;

    // Add the ElementHost control to the form's
    // collection of child controls.
    this.Controls.Add(host);
}
Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
    ' Create the ElementHost control for hosting the
    ' WPF UserControl.
    Dim host As New ElementHost()
    host.Dock = DockStyle.Fill

    ' Create the WPF UserControl.
    Dim uc As New HostingWpfUserControlInWf.UserControl1()

    ' Assign the WPF UserControl to the ElementHost control's
    ' Child property.
    host.Child = uc

    ' Add the ElementHost control to the form's
    ' collection of child controls.
    Me.Controls.Add(host)
End Sub

Remarks

Only one element can be hosted, but Child can have any number of child elements.
