Remarks

WindowsXamlManager is part of the UWP XAML hosting API. This API enables non-UWP desktop applications to host any control that derives from Windows.UI.Xaml.UIElement ) in a UI element that is associated with a window handle (HWND). This API can be used by desktop applications built using WPF, Windows Forms, and the Windows API (Win32). For more information, see Using the UWP XAML hosting API in a desktop application.

WindowsXamlManager provides a static InitializeForCurrentThread method you can use to initialize the UWP XAML framework on the current thread.
