How can I render some graphics using XNA to a widget/control in a WPF app? Specifically, I don't need any WPF controls inside the XNA graphics window, I just want to put some controls around it for a level editor.

Nick Gravelyn explains how to do it on his blog.

Although, if it's just for an editor, you may find using WinForms is easier and better supported.

You can use reflection to snag the Direct3D render target handle and hook it up with D3DImage. I've done this successfully with WPF and XNA 3.1, but I had some issues with XNA 4.0 because they changed the surface format mappings. But supposedly other people have gotten it working with XNA 4.0.
