Arrow Chapter 5 P184

The book advises that following code is added to "ThisAddIn"

XAMLHost ctrl = new XAMLHost();
string ctrlTitle = "Product Data";
Office.CustomTaskPane ctp;

private void ThisAddIn_Startup(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
ctp = this.CustomTaskPanes.Add(ctrl, ctrlTitle);
ctp.Visible = true;
ctp.DockPosition = Microsoft.Office.Core.MsoCTPDockPosition.msoCTPDoc kPositionRight;

When I tried this I got the follwoing error.

The best overloaded method match for 'Microsoft.Office.Tools.CustomTaskPaneCollection.A dd(System.Windows.Forms.UserControl, string)' has some invalid arguments

Anyone else got this error.

Any help would be appreciated.

Default Answer?

Is there an answer to this question?

The Office.CustomTaskPane will not take a XAMLHost control as a parameter. It will only take a Windows.Forms.UserControl.

Is there an errata page or code update?

Please let me know.
