hi there,

what you need to do is add a refence to the project and then add an xml namespace decleration


if you had a user control named "Test" under a namespace "CustomControls" and the project name (assembly Name) is TestControl

in xaml you would do the following


<controls:Test x:Name="myControl" />

hope this helps
