    Using Loupe with WPF - Introduction
    In This Topic

    Because WPF includes the core .NET runtime, all of the general logging, performance monitoring, and metric capture capabilities that make the Loupe Agent work for other .NET applications apply with WPF as well.  You can log directly into Loupe, use it with Trace or Debug, or connect it up to your favorite log system.  In addition, there are a number of unique capabilities that are designed to provide additional capabilities with WPF applications.

    Unique WPF Capabilities

    The Loupe Agent includes additional capabilities that are designed specifically for WinForms and WPF applications.  These include:

     Adding the Loupe Agent to your Application

    Add the Loupe Agent from NuGet which will update your Visual Studio Project.  After adding the agent you will need to make a set of small code changes as well to ensure the best experience.  See Using Loupe with WPF - Integration Code for details.

    For complete information on configuration options with the Loupe Agent see Developer's Guide - Agent Configuration.

    If you don't see anything recorded by Loupe after adding the Agent, make sure you have at least one log statement at the start of your application.  This ensures the Agent gets initialized in a timely manner.
     Packaging and Sending Loupe Data from your Application
    The Loupe Agent provides a comprehensive set of capabilities to gather the session data recorded while your application runs and send it to where you can work with it to fix customer issues, understand feature usage, and drive your product development forward.  This capability is automatically configured as part of the Configuration Wizard, but you can provide an enhanced user experience by reviewing Developer's Guide - Packaging and Sending Data.
