Hi Grzegorz,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

We have checked your sample and found that you have tried to add the WPF window, Usercontrol and WindowsFormsHost element in the DocumentContainer. In our DocumentContainer, you can add only the element which are derived from the Dependency object. But in your sample, you have tried to add the System.Windows.Forms.Usercontrol which is not derived from the DependencyObject, so it will not be added as a child of DocumentContainer. To add this as a child of DocumentContainer, you can host the Usercontrol inside WindowsFormsHost. You cannot add WPF window as a child of DocumentContainer, since window cannot be a child of any visual element.
