How to get Form which is hosting this control so that I can close my form



Add to your WpfControl property

public Form FormsWindow { get; set; }

In your WinForm add event handler for ElementHost's event ChildChanged:

using System.Windows.Forms.Integration; 

public MyForm() {
    elementHost.ChildChanged += ElementHost_ChildChanged;
void ElementHost_ChildChanged(object sender, ChildChangedEventArgs e) {
