Just wanted to point out that since this feature request was submitted, another option for our use case could potentially work as well. If supported, we could also target the Xamarin.Forms renderers for the Uno platform, which support Windows 7. If the existing Telerik UWP renderers for Xamarin.Forms were updated to run on Uno in this mode, we could target those and would no longer need WPF renderers.

In our company we use DSL Tools to model the UI and generate the code automatically from models. We are currently generating the code for WPF for the Desktop version of the application. Now we want to generate the application code for mobile and tablet. For this we are going to use Xamarin.Forms but we have the problem that we have to create new .tt templates for the Xamarin.Forms XAML, so we have to maintain two different views. Ideally, use Xamarin.Forms for Desktop, Mobile and Tablet, with a single XAML, and with a single set of controls, the Telerik for Xamarin.Forms for WPF suit.

Yes, this is also very highly desired for our team. We always use WPF/Winforms applications to run our tests. Now that we have started created products in Xamarin, we need to use WPF applications to keep a clean and consistent code-base. UWP application isn't an option as we need to be able to do ad-hoc distribution very quickly to test users, who may or may not be running older versions of windows. Currently our WPF application doesn't run when adding telerik controls to Xamarin.Forms project. Is there any updates on this by the way?

Hi Jeremy,

Thank you for your input. We're having it in mind.

This feature is HIGHLY desired for our team. We normally deliver WPF based products - our customers use older versions of Windows and usually can't run UWP apps. This would allow us to share UI and app code between our desktop products and our mobile products, saving us time and cost.

Thanks for raising this topic Luiz. 

Xamarin.Forms support for WPF is still in preview actually, and far from official at this point. We are looking into this to see how it will develop. We will keep this item open in order to track demand for it.
