Can I use WPF/UWP in script instead of WinForm?

I want to use WPF UI in a script because I feel that the UI of WinForm is a bit ugly. Is it possible?

I tried it once before and it said "System.Windows.Controls" could not be found.

It would have to be supported by .NET 4. I just use the controls available in .NET 4.

What's the best way to design a UI using Visual Studio to use with the C# script for Vegas?

@RedRob-CandlelightProdctns, I just add a new User Control (Custom Command) or Form (Script) in Visual Studio and then just add the controls onto the form that I need.

See the Custom Command series starting here:
