WPF is the only common .NET technology that has no NLog targets.
Thanks for sharing the idea!
Do you mean https://github.com/NLog/NLog.Windows.Forms ?
That one is for WinForms, WPF has its own RichTextBox and other common text controls.
I think it would be very useful to have those as WPF is the way to go for C# desktop apps for a long time now instead of WinForms. I am really surprised NLog doesn't support any WPF targets already, quick Google search shows people need it.
Thanks for the feedback. At least the name of NLog.Windows.Forms isn't wrong ;)
I like the idea :) I'm not sure if we have WPF experience in the NLog team. I expected adding some basic support is done if a few lines. Are you interested in creating a prototype? We can help in how to build custom targets of course.
I am afraid I am not a WPF expert myself, we've just recently started working on a project where we decided to use WPF for the first time. I wanted to use NLog to log some info to the UI as we are used to, but then I saw there are no targets for WPF controls.
There is already some history with WPF RichTextBox https://nlog.codeplex.com/workitem/6272, there is even some NuGet package https://www.nuget.org/packages/NLog.Wpf.RichTextBox/, but not sure if these solutions still work.

If someone like to work on this, please do.
This is not planned by us.
