managed DirectX user interface (ui) library suggestions?

Hi,

Can anyone recommend any decent .NET UI libraries that work [well with]
Managed DirectX? Preferably with C# source available, but this isn't a
must.

I'm currently checking out a lib called 'MCDX', which looks relatively
comprehensive at first glance. Any other suggestions would be very
welcome.

Cheers,
Aidan

PS. Advise a better group to post to if this group isn't appropriate...

WorldWind was written in c# using managed directx. I don't know what
they used, but it's open source, so you can have a look at it.

As it turns out, I've decided to roll my own. The DirectX sample ui
code isn't customisable for me (not enough OO principles!), and MCDX
doesn't support alpha blending (as far as I can tell).

I haven't checked what UI library (if any) WorldWind uses, but I have a
hunch they wrote their own.

Once this UI library is all done, I think I'll refactor it and put it
online somewhere - there's a gaping hole in the ".NET Managed DirectX
UI Library" market... :P

I hope you'll let us know when you put it online. Codeproject would be a
nice place to put it in
