Hi Klaus!

You can get it in SCSF Source\Blocks\CAB\CS\Source\CompositeUI.WinForms\Visualizer folder

Also, in the SCSF Contrib project you can download the WPF CAB Visualizer (CAB Visualizer using WPF).

For those who don’t know what the visualizer is, here’s a quote from SCSF’s help doc:

The CompositeUI Application Block includes a feature called the Visualizer that allows you to view the internal workings of a Composite UI Application Block application as it runs. This can help you to develop and debug your applications, as well as providing useful views of the application's architecture. To see the visualizations that are provided with the Composite UI Application Block, see the CompositeUI.Visualizer project.

You enable Visualizer by adding one or more visualizations to the main application's App.config file.
Edit the App.Config file for the application to include the <visualizer> section, adding one <add> line for each visualization you require.

<configuration>
    ...
    <CompositeUI>
        <visualizer>
            <add type="MyVisualization, MyVisualizationProject" />
        </visualizer>
        ...
    </CompositeUI>
    ...
</configuration>


Hope it helps!
