Dear All,

I have a call to the .net RIA service to get data in hte construction of my viewmodel which is assigned to the page using MEF.

My problem ios that the page is taking a long time, until the page is loaded, which I don't like ..

How can I let the page load first,then allow the data to be loaded later. ...

Thanks and best regards

Either load the data before you load the page while showing some form of loading screen, and/or use some form of threading to load the data.

Probably best for this is:
