Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone has implemented a Popup (<Popup></Popup>) as a region in a desktop app?

Hi Paul,


The following threads deal with a similar situation, and provide possible approaches to show a view in a popup region:

·         Popup "View" - Silverlight (it says Silverlight, but it also works with WPF)

·         Showing a view in a region vs a modal dialog


Please let me know if this helps.

The stock trader RI sample implements a popup using a customized regions adapter.

Please let me know if this helps.

Thanks, I ended up building a Popup Region Adapter from scratch and seems to be working very well, I'm currently building up a style that includes a close button etc.  I do have a bug to resolve, basically if a view in the popup region has a tabcontrol being used as a region I get some really weird rapid flickering.  I would like to share the Popup Region Adapter with everyone, is there a good place I can post it, maybe contrib project?

Again thanks.

Hi Paul,

I'm very interested in your Popup Region Adapter. I'm trying to build one for the Window control from ComponentOne and honestly I don't know where to start from !
To inject my views into popups I placed a ContentControl inside the popup. It works but it is defenitively not the way to do it ! I've tried the same "trick" with the C1Window from ComponentOne but I, obviously, got some errors. I know I have to build a Region Adapter but, again, don't know really where I'm going to...

Is there anyway I can obtain your source ?

Could you share your popup region adapter source?  it would be extremely helpful.
