Hi,

I am trying to get proper idea - how the value can be return from Popup window, a way, to get then this value in parent View???

 

WindowsManager`s ShowPopup() does not have any result value.

Taken from discussion below

ShowDialog.Of<MyViewModel>();

does not exists in 1.1 version.

What is the correct way to get some value from Popup?

Thanks for help!

Just add a property to your ViewModel.

Parent ViewMode available for PopUp`s?

Ok, guess i get what u mean.

Actually this functionality was needed to handle PhotoChooser task result and show it as modal window on top of parent.

Right now i have Parent ViewModel that creates an instance of dialog ViewModel, subscribe it to catch PhotoResult and launches task.

Basically, i see photo choser app, but when i select some image, it closes the choser app and also my dialog (after handeling result)..

How can i prevent my dilog from closing?

 

Thanks!
