messagebox not working

Sep 3, 2014 at 3:55 PM
hey Guys,

Iam trying to popup a simple messagebox..
Controller.Message("Hello World!", "Message title",
MessageBoxButtons.YesNoCancel, MessageBoxImages.Question); 
Iam tracing through the framework code and the viewname is always returned as null and it doesn't seem like it can render the dialog.. calls to FindView for instance just return nothing.

I've updated the metro theme to our own look, but i looks like I have all the pieces included. Are there some usual suspects in this? I pull in the 8 different messagebox theme files etc...

for my case, I would like to have it popover the shell... I found TopLevelViewLaunchMode and set that to Popup... and it makes the message dialog appear correctly... but it looks like it's creating a tab in the background which covers over my shell... My app only uses one tab in the shell which holds all the other views.. it is restyled to now show the tab header...

I just need to have the messagebox dialog appear over my shell...
