Hello All,

I know everyone is busy with normal work and what not... I am looking for a great example/implementation of the DialogService and NavigationService in a plain ole WPF desktop application. Currently in Visual Studio 2015 using MVVM Light 5.2 and C#. Does anyone have or know of one that I could look at to help me along the path of getting this injected (yes pun intended :-) ) into my application. I searched the past discussions and there was a query not quite a year ago (Dec 17th, 2015), but nothing since, so that didn't help out too much.

Thanks in advance,

I just worked on a cool project in WPF and implemented a Nav and Dialog service. I will extract them and post as a sample.

Take care

Hi Laurent,
I too am trying to find a decent example of this. I have followed the Pluralsight course but that seems to be geared towards Windows Phone. Any Luck with extracting the sample?

Yes!! In fact I just finished extracting the nav and dialog service from a WPF app I worked on recently. I want to write an article about that but in advance, here is the code:


Keep in mind that there are many ways one could do navigation or dialog in WPF. This is just a proposed implementation.
