SketchFlow: Open a new Window (WPF) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm building a Prototype in SketchFlow, but I can't seem to find a way to have a new window in SketchFlow.

    I can open a new window from code, but it is outside the SketchFlow framework.

    I've put a message box to tell the user this would be a new window, but...

  • Hi,
    Sorry, we do not support WPF windows in SketchFlow. We suggest you mock up a window as a UserControl and use that in your SketchFlow screens.

  • Thanks for the Quick response.

    Is there a way to make multiple user controls visible at the same time, as if in a real WPF application?

    In my case, the "Home" screen would open a new "Window" for a new case, leaving the "Home" window open.

  • You could use States for making controls appear or disappear dynamically within a single SketchFlow screen.

    To simulate a new Window popping up, this Window could be a Component Screen and it's visibility is controlled by a State. With the Visual State Manager you can also animate properties like Opacity to have it fade in and out.

  • Has a better solution (i.e. wpf window) been added in Blend 4?
