Custom dialog for Windows Store app

    Question

  • Hello!

    What is the suggested way of creating custom dialogs like dialog shown by FileOpenPicker? I see that is does not use normal navigation when returning to calling page because OnNavigatedTo method of that page is not called after dialog closing.

    That dialog is also in fullscreen mode and does not look like popup control.

    MessageDialog functionality is limited.

    Thank you.

  • I have used the Popup class for such cases where I needed to create custom input dialogs.

  • Hi!

    Do you cover the whole screen with the popup?

    No. The reason for using the PopUp class was to allow me highly customize an input interface.
