Sharing DataContext Between Document Windows Problem

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

I'm attempting to share the datacontext between two views which are document windows in a tabbedMDI.  One is docked and displays a list of items, among other things, and the other (new document window) is displayed when an item in the list is double clicked.  If I try opening this new document window as floating and call activate it does not display ... if I do not set it as floating it is docked as expected and visible.

If I supply a completely different datacontext for the new document window and open it as floating it works as expected.

I tried adding a reference to the first datacontext to the context of the new document window but once again the I tried opening the window as floating it does not display.

Am I missing something?

Found the problem ... the underlying viewmodel was throwing an exception that was unhandled.  You can delete this thread.


The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
