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?
