Hi Kollen,

Actually this is by design and I don't believe what you were asking for could be done. Let me explain.

If you run Outlook and minimize the Mail pane and pop it up, note that you can click on subheaders to expand/collapse them. The popup won't close. You also can do other mouse activities such as dropping down the combobox at the top and clicking menu items, or resizing the popup. None of those actions close the popup either.

I think the closing must depend on the context of what is in your panes. There may be cases where you have a listbox that when items are clicked should not close the popup. Therefore I would recommend that you attach to the selection changed events on controls that should require close in your application and when that occurs, call NavigationBar.IsPopupOpen = false to ensure it is closed.
