Balloons on Dialogs

Sep 23, 2016 at 9:25 PM
I am trying to implement the Help Balloon controls in my project and it works great as long as I am on the main view but if I try to place a Balloon on a child view or dialog view that sits on top of the main view, when the balloon displays, the child view disappears and the balloon displays.

I have tried both methods of enabling the balloon control in the XAML as well as the code behind as you showed in the demo application and I get the same result either way.

Any ideas? This was a behavior I was not expecting and will be unfortunate if I cannot get it working as I had hoped because I really appreciate all of the effort you went into developing this.

Oh please forgive the pointless posting, I figured out that my child views need to be set TopMost=true and I get the behavior that was intended. Sorry you had to waste any time reading my drivel... Color me embarrassed.

No problem at all. I'm glad that you are finding the control useful. Enjoy!!!
