Hi everyone

I want to access my controls like button or textbox in mainWindow in wpf, but I cant do this.
in windows form application its so easy, you can set modifier of that control to True and you can reach that control from instance of that mainWindow, but in WPF I can't declare a pubic control, How ca I do this?

In WPF actually all controls are public. Are you sure you cant reach controls from codebehind ?

Just declare your control like this to make it public:
<TextBox x:Name="textBox1" x:FieldModifier="public" />
You can then access it from another control.
