If you ever tried to make custom Silverlight message boxes that look cooler and more presentable than the default message box support that ships with Silverlight, you know what a hassle it is. Below I will give you a tutorial of how to use Simple but Cool Silverlight Message Boxes
to add production quality message boxes to your Silverlight application.
Step-by-Step Instructions: How to Integrate with an Existing Project
Please follow the below steps to correctly utilize the Silverlight Message Boxes in your project:
- Download the .DLL library file from Releases.
- Once saved on a local computer, right click on the .DLL file and select properties. Here click on Unblock option.
- Now at your Silverlight project, right click on references and select Add Reference
- Go to the Browse tab, and locate the downloaded and unblocked .DLL file.
- Once the library file was successfully referenced in the project, put
using SilverlightMessageBoxLibrary; statement on top of each class where the message boxes will be used.
- Follow the code samples at Example Code for further instructions.
Message.InfoMessage("Hello! I am here to help you!");
Message.ErrorMessage("Darn! Something went wrong.");
CustomMessage confirmMessage = new CustomMessage("Do you like me?", CustomMessage.MessageType.Confirm);
confirmMessage.OKButton.Click += (obj, args) =>
Message.InfoMessage("Thanks. You make me blush.");
