Release Notes

This release is an extension of the following:

http://www.codeproject.com/KB/silverlight/slmodal.aspx

Knowm Ercy's article Modal Window in Silverlight provided a nice way to display a Silverlight UserControl in a way that looks and feels modal. Here at ProModel, Inc. we were interested in this functionality (which is not natively available within Silverlight at the moment) and its use in our Silverlight based applications. Using Knowm's article as a starting point we put together an extension that "wraps" the hosted UserControl inside a window frame which provides for resizing, moving, maximizing, and many of the other features enjoyed with traditional modal Windows forms.
This code is presented "as is" and we are aware of a number of improvements that can and should be made. However, given our in-house time contraints and the lack of a similar modal solution out there (a free one anyway), we decided to make this source available for improvement by anyone who's up for the challenge.
