Configure different styles for MessageBox programmatically

Aug 5, 2011 at 4:48 PM

How might a create different styles of messagebox within the same app? It doesn't seem like I can derive an instance, configure it, then call Show(). Show only wants to be called statically.

Can I have named styles in my app.xaml and somehow associate it?

Basically, I would like different color backgrounds for different uses of the messagebox within my app.

Thanks for any ideas.

Unfortunately this is not currently possible, but it would be relatively easy to implement.  You could grab the source code and provide an overloaded Show method that accepts a style and set it accordningly.  Or put in a feature request and I will try to get to it when ever I can.
