I am working in one of the SlDemos that came with the MvvM viedos. In an effort to try and understand how everything works, I tried setting breakpoints, but the execution never breaks even after specifically referencing the dll from the debug folder.
In my project I have been using SL Navigation to navigate through more than two dozen pages in one region of a larger overall SL page. The navigation is triggered through button clicks outside the navigation Frame. Everything has been working like a charm.
SlDemo appears to be demonstrating the same exact process using a different technique by setting the MainContent of a ContentControl in response to button clicks outside the mainContent area. Seeing that I have come quite far with the SL navigation, I would probaby not want to backtrack on this issue.
One thing that I would love to implement and which SlDemo has, is showing the IsBusy control and the StatusText - and I would like to show it outside the "MainContent" area, in my case outsite the Frame area and in a single set of controls for the entire app, just like SlDemo. I haven't yet figured out how to do that and would appreciate a hint or two.
The secong thing I would love to do: All of my View - Model communication is through a number of ViewModels, but only a single ViewModel is handling the entire ObjectGraph. I did learn in the video and saw in SlDemo the Overload of a ViewModel constructor where the Model object is being sent as a parameter (hint, hint) - interesting. I am waiting for the last video before embarking on that just so I don't barge into something undesireable.
