How to prevent closing Workspace

Hi Sacha,

how can I prevent closing a Workspace?

E.g. if the user chooses "Cancel" in the Question "Save Data?" (Yes/No/Cancel)

I think that is done in the WPF demo that comes with Cinch V2, you get that when you download the full source. If its not for Cinch V2 then you have to do it however your code needs it. In cinch v2 there workspacedata class allows for a cancellation, see the cinch v2 WPF demo

Thanks, I found the WorkspaceTabClosing Event :-) (I use V2)

Is there a built-in way to query the "CanClose"-state from the ViewModel?

If not, can I use this way: define a public Func<bool> CanCloseCallback; in ViewModelBaseWPFSpecific.cs  ?

Cool, knew it was there somewhere.


As for  query for "CanClose" there is no inbuilt support for that. You can of course add any code you want, to get your job done, that's why the ViewModelBase class is partial.

Thanks, Problem solved. I use "my way".
( I think, for a business app, preveting close Workspace is essential e.g. to support validation-process )

Cinch Rulez!
