Passing multiple values using a Pagefunction

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know how to pass MULTIPLE values using a Pagefunction? There are lots of examples for returning a single value, but I need to return multiple values.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Stephane Touya

You can use a collection. Here I have used a collection of string, but of course it can be whatever you want.
void doneButton_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    // Complete the page function and return data of type List<>
List<string> list = new List<string>()
{
"first",
"second",
"third"
};
    OnReturn(new ReturnEventArgs<List<string>>(list);
}
 
//and in the calling page you handle the return event
List<string> = e.Result

HI ororiole,

So Close. I realized that the values I am returning are of two different types. One is an interface type to a third party Engine and the other is enum to the engine type.  I am still stuck.

Then lets use a non generic collection that contains objects. You will need to test for the type when you remove the object. I didnt compile this, but you get the idea.

void doneButton_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
   // Complete the page function and return data of type ArrayList
   MyClass myClass = new MyClass();
   MyEnum myEnum = MyEnum.one;

  ArrayList al = new ArrayList();
  al.Add(myClass);
  al.Add(myEnum);

  OnReturn(new ReturnEventArgs<ArrayList>(al);
}

//now in the calling page it looks something like this

ArrayList myList = e.Result;
object o = myList.Remove();
if ( o is MyClass )
{
  MyClass thisclass = (MyClass) o;
  //do something here
}
else
if ( o is MyEnum)
{
  MyEnum thisEnum = (MyEnum) o;
  //something else
}
else
{
  //what is this? :)
}

Oops. one more questions. What namespace should I be using?

clr-namespace:System.Collections;assembly=mscorlib?

Hi ororile,
 I am close. Now I am getting this error right after the OnReturn event:
 Exception of type 'System.ExecutionEngineException' was thrown.
This is my code
ArrayList EngineValuesList = new ArrayList();
EngineValuesList.Add(_MyEngine);
EngineValuesList.Add(_selectedEngineType);
EngineValuesList.TrimToSize();
OnReturn(new ReturnEventArgs<ArrayList>(EngineValuesList));  
 
I am going to open up another question so you can get the credit.

You found System.Collections I presume? sorry, I had a lot of weekend things to get done. :)
ExecutionEngineException? Hmm, have to think about that one a bit.
