Redraw A Window

C#, .Net 4, WPF

I have an application that has 2 windows and an App.XAML file. Window 1 is the main window that shows content from the App.XAML file. Window is a settings window that allows a user to modify settings in the App.XAML file.

When the user hits submit it saves the settings to the file then closes itself (Window 2). I want Window 1 to reload that file and then display it.

How can I do this?

@TheLearnedOne,

Sure thing. I am an old VB6 developer so my execution may not be the best c# in the world.

private void lblAdmin_MouseLeftButtonDown(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)
        {
      var newWindow = new ConfigurationSettings();
      newWindow.Show();
        }

Open in new window

I would suggest that you use ShowDialog, so that you know when the window is closed, and then you can add some code after the ShowDialog call to perform the required step.  ShowDialog creates a modal window, instead of the non-modal window that Show creates.

Thank you for the information. Did some googling on ShowDialog and got to where I needed to be!
