MvvmCross WPF Tabs Presenter

Sample MvvmCross WPF application with a tabs presenter. A tab bar is defined in the HomeView allowing one to switch between all three tabs. TabOne has a button to show a full screen view, replacing the tab view with a full screen view.


Application is made up of four Views:


TabPresenter.cs in V.Tabs.Wpf\Utilitiles manages swapping and replacing Views based on user input. By decorating a View’s xaml.cs class definition with a Region attribute will define where that View is shown.

i.e. From TabOneView.xaml.cs

public partial class TabOneView

Tells the TabPresenter this region is a tab and to replace the currently shown tab in the HomeView.

For a full screen View DetailFullScreenView.xaml.cs is decorated with

public partial class DetailFullScreenView

Telling the TabPresenter to replace the entire HomeView with the contents of DetailFullScreenView. Once the user closes DetailFullScreenView the HomeView with the tabs will again be shown the user. DetailFullScreenView is stacked on top of HomeView to take over the whole screen.
