Remarks

Depending on the desiredFloatingMode parameter, the WinUIMessageBox can float in 3 ways:

  • FloatingMode.Adorner - the message box is initially centered against the application window and stuck to it. The message box is displayed above the application window only and is always focused. Moving the application window moves the message box respectively.
  • FloatingMode.Popup - the message box is initially centered against the application window and displayed above all windows.
  • FloatingMode.Window - the message box is initially centered against a screen and behaves similar to modal windows - it can lose focus and is displayed above the application window only.
