The FrameDocumentUIService is an IDocumentManagerService implementation that allows you to show framed documents inside the NavigationFrame control.

Expanded Getting Started with FrameDocumentUIService

Assume that you need to implement a framed document UI. When an end-user double-clicks a grid row, a new document should be created and shown as a NavigationFrame view. This newly created document should display information from the clicked row, , i.e., an end-user can get a document representation of each row.

Suppose that this is the MainView.

To handle and process the TableView.RowDoubleClick event at the ViewModel level, subscribe to this event via the EventToCommand class as shown in the code snippet below.

Use the DocumentManagerServiceExtensions's CreateDocument extension method (available for all IDocumentManagerService implementations) to create a framed document.

To learn how to obtain the service from a View Model, see the following topics: Services in ViewModelBase descendants and Services in POCO objects.

Expanded Customization Options

FrameDocumentUIService provides a set of properties that allow you to customize the document's view.

These properties are used by the view creation mechanism. You can learn more about them in the following topic: View creation mechanisms

The following properties are used to customize the document's container.
