For example I wanted to show a childwindow over a datagrid.
I tried using it in an adorner, but when I change tabs and change back the adorner does not work again.
Also before we spoke of using the ChildWindowManager to have the childwindow have an overlay over the full window? It still to this day does not keep me from using the close/min/max buttons, however if the window is defined separately it is fine.

ok
Yeah it's weird to me why it does that.
I prefer the behavior I get when I use separate XAML but I just don't want to have lots of files for something that will go in one place within the application
