Callisto + Caliburn.Micro + these Dialog Helpers = Happy Windows RT Dev Camper

Mikael Koskinen - Callisto Dialog Helpers for Caliburn.Micro WinRT

Callisto is excellent open source UI Control library for the Windows 8 Store apps. Caliburn.Micro is a powerful framework for building Windows Phone, Silverlight and Windows 8 Store apps. These helpers make it easies to combine Caliburn.Micro with the Callisto's dialogs.


  • Helper for displaying settings dialogs on the Settings charm
  • Helper for displaying normal dialogs all around the screen


The helpers are available as a source code through NuGet:

Install-Package CaliburnMicroWinRTCallistoHelpers

Installing the package will add a Dialogs-folder into your project. This folder contains the source code for the helpers.



This combination looks like a great way to streamline WinRT dev and avoid re-inventing the wheel, letting you focus on what's important, your app...
