Hi Sara

I've partially updated this to the standard structure I prototyped in How to add marketplace review using the Cimalino Windows Phone Toolkit. Basically the framework is there and new boilerplate, but I haven't actually tidied up the example code to fix comments to be more readable or added highlighting, or improved the description of what is happening. I'd love for you to do that (the words are pretty much boilerplate) if you can find time.

What is missing from this is a screenshot of the example application - see my placeholder text in the introduction.

Lastly, I've described this service as "The Cimbalino Toolkit's Message Box service is used to display message boxes from the model of an MVVM-light app.". Is there anything else special to say about this? Why you need such a service? Is the messagebox standard? ie does it look like the ones you get by default etc. If you can answer that I might extend the introduction a little.

The idea is the same that Pedro say about NavigationService, abstraction and it allow to test the aplication with fake messagebox service.

I will take the screenshot and will add it.

Hamishwillee - Thanks

Screenshot would be great.

If you can also make the "boilerplate" look like I put in the other articles that would be good too (e.g. replace your text with lines like "Register the service in the ViewModelLocator constructor as shown below (ViewModelLocator.cs)." as I did. At the moment all I did was put in headings at the right places.

Screenshots don´t make sense in this sample.

Hamishwillee - I disagree

>Screenshots don´t make sense in this sample.

Even if its just a picture of the messagebox displayed it makes it more obvious what the article ultimately delivers.

Hamishwillee - Thanks for the screenshot

I think this is done. I will delete these comments next time round

Much appreciated!
