The silverlight forums have this exact same question and a great solution for it: http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/silverlight/window/handle-click-outside-window-in-showdialog.aspx#0
However, the solution doesn't work in WPF.

Basically I need to be able to close the RadWindow if the user clicks outside of it. For the silverlight version, the canvas that covers the application is exposed and I can attach a MouseLeftButtonDown event handler to it. I haven't been able to do this for the WPF version because none of the accessible parents are the background where a user would click. The parents of the RadWindow are ContentPresenter, AdornerPresenter, Border, and then InternalWindow (I can't access InternalWindow).

Thanks in advance!

Hi Jared,

I don't think that this can be achieved in a similar way into WPF. The best I can think of is to handle your MainWindow's Activated event and close the opened dialogs there. Into this case you will have to use Show instead of ShowDialog.

All the best,
