Permanent Window Interaction
Windows can interact with each other. You can set up a permanent interaction between two windows by creating one or two user-defined properties of Window type, and then writing the appropriate method calls.
Assume, one window contains a button that opens another window by performing a Window.Create() call. The window that contains the button is the calling window, and the window that is opened is the created window. After creation, the calling window and the created window can interact in three ways:
Suppose, in the Travel Agency, the Bookings window opens the Days window. After creation:
