About box

description

Make a menu "Help" and menu item "About". This should bring up a modal dialog box that says "Kane's Model Viewer" and an OK button to close the dialog.

Updated the MainWindow.xaml file to include the new menu header, "Help," and the sub menu item, "About." Then added the "AboutMenuItem_Click" function in the MainWindow.xaml.cs file. For purposes of the about section, it seemed a MessageBox would suffice. Let me know if you would like a more complex modal dialog box.

Yes, do add a more complex box that allows us to use the designer to position labels, images, buttons, etc.

Revised: Used a standard About Box that allows us to use the designer as requested.

One item worth noting: Moving the About window also moves the model behind it. We may want to prevent that from happening...

I think this is implemented as a WinForms about box control. Can you let me know what it'd take to re-implement it as a native WPF window?

I'm on it. Shouldn't take long.

Updated to WPF. It's simple at this phase but still pulls the content using Assembly Attribute Accessors
