After you extract it navigate to e.g.: cinch-55703\cinch\V2 (VS2010 WPF and SL)
Extract the "WPF_Demo.zip" file.
Navigate to : WPF_Demo\CinchV2DemoWPF\Lib . These are your pre built libraries.
Now create a new WPF Project.
Copy and reference all the LIB files in your project.
Add a reference to the MEF data composition library : "System.ComponentModel.Composition.dll"
At the top of your view model add the following using statements :
Decorate your ViewModel with the correct name:
Set the data context to the correct ViewModel instance for your View:
All set. Enjoy!
Means that only a single instance is always used for whenever you import it to a view.
Will create a new instance of the ViewModel for each view instance. This is standard MEF :)
