On the button click event

1. An instance of Child window is being created
2. Then ShowDialog() method is being called to open the child window .

MainPage.Xaml.cs



using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Controls;
using System.Windows.Data;
using System.Windows.Documents;
using System.Windows.Input;
using System.Windows.Media;
using System.Windows.Media.Imaging;
using System.Windows.Navigation;
using System.Windows.Shapes;
namespace WpfApplication2
{
    /// <summary>
    /// Interaction logic for MainWindow.xaml
    /// </summary>
    public partial class MainWindow : Window
    {
        public MainWindow()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            BtnNewWindow.Click += new RoutedEventHandler(delegate(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
                                                          {
                                                              ChildWindow chldWindow = new ChildWindow();
                                                              MessageBox.Show(chldWindow.Getmessage());
                                                              chldWindow.ShowDialog();
                                                          });
