Well this question and this question are similar but no answers that work. In fact I was hoping WindowStartupLocation=CenterOwner would work…it doesn't. It seems to center the new window in the center of a grid column, not the center of the main window. So I'm assuming it thinks that is the parent. Second when I close the dialog and open it again it is not centered but moved down and right from the previous position. And if I move the main window to a second monitor the popup still opens on the default monitor. Are these properties wrong or am I just thinking it should work in a different way. I suppose I could calculate the Top and Left properties manually. I just want the popup to be centered in the main window no matter where it is.
