Verifying if View Exists for specified ViewModel

There might raise situations in your Project where you might be interested to check if the ViewModel specified has a corresponding View defined and gradefully handle the error, than throwing an exception.

Caliburn Micro’s ViewLocator class provides you methods that enables you to do exactly that.

if ((ViewLocator.LocateForModelType(typeof(DummyViewModel), null, null) is TextBlock tb
&& tb.Text.StartsWith("Cannot find", StringComparison.InvariantCultureIgnoreCase)))
{
// View does not exist, Terminate or redirect to another
}
else
{
// View found, redirect to intended one
}
