Hey all I have the following OnStartup for my WPF desktop app that goes to a local directory and gathers all the images within that folder (box1 being the example code below):
Code:
    public partial class App : Application
    {
        protected override void OnStartup(StartupEventArgs e)
        {
            base.OnStartup(e);

            // set the update interval
            var imageSource = new ImageSource(Path.Combine(@"C:\photos\boxes", "box1"), TimeSpan.FromHours(1));
            var viewModel = new MainWindowViewModel(imageSource);

            var window = new MainWindow()
            {
                DataContext = viewModel
            };

            window.Closed += (s, a) => { viewModel.Dispose(); };
            window.Show();
        }
    }
This works just fine for the component I have on the **MainWindow.xaml** that's label **box1** but the other boxes 2-9 do not load their own images from their respective folders - they all show the same images as box1 has.

The **structure of the directory** is this:
C:\
|-photos\
|boxes\
|box1
|box2
|box3
|box4
|box5
|box6
|box7
|box8
|box9
|box10
On the MainWindow I have this code that allows all those photos from each directory into its own element:
Code:
     <Window.Resources>
        <!-- List of supported animations -->
        <FluidKit:SlideTransition x:Key="SlideTransition" x:Shared="False"/>
        <FluidKit:CubeTransition x:Key="CubeTransition" Rotation="BottomToTop" x:Shared="False"/>
        <FluidKit:FlipTransition x:Key="FlipTransition" x:Shared="False"/>
        <local:ImageSourceConverter x:Key="ImageSourceConverter"/>
        <!-- Data template for animations -->
        <DataTemplate x:Key="ItemTemplate" x:Shared="False">
            <Image Source="{Binding Path, Converter={StaticResource ImageSourceConverter}}"
                   Stretch="Fill"/>
        </DataTemplate>
    </Window.Resources>
    <Grid>
        <FluidKit:TransitionPresenter RestDuration="0:0:3" 
                                          IsLooped="True" 
                                        Transition="{StaticResource FlipTransition}" 
                                       ItemsSource="{Binding box1}" 
                                             Width="357" 
                                            Height="272" 
                               HorizontalAlignment="Left" 
                                 VerticalAlignment="Top" 
                                      ItemTemplate="{StaticResource ItemTemplate}" 
                                            x:Name="box1" 
                                            Margin="0,0,0,454"/>
        <FluidKit:TransitionPresenter RestDuration="0:0:3" 
                                          IsLooped="True" 
                                        Transition="{StaticResource FlipTransition}" 
                                       ItemsSource="{Binding box2}" 
                                             Width="357" 
                                            Height="272" 
                               HorizontalAlignment="Left" 
                                 VerticalAlignment="Top" 
                                      ItemTemplate="{StaticResource ItemTemplate}" 
                                            x:Name="box2" 
                                            Margin="357,0,0,0"/>
       ETC.......
Like I said above, this first element ItemsSource="{Binding box1}" loads the images as they should be from the box1 directory just fine but all the other 2-9 after that are loaded the same images as box1.

The mainWindowViewModel code looks like this:
Code:
    public class MainWindowViewModel : IDisposable
    {
        private readonly IDisposable _token1;
        private readonly IDisposable _token2;
        ...ETC

        public MainWindowViewModel(IImageSource imageSource)
        {
            // subscribe to update images at regular intervals
            _token1 = imageSource
                .GetImages().ObserveOn(DispatcherScheduler.Current)
                .Subscribe(i => UpdateImages(i, box1), ex => ShowError(ex));

            _token2 = imageSource
                .GetImages().ObserveOn(DispatcherScheduler.Current)
                .Subscribe(i => UpdateImages(i, box2), ex => ShowError(ex));
            ETC...
        }

        private void ShowError(Exception ex)
        {
            MessageBox.Show(ex.Message, "Photo Gallery", MessageBoxButton.OK, MessageBoxImage.Error);
        }

        /// <summary>
        /// Updates the animation's images.
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="images">The images to update with</param>
        /// <param name="animation">The animation to update</param>
        private void UpdateImages(IEnumerable<string> images, ObservableCollection<ImageViewModel> animation)
        {
            animation.Clear();

            foreach (var i in images)
            {
                animation.Add(new ImageViewModel { Path = i });
            }
        }

        /// <summary>
        /// Gets or sets a collection of images used for the first animation. 
        /// </summary>
        public ObservableCollection<ImageViewModel> box1 { get; set; } =
            new ObservableCollection<ImageViewModel>();

        public ObservableCollection<ImageViewModel> box2 { get; set; } =
            new ObservableCollection<ImageViewModel>();

        ETC...

        public void Dispose()
        {
            _token1.Dispose();
            _token2.Dispose();
            ETC...
        }
    }
The function that loops to get each file image within the directory is this:
Code:
    public class ImageSource : IImageSource
    {
        private readonly string _path;
        private readonly TimeSpan _interval;

        public ImageSource(string path, TimeSpan interval)
        {
            _path = path;
            _interval = interval;
        }

        public IObservable<IEnumerable<string>> GetImages()
        {
            if (!Directory.Exists(_path))
            {
                return Observable.Empty<IEnumerable<string>>();
            }

            return Observable.Create<IEnumerable<string>>(observer =>
            {
                return TaskPoolScheduler.Default.ScheduleAsync(async (ctrl, ct) =>
                {
                    for (;;)
                    {
                        if (ct.IsCancellationRequested)
                        {
                            break;
                        }

                        try
                        {
                            var images = Directory.GetFiles(_path, "*.jpg");

                            // Donít do anything unless there are a minimum of 10 images.
                            if (images.Count() > 9)
                            {
                                observer.OnNext(images.PickRandom());
                            }
                        }
                        catch (Exception ex)
                        {
                            observer.OnError(ex);
                            throw;
                        }

                        await ctrl.Sleep(_interval).ConfigureAwait(false);
                     }
                });
            });
        }
The code currently goes to each of the ObservableCollection<ImageViewModel> box[X] { get; set; } and sets the path to each image within that folder. Box2-10 are the same files as box 1 of course.

How can I modify that onStartup() code to allow for it to consume each box folders' files and place them into the appropriate box # component instead of just using that box1 files?

Thanks!
