UserControl close with Prism

I'm using catel with prism. I'm loading different modules at runtim, each has its own view and viewmodel. I have a problem especially when closing the program. Here the OnClosing event in the ViewModel is not fired. I have also tried this in the catel examples, same behaviour too. My View is a catel:UserControl and the ViewModel derives from the ViewModelBase. Is there a way to fire on each UserControl the OnClosing event when the program is closing?

The ViewModel.OnClosing event fires when the view is being unloaded. Apparently the view does not invoke the Loaded event when closing the application.

What I recommend is to use the NavigationService instead and subscribe to one of the following events:
  • public event EventHandler<ApplicationClosingEventArgs> ApplicationClosing;
  • public event EventHandler<EventArgs> ApplicationClosed;
