This Gives me an error..   <Style x:Key="radioButtonSelctionKey" TargetType="{x:Type RadioButton}">       <Style.Triggers>       <DataTrigger Binding="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource Mode=FindAncestor, AncestorType={x:Type UserControl}},Path=ValueText}" Value="{Binding Path=Content}">       <Setter Property="IsChecked" Value="True"></Setter>       </DataTrigger>       </Style.Triggers>       </Style> Is it valid to bind Value Property.

Dynamic Binding of a Public Property in a User Control

Hi, I am not sure how to pass a variable from an .aspx page to an .ascx page.  I have a Control that puts rotating banners on a page.  The control has several public properties.  However, only one of those properties changes on the page level.  All the other properties are the same for every page site-wide.  So, instead of setting all the properties on every page in my sites (many sites), I want to set it up so I only have to setup the sitewide properties once and only the page level properties on each page.   I want to create a control with a property of AdKeyword="somename" and pass it to another control that will grab that page-level property and add it to all the other site-wide properties.  I guess what I need could be called a Dynamic Control Property.   My .aspx page has:<%@ Register TagPrefix="uc1" TagName="Banner1" Src="banner1.ascx" %> <asp:Content ID="Leaderboard" runat="server" ContentPlaceHolderID="Leaderboard"> <uc1:Banner1 AdKeyword="L2Chamber" runat="server" OverrideHeight="90" /> </asp:Content> My banner1.ascx page has:<%@ Control Language="VB" ClassName="UserControl297" %> <%@ register tagprefix="uc1&

DataTemplate binding based on object property


I have a collection of objects that I'm giving visual representation in my UI through DataTemplates. Each object has a string property "field". 

Is it possible for my UI to exclude specific objects in my collection from being shown based on the "field" property if it contains a string "foo"? 



class contains non-dependency-property data members that are DependencyObject objects, you must also


I was reading the article Freezable Objects Overviewand came acrosee the statement

"If  your class contains non-dependency-property data members that are DependencyObject objects, you must also call the OnFreezablePropertyChanged method each time you change on of their values, even if you're setting the member to null. "

I quite do not understand the part about non-dependency-property data members that are DependencyObject objects. Can some one explain exactly what this means? If a data member is derived from the DependencyObject  class how then can the data member be a non dependency property?

I am also trying to locate some source code / project that overrides the OnFreezablePropertyChanged method, and have yet to find any on the interenet.

Binding a Button's Content property to an XPath query, Accelerator functionality is lost



I'm using WPF 3.5.

I'm binding a button's Content property to an XPath query, and all is well until I try to make use of the Accelerator feature. 

When I hardcode the text, and place an _ (underscore) in the content, it renders as an accelerator key when the Alt key is pressed.  However, when the content is a binding expression that uses an XPath query, the underscore does not render as an accelerator key.  It simply appears as part of the content. 

Here is some simplified XAML code to illustrate:

<UserControl x:Class="Myapp.UI.Screens.PortalScreens.Portal"
	xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006" mc:Ignorable="d"
		<XmlDataProvider x:Key="languageResources" d:IsDataSource="True" Source="Resources\Language\English.xml" />
<Grid x:Name="layoutRoot">
		<Button x:Name="ExitButtonWithHardCodedText" Grid.Row=&quo

Referencing a Dependency Property in XAML of parent UserControl where the property setter acceptable


I hope that title wasn't too confusing. I'm going to try my hardest to explain what I am trying to do.

I have a child UserControl and parent UserControl. The child UserControl has a Dependency Property that I want to set in my parent UserControl. I want to see the set operation change the child UserControl visually while I change the xaml in the parent UserControl. This setter needs to require that it's value is selected from a specific subset of a set of objects.

How do I accomplish this?

The only thing I can think to do is to specify the name of the object being selected and handle the actual selection of that object in the callback of the dependency property setter.


How to binding to a caculated property?


I want to create a binding like this

    SerialPort port;
    CheckBox send;
    TextBox txtSending;

    public bool canManualSend
         return port.IsOpen && send.Checked;

    txtSending.DataBindings.Add(("Enabled", this, "canManualSend") ;<br/>

But it only works one time. After the form is loaded, whatever port.IsOpen or send.Checked is changing, the txt.Sending has no effect.


And how to make it work?

Binding complex property to Gridview columns


We know that using something like Bind("CustomerName") can be used in the Text property of a label control inside a gridview, where CustomerName is a property of the object whose collection is bound to the gridview. If that property is of a complex type (object of another class), how do we use a property of that inline object as a binding for the gridview column?
