Binding ListView Control Using MVVM

Posted By: Asim Sajjad     Posted Date: September 14, 2010    Points: 2   Category :WPF
In this short post I will show you how you can bind the list view control and get the selected value of the list view control using MVVM pattern. For this post I have added one list view control which hold the grid view control in it view and when item is selected in the grid view the selected item is shown at the end of the screen. In the Image 1the selected items are not shown ( only the label fields are shown) but in the Image 2 when user click on any of the item the detail is shown.

Binding an event method from a control in a seperate window

How would you bind a event method from a control back to a seperate window?  I have a ActiveX control hosted in a WindowsFormsIntegration wrapper.  That is operating in its own window along with all its events.  The properties of the control are handled by a class that defines the dependency objects (thanks Bob) to provide a view model between it and a window with controls for setting/getting those properties.  Since events constrained to Window 2, is it possible to bind the events back to Window 1?

MVVM and Animation Control

I've been struggling with what should be a fairly straightforward issue...hoping someone's got a solution.I'm using MVVM in a scenario where I'm using a MediaElement in a View. The MediaElement has a Storyboard that I customize using DataBinding. The scenario works well when I'm using EventTriggers to control playback, but I have not discovered how to manipulate things using DataTriggers.My Storyboard consists of a ParallelTimeline, which contains the MediaTimeline (with Source, BeginTime and Duration databound to the ViewModel. I've got two buttons that are attached to the Storyboard in EventTriggers calling PauseStoryboard and ResumeStoryboard. This works well, but it's not the best paradigm for me.I am trying to accomplish a design where, if I have two such Views each containing a MediaElement with this type of Storyboard, when one Storyboard reaches its end point, the other View's MediaElement is triggered to play.I have tried to use a DataTrigger design, but I am having problems freezing the Storyboard because I'm using DataBinding to set some of the Storyboard parameters.Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can control a MediaElement via Storyboard/Timeline using DataTrigger instead of EventTrigger? Am I missing something obvious in MVVM?--- Jim ---

Binding byte[] to image control in navigation application leaks

Hi there, I have a (minimal) navigation application with two pages. Page1 contains an image. Switching between pages is done via a buttonhandler in code behind, for instance, (this.NavigationService.Navigate(new Page2())) The image is loaded in code behind via: private void LoadImage() { string fileName = "./images/image.bmp"; if (!new FileInfo(fileName).Exists) throw new Exception("File name doesn't exist"); using (FileStream fs = new FileStream(fileName, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read)) { this.ImageData2 = new byte[fs.Length]; fs.Read(this.ImageData2, 0, System.Convert.ToInt32(fs.Length)); fs.Close(); } } ImageData2 is a byte[] property that sends a propertychange event on changing. ImageData2 is bound to an image in xaml: <Image Grid.Row="1" Source="{Binding Path=ImageData2, Mode=OneTime}"/> When we unload Page1 the following clean up code is executed private void Page_Unloaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) { this.ImageData2 = null; GC.Collect(); GC.WaitForPendingFinalizers(); GC.Collect(); } Now, when I start changing pages, I expect the Page we leave to unload, so the GC removes the byte array. However, it doesn't. Am I missing something? Binding the image to a BitmapImage (ImageData1, as you might have guessed:-) ) doesn't leak.

How to Delete from a SortedList using Listview Control

I'm new to Asp.net, and I looked at an example of using a listbox's selected index to delete from a sortedlist. I'd like to write something that would get the selected index from a different control, like a listview, and then delete from the sortedlist. I've read up on a few examples on how to bind data from a sortedlist to a listview, but I've not seen an example of how to get the index once the data is displayed! Can this be done? Thanks for any response!

Microsoft ListView Control 6.0 cannot correctly display multibyte characters when running on a 64 bi

With all the regional settings set to Russian and the OS being Russion the ListView Control 6.0 does not display the column headers correctly on the Windows Server 2008 64 bit OS. If we switch to using Microsoft ListView Control, version 5 the columns (text strings) are displayed correctly. I am concerned that using an earlier version is going to cause problems. Is there a better solution other than using version 5? Thanks!

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&

Building a user control with MVVM

Hi there, I created a custom user control that retrieve rows from database and will create all the buttons on runtime. My current approach is write all codes in the code behind of user control. And also I add a click event handler to each buttons that created on runtime. When any of the button is clicked, inside the click handler function will raise a RoutedEvent. And at the parent control, I add a handler to the custom user control to handle which button is clicked. The problems is : 1) I don't want to write all codes at the code behind. I tried to create a view model class for the user controls, but I failed to bind the event to view model as I wanted to retrieve the object that call this event. ICommand doesn't provide the information for it. 2) Even if I successful created a view model class, when a click event is triggered, the view model will handle it then it fire another event to user control class then the user control class fire another event to the main parent control. Which I think this is stupid >_< 3) I want to know how to user MVVM in this situation. Thanks & Regards, Rambo Ong
