How to make ObservableCollection setter trigger when property value changes?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

My class has a property ObservableCollection<MyType>. When any value of MyType changes, I want the setter for my property to be hit. It seems the setter is only hit when the CollectionChanged event is thrown, but in this case the Collection isn't changing, just a value of one of the properties in my Collection. 


Any pointers?

How Would I Create a Trigger That Changes The Property of Another Control?

I have 4 of the same controls and to make it simple I will act like I am working with the background:  <Style x:Key="backgroundTrigger"> <Style.Triggers> <Trigger Property="GroupBox.Background" Value="Red"> <Setter Property="GroupBox.Background" Value="Blue"></Setter> </Trigger> </Style.Triggers> </Style>   In essence what I am trying to do is when the background of groupBox1 changes I want the trigger to change groupbox2's background to Red without changing GroupBox1 background. I keep running into errors because I am using the same property in the condition and in the setter and also that the the name "GroupBox2" cannot be found. Although what I am actually trying to do isn't related to the background if someone could explain how it could be it would be greatly helpful.

Setting an attached property by a Setter element?

I have the fragment below as contents of a <Grid> element. The idea is that if the checkbox is checked the <TreeView> element should only span one instead of two columns. When I check the checkbox the background of the treeview turns red, but the treeview continues to span 2 instead of 1 column. It's a bit like the attached property Grid.ColumnSpan does not get assigned by the <Setter Property="Grid.ColumnSpan" Value="1"/> at all. What should I do in order to achieve what I want?Best regards,Henrik Dahl   <TreeView    x:Name="Blas"    ItemsSource="{Binding Path=BlasRoot.Children}" d:LayoutOverrides="Width" Margin="0,0,0,8" Grid.Column="0" Grid.ColumnSpan="2">    <TreeView.Style>       <Style>          <Style.Triggers> <DataTrigger Binding="{Binding ElementName=chkPosition, Path=IsChecked}" Value="True">    <Setter Property="Grid.ColumnSpan" Value="1"/>    <Setter Property="TreeView.Background" Value="Red"/> </DataTrigger>          </Style.Triggers>       </Style>    </TreeView.Style> </TreeView> <CheckBox HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="-50,0,0,0" x:Name="chkPosition" VerticalAlignment="Top" Content="

DataTemplate trigger to set templated parent property


Hy everybody,I am struggling with a problem.I basically want to provide a data template for my data model and when a trigger on the view happens,I want to change a property in my data model.I cannot figure out how to tell the Setter that it needs to change a property of the templated parent. Here is how it looks now:

My data model for a "Line" looks like this:


public class LineModel : DependencyObject
    public ushort Value
        return (ushort)base.GetValue(ValueProperty);
        base.SetValue(ValueProperty, value);
    public static DependencyProperty ValueProperty = DependencyProperty.Register("Value", typeof(ushort), typeof(LineModel));


How to Make a custom property or a page persist across postback

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.

CollectionViewSource sort not reflecting automatically after ObservableCollection item property chan


I use a CollectionViewSource to feed the Items of a ListView.  My CollectionViewSource is bound to an ObservableCollection that contains items that implement INotifyPropertyChanged.  Item property changes are being appropriately reflected in the ListView, but I'm surprised to find that the item does not automatically get resorted when its property that the sort is keying off of changes.  It would seem that all the information should be there for the ListView to recognize the need to resort the changed item.  Is there a way to make this happen or another 'lighter' alternative to calling Refresh() on the view?

abstract away the source of the connection string using a class with a static property.

ASP.NET provides a configuration system we can use to keep our applications flexible at runtime. In this article we will examine some tips and best practices for using the configuration system for the best results.

The element of a web.config file is a place to store connection strings, server names, file paths, and other miscellaneous settings needed by an application to perform work. The items inside appSettings are items that need to be configurable depending upon the environment, for instance, any database connection strings will change as you move your application from a testing and staging server into production.
