binding usercontrol elements properties

Posted By:      Posted Date: November 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

I am desperatly trying to understand bindings in WPF, I would like to understand how I can bind the elements of 2 Usercontrols to each other, so that if I change the value of the slider the circle strokethickness changes and if I change the circle strokethickness the slider changes. I have some code that hopefully explains what I want to understand better. TIA Mike

Windows Workflow : Activity Binding Properties Window Ellipses button not visible for one property

How to set and map a Method in the Service file with endpoint elements and binding elements

Hi all, I have created a service file like OSService.svc in that i have two methods like one is FileUpload and FileDownload for e.g :- [WebInvoke(UriTemplate = "/fileupload/{fileName}" , Method = "POST" )]         [OperationContract]         void FileUpload(string fileName, Stream fileContents); same as Filedownload also. People you may know these methods are inside the interface of service file what you are using i'e i have created a interface as IOSService.cs. So, what i need now is i want to write separate endpoint for FileUpload and Filedownload.Because i want to set separate value for receiveTimeout  and openTimeout for the Fileupload and FileDownload process in binding section in the web.config file itself. The below code was i'm using right now but still i'm not able to the set separate value of endpoint elements in the bindings. EndPoint Section:- <endpoint name = "endPoint1"  address  = "localhost:8000/OSService.svc/" bindingConfiguration = "TransactionalTCP"   binding  = "netTcpBinding"          contract = "IOSService"/> Binding Section:-  <binding name = "TransactionalTCP"  transactionFlow = "true"   /&

Some Useful Properties of Binding Class

When binding the UI control with the data source the Binding class has some useful properties.In this post we will look at them and use them in sample application.

Problem binding business objects to custom user control properties

I have created a user control (supplierPicker) intended to allows a supplier database to be searched and a supplier selected. I want to be able to use this control in a number of other user controls, by binding the suppplierID property of the supplierPicker to a supplierID property in a business object, which is set as the datacontext of the parent user control. When I do this, and there is a supplierID specified in the business ofbject, the binding sets the supplierID in the supplierPicker control and it shows the correct supplier name in the textbox. However when the supplierID DependencyProperty is changed from within the supplierPicker the newly selected supplier name is shown in the TextBox, but the SupplierID does not propogate back to the business object. Other controls on the parent form work fine, so the binding to the business object seems to be ok. Any pointers as to what I'm doing wrong here would be grately appreciated.  This one has been driving me nuts for days! Snipped code for the supplier picker:         public partial class SupplierPicker : UserControl, INotifyPropertyChanged     {         public static DependencyProperty SupplierIDProperty;         public event PropertyChangedEventHandler PropertyChan

Binding UserControl property to Page property

So what I'm trying to accomplish is this <uc3:UserControl ID="UserControl 1" runat="server" ClockNumber='<%=ClockNumber %>' Month='<%#Month %>' Year='<%#Year %>' />The user control has public properties named accordingly and the page has protected properties accordingly which I've verified have the desired values.For some reason the values are always empty strings or 0s in the usercontrol, no matter what the page property is.Thanks for any suggestions

How to expose app.config or binding properties for web service

I have a project that consumes a web service, which is then bundled into a windows service and a deployment project.  Both the project consuming the web service (I'll call that the vendorcontrol) and the service project have app.config files in the project structure, but when I compile and deploy, the settings for the vendorcontrol are not accessible in the resulting project.exe.config file.  How would I make this happen?

binding to properties inside a datatemplate


Hi all


Im creating a user control which will act like a border.  I will be able to specify via properties each side of the borders thickness and color.  I am using a DataTemplate for this because I want to be able to specify where I want the content to go inside the user control.


My problem is I can’t seem to get the properties iv created in code (get;set) to change the thickness or color or the borders iv created in the xaml file.  Iv tried binding to them in the xaml file however they are not getting called.



Serialize a Class's properties as XML Attributes instead if Elements


Say you have a 3rd party provided assembly with a class like so:

User user = new User();

user.UserId = 1;
user.UserName = "johndoe";
user.Password = "password";


When serialized with the XmlSerializer it comes out something like this:


XAML UserControl ItemTemplate Binding does not work

Hi there!

I have defined a UserControl to implement a Checkboxed Combobox following the post of justguy:

UserControl in DataTemplate for a GridViewColumn data binding


Hey guys,

I have a UserControl with a TextBox in it (in my app, it's a little more than a text box - but for reproducing I used the textbox). This UC is put inside a DataTemplate for a GridViewColumn cell template. Below is  the UC.

<UserControl x:Class="XXX.TestUC"
	xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" <span style="font-family:Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif; white-space:normal; color:#8b008b">xmlns:<span style=

I have a WPF application that has a UserControl called 'Address' which sets up a simple form with a grid some labels and some data input controls (TextBoxes..etc.)

I made a little style resource to add a gradient to a grid row background for my headings like this:
        <Style x:Key="GridHeaderFade" TargetType="{x:Type Grid}">
            <Setter Property="Grid.Background">
                    <LinearGradientBrush ColorInterpolationMode="SRgbLinearInterpolation" >
                        <GradientStop Color="#FFFFFFFF" Offset=".3"/>
                        <GradientStop Color="#B0a0a0a0" Offset=".85"/>
                        <GradientStop Color="#FFFFFFFF" Offset=".99"/>
Then in my address control I use:
<Grid Grid.Row="0" Style="{StaticResource GridHeaderFade}" >
            <Label HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="0,-7,0,0"  FontSize="

WCF Tip: Using Properties in Service Contracts

you'll notice all of the Service Contracts are implemented with interfaces containing only methods. For the longest time I thought that's all that was supported, until I thought about it a little more. In C# land, properties are simply wrappers around a get method and set method, so why wouldn't we be able to use properties in a service contract? Well the answer is we can.

Automatic vs Explicit Properties

If the reason that motivated the change from automatically implemented property to explicitly implemented property was to change the semantics of the property then you should evaluate whether the desired semantics when accessing the property from within the class are identical to or different from the desired semantics when accessing the property from outside the class.
