MVVM Bind View Details to Model Via ViewModel when a Button clicked.

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :JQuery

I have model called Car with prperties name,model,type,year.

I have implemeted the Viewmodel with same properties with OnpropertyChangedEvent including model object type Property.

I have a view usercontrol where textboxes for name, model and for year a combobox.

Whenever i fill the view i want to save those details into model via view model

I have written ICommand  Save which calls SaveCarDetails defined in viewmodel,  which is bind to a button in view ,All other texboxes text is bind to the properties of viewmodel properties.

When i put break point at ICommand SaveCommand and SaveCarDetails Function i could see the values filled from view.

But when i bind these details to another user control where listbox is placed and its itemsource property is set to Car property nothing but model object defined in the viewmodel.

I couldn't see the values binding via viewmodel to model.

Where as if i bind to textboxes in the listview i could see the values because i it's a dependency property.

Can any one please tell me what is the wrong i am doing here.

Disable a link button in grid view after it is clicked

I have a grid view with each row as a link button. When I click on the row, some data parsing process takes place (about a 15 sec process). The grid refreshes itself at a regular interval. I want to disable the link when it is clicked once, so that the user gets to know that row has been processed already and does not click it again, until the grid refreshes itself and the row disappears. I am copying my gridview code below. Please give me some idea on how to disable the link button on that row as soon as it is clicked.Thank You. <td rowspan = "4" valign = "top" > <asp:Label ID="gvOrdersQueueLabel" runat="server" ></asp:Label><br /> <asp:UpdatePanel runat="server" ID="updatePane1"> <ContentTemplate> <asp:GridView ID="gvOrdersQueue" runat="server" OnRowCommand = "ParseOrderMessage" EmptyDataText="No Cases Found" BorderStyle = "Double" AlternatingRowStyle-BackColor="Beige" EnableViewState="false" AutoGenerateColumns="False" HeaderStyle-Height = "20" RowStyle-Height = "20" AllowPaging ="true" PageSize = "20" OnPageIndexChanging="gridView_PageIndexC

Fully Embracing the Model-View-ViewModel Pattern in WPF

I'm trying to get my head around the M-V-VM pattern as it is used with WPF. So far I have been successful in implementing this pattern but it's perfect (yet). There are a number of common UI workflows that I can't figure out how to implement in this pattern such as:1. A user clicks a button that should show a modal dialog box. Usually the VM has a command on it that the button is bound to and something executes. However, what needs to execute is a UI behavior (opening the dialog box). The VM should not open the dialog box (that would be wrong because the VM now has to know something about the UI). The Window or UserControl or Page inwhich the command was initiated should open the dialog box.2. A user clicks a button that executes a command on a VM. However, this is a long-running command and I'd like to show the WaitCursor during this operation. This is a UI function, not a VM function. Should the VM fire an event? And if so, how does the Xaml handle it?So, M-V-VM experts out there, what am I missing? Help me to see the light...Dave

(MVVM): Call Method On ViewModel From View

Hey All,   In my View, I would like to call a method on my ViewModel (all from XAML). View: <!--Parameters--> <ListView Grid.Row="2" DataContext="{Binding}" ItemsSource="{Binding}"> <ListView.View> <GridView AllowsColumnReorder="True"> <GridViewColumn Header="Name" DisplayMemberBinding="{Binding Key}"/> <GridViewColumn Header="Value"> <GridViewColumn.CellTemplate> <DataTemplate> <TextBox Text="{Binding Value, Mode=OneWay}" MinWidth="100" /> </DataTemplate> </GridViewColumn.CellTemplate> </GridViewColumn> </GridView> </ListView.View> </ListView> ViewModel (the Method I want to call): public ReadOnlyScriptParameterCollection GetParameters(string scriptFullTypeName) { ReadOnlyScriptParameterCollection sps = null; var scriptHost = ScriptHost.Create<JdsScriptHost>(); scriptHost.LoadFromAssembly(ScriptAssemblyPath, scriptFullTypeName); sps = scriptHost.ScriptParameters; return sps; } Is there

MVVM: How to bind a page in a tab control with a viewmodel?

We practise MVVM pattern.
We have a main window which contains tab controls. Each tabItem contains a page.
Since the main window needs to share some data with one of page, so our MainWindowViewModel creates the instance a RunconditionViewModel.
Then we need to set the instance of RunconditionViewModel to one of page's DataContent (page called ControlPage.xaml).
How do we achieve that? see the code below.

In HDMainWindow.xaml,
<TabControl x:Name="tabControlMain" DockPanel.Dock="Left" MinHeight="200"  SelectedIndex="0" TabStripPlacement="Left" >
<TabItem Header="Run" Name="TabItemControlPage"> <Frame Name="FrameControlPage" Source="Features\Basic Control\ControlPage.xaml"></Frame> <!--<Frame Source="Features\Basic Control\LoginPage.xaml"></Frame>--> </TabItem> in App.xaml.cs,

protected override void OnStartup(StartupEventArgs e) { base.OnStartup(e); InitializeComponent(); HDMainWindow hd = new HDMainWindow(); HDMainWindowViewModel hwd = new HDMainWindowViewModel(); hd.DataContext = hwd; //if (hd.TabItemControlPage != null) // hd.TabItemControlPage.DataContext = hwd.RunConditionsViewModel; if (hd.FrameControl

Get Control screen position from a MVVM View Model (not using CodeBehind in the control)


Hi, I am using a MVVM pattern for a WPF UserControl. I need to be able to position a dialog over the top of the control, so I need the top left screen coords for the control.

IF, I was to use code behind, the following seems to do the job..

 private void UserControl_MouseDoubleClick(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)
   Point controlPos = PointToScreen(new Point(0, 0));

The controlPos above seems to give the correct result. However, is there anyway of doing this without having to use any code behind in the actual control (eg have the code purley perhaps in the View model class, of have something in the Controls XAML?

Thanks in advance for any help



Model View ViewModel question



I´m playing around with XAML and MVVM, and have a question about the wiring between the model and the viewmodel:

If I have a model that updates its data on random times, what wiring is used between the model and the viewmodel to let the viewmodel know that the model has changed?.

Between the view and viewmodel a bindings and NotifyPropertyChanged would take care of this.

Hi Friends,

   I am Ali, My Issue is

1. I have 'Result Management Form', in this form after entering Subject marks(In Grid View), i clicked on Save Button. (Result: When i click on Save Button totlal marks should be visible in Lable)

2. But when  i click on Save Button Subject marks 'Text Fields' are going to empty. and not visibling Total marks in Lable.

Here i am using this code

for (int i = 1; i < st_data.Rows.Count; i++)
int tot = 0;
for (int j = 3; j < st_data.Columns.Count-1; j++)
st[j] = st_data.Rows[i].Cells[j].Text;
tot = tot +int.Parse(st[j]);


Any Ideas

Entity Data Model and database view returning the same columns as there are in a table


When adding a stored procedure into the Entity Data Model I can select whether the procedure returns a scalar, a (new) complex type or one of the entity types I already defined. 

How do I do something similar for a view?

I mean assuming I have a view like this

CREATE VIEW FilteredFoos as SELECT Foo.* FROM Foo join ... WHERE ...

(that is a view that implements some involved filtering, but returns all columns from one table) how do I add it to the project so that I can use the entity set, but get the Foo objects, not some new FilteredFoo objects.

var foos = myDB.FilteredFoos.Include("Bar").ToList();

foreach (Foo foo in foos) { ...

Thanks, Jenda

Infopath 2007 print view in browser enabled form with Print button

Executing Command Logic in a View Model

Through the use of the Windows Presentation Foundation's (WPF) advanced data-binding capabilities, the logical structure of a user interface can relatively easily be disconnected from its presentation. Bindable components can now contain nearly all of an application's user interface logic and in most circumstances, replace the need for controller objects from the classic Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern. So it's no wonder that a new pattern for UI design has appeared
