WPF Databinding Issue

81 New Member
Hey All,
I have been able to set up a databinding to a property with the following code:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <TextBox x:Name="txtTextBox" Text="{Binding Path=NameFirst, Mode=TwoWay, UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged}"/>
  2.  
and in the code:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. profile = context.NewProfile();
  2. profile.NameFirst = "My Name";
  3. txtTextBox.DataContext = profile;
Now when I click a button I do the following:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. profile = context.NewProfile();
  2. profile.NameFirst = "Another name";
Edit: More specifically, the textbox does not reflect the changes to the model.

But the binding doesn't update. Is this because the WPF databinding is binding to the actual object? If that's the case, then when I point profile to the new Profile object, the old one is still being held in memory by the databinding?

Is there a way to make this work so that when I move profile, the databinding updates accordingly? I was hoping that it was bound to the variable not necessarily to the data of the variable.

Thanks!

Hi, I'm having issues with DataBinding. I have a Form with two data bound comboboxes on it. When you select something in one combobox I may {or may not} want to change the selected item in the other combobox. For reasons beyond the scope of this post I need to change the second comboboxe's selected index from within a ColumnChanging event handler. So, inside a ColumnChanging event handler I change the value of the column that is bound to...

I'm writing what should be a very simple app against an Oracle database. The app has a number of user controls, any one of which is loaded into a main display page using the loadControl method, depending on which menu item a user selects. Each of these controls follows the same basic pattern: Get a dataset from the database and then display the results using basic databinding. Everything works fine except that I'll occaisionally get an...

Hi, I have a UserControl containing some controls of which one is a ComboBox. All the InternalControls are Private and some are allowed to be accessed through Public Methods. One of the things I would like to do (of course) is set the DataBindings. Something clearly is wrong with the approach I use, because I can't set the Properties in the Designer, the DataSource-Property appears like 'ReadOnly', there is no "dropdown" with the list from...

Hi all, I may be missing something with how databinding works but I have bound a datasource to a control and everything is great, the control updates to reflect the state of my datasource when I update the datasource - awesome, but I have an issue with updating from a different thread. Here is my datasource, a person class that raises the PropertyChanged event: class Person : INotifyPropertyChanged {

Hi I have a very simple configuration of the GridView with paging and sorting. When I do a postback the DataBinding event fires twice - in both the ProcessPostData and PreRender stages of the page life cycle. In this example the event fires twice when a) GridView EnableViewState=False and any image type control in the <columns/> element. When either EnableViewState is set to true or the image button is removed, the event fires once....

I've spent loads of time Googling to try to work this one out and I'm sure it's something obvious. I get an InvalidOperationException reading "Databinding methods such as Eval(), XPath(), and Bind() can only be used in the context of a databound control" when I start my page. Unless I'm missing something obvious, this is *not* the same issue as the "2-way databinding cascading lists" issue in...

Hello to all, I want to know if DataBinding in asp.net 2,0 is better than to fill up the values of the controls of the following form: this.miControlTextBox.Text = valorParaControlTextbox; Performance with databinding is good in asp.net 2.0 ? Would you prefer: databinding or set value to Text property of control ?

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
