Wpf textblock text binding not updating
One of the cool things the P&P team did was create a separate set of assemblies for everything MVVM for Prism.This means that there is a new component of Prism, that exists completely separate of Prism. basically, you can use all the MVVM goodies, such as Bindable Base, Delegate Command, Composite Command, and View Model Locator with absolutely zero dependencies on anything else related to Prism.IMPORTANT: Prism’s View Model Locator is convention based and requires that your Views, and View Models, be located in their respective Views and View Models folders.Technically this is because when you create classes in these folders the namespace match the folder structure. The View Model Locator magically created an instance of our View Model, and set it as the Data Context for our View. If you are anything like me, I really hate putting my View Models in a folder called View Models!One of these brand new functional additions is a View Model Locator.Now, I personally have never been a fan of View Model Locator for a number of reasons, but I must say, after playing around with it and having many conversations with my friend Brian Noyes, that I am really starting to like Prism’s version of View Model Locator.
Then, the View Model Locator takes the Type that is returned form this method, and uses it to instantiate an instance of that type, and then uses it as the Data Context of the View using the IView interface.You may, or may not, have heard that the Microsoft Patterns and Practices team recently shipped the newest version of Prism.With the latest 5.0 version of Prism comes A LOT of breaking changes, bug fixes, new features, and brand new functionality.So this requirement really exists on the namespaces, meaning as long as your namespaces meet the convention, the actual folder structure can be anything you want. Auto Wire View Model attached property on our View and set the value to true. This is actually one of my biggest no-no’s that I tell people not to do when creating large production applications using MVVM. Because you are taking the class that contains all the state and business logic for a View and putting it somewhere in your app that is nowhere close to the actual View. It’s hard enough to find anything in the Visual Studio Solution Explorer as it is.Not only that, the View Model name must be prefixed with the corresponding Views name, plus “View Model”. I personally hate this convention, and I’ll show you how to change it later. If you try to run the application as is, it’s not going to work. Well, because we need ot make a small change to our View’s code-behind. IView simply contains a property called Data Context which is of type Object. Now you want to place distance between files that are directly related to each other?
