If the binding is setup correctly and the view model implements the interface to provide notifications when the data changes, the changes are automatically reflected in the elements in the view that are bound to it.
Correspondingly, an underlying data value in the view model is automatically updated when the user modifies the bound value in the view.
By using this control, it will look up and select data from multiple columns lists seamlessly.
When users need to input free form data, they just need enable the function of the free form data input of the Text Box and the filtering mode will be triggered.
The latter can for example be very useful for bindings in Styles and Control Templates and when you want to bind to some property in a parent element.
The Mode property of the , which is the default for the Text property of the Text Box control, the text you type into the Text Box does not update the source property until the control loses focus which happens when you click away from it. the setter for the bound property of the Data Context to get called, as the user is typing into the Text Box you set the Update Source Trigger property to enumeration.
The Editors Control for Windows Forms application is flexible data entry controls. The Windows Forms Editor component provides highly customizable, intelligent controls for managing data input, such as Text Box, Masked Text Box that supports Standard, Numeric and Date Time masks, Date Time Picker, and a slick Spin Editor.
By adding data input validation and masks, developers can enhance the functionality of their application.
Besides inheriting and setting the Data Context property on an element directly you can also specify a binding source using the Element Name property, used when you want to bind to some other element, or the Relative Source property.
Nor can they guarantee that any data files used by the program will be free of errors and in the correct format.
There are however measures that can be taken to restrict the program's input to valid data.
Provided that the view model has a property called “Name”, you bind it to a Text Box’s Text property in XAML the following way: Besides the path that specifies the name of the property to bind to, the binding must also have a source object.
If you don’t specify a source explicitly by setting the Source property of the binding, it will inherit the Data Context from its parent element to use as its source.
