Validation with V1 datagrid

Oct 30, 2008 at 2:44 PM
Hi

I have some questions on V1
1) It seems that Cell validation using IDataErrorInfo is broken in V1. Is there a patch planed for the near future? Or any workaround?
2) What is your supposed way of doing validation? Is there any example (specific to the datagrid) out there?
3) Is there a documentation for the V1 version (planed?, when available)

Regards

Thanks for the link.

I already found this by myself, but it really does not help me

Can you hint me in some documentation for
- ValidationStep
- RawProposed or ConvertedProposed
I really can not find anything on this !

So is there an alternative? Maybe I can use the IDataErrorInfo that I use in my business objects in any other way?

Best would be an example of how validation should be done in V1 datagrid

Documentation for ValidationStep can be found here, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.controls.validationrule.validationstep.aspx.

Example of validation can be found in the sample of this post, http://blogs.msdn.com/vinsibal/archive/2008/10/22/wpf-datagrid-and-the-wpftoolkit-have-released.aspx.

The bug with IDataErrorInfo will be fixed in the next release for WPF and unfortunately there is no work around.

Thanks for your quick answer

Is there already a planed date for this patch?
Or a rough "not before ..."?
