  • Blendable MVVM: WCF and Asynch Data Sources

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Oct 28, 2009 (7 months ago)
    Tags: MVVM , WCF , Data Source

    The next topic that Nigel Sampson discusses in his series called "Blendable MVVM" is about MVVM with WCF and Asynchronous Data Sources.

    In the previous posts we've been retrieving our data from a synchronous data source, for the most part in Silverlight we'll be retrieving data sources from aseparate server, in this case through a WCF Service. Silverlight has a restriction that all network calls must be asynchronous in order to avoid locking up the browser UI (a good thing). It does however make the code a little more complicated.

    Currently there is no way to do that by using binding. Instead, you can make a List<> and add the values from the enumeration in the list. Then you can use this list as data source.


    List<Dock> enumDataSource = new List<Dock>() { Dock.Left, Dock.Top, Dock.Right, Dock.Bottom };
    this.lbDock.ItemsSource = enumDataSource;

    where lbDock is of type ListBox.

    That's it!
