The binding mode sets in which direction data will flow. Data usually flows from the source to the destination. There are five data binding modes.
Direction of Flow
From destination to source .
From source to destination.
The property is initially set, but updates to the source are not copied to the destination.
Changes to source and destination are copied to each other.
Depends on the UI control.
The default Mode varies between one-way and two-way depending on the dependency property that is being bound. You can always declare the binding mode explicitly to ensure that your binding has the desired behavior. In general, user-editable control properties, such as TextBox.Text and RangeBase.Value, default to two-way bindings, whereas most other properties default to one-way bindings.
The following code explains the concepts in details.
TextBox1 binds TwoWay, so it updates the source whenever the content changes as well as it gets updated when the source is changed (for ex, from TextBox2. It updates the source when the control loses focus.
TextBox2 binds OneWayToSource, so it gets populated once and this textbox never gets updated when the source changes. When the user types in the textbox, it updates the source with the value that it holds.
TextBox3 binds TwoWay, so it updates the source whenever the content changes as well as it gets updated when the source is changed . The difference between TextBox1 & TextBox3 is that, TextBox1 gets updates the source when the control loses focus and TextBox3 updates the source as the user types in because of UpdateSourceTrigger.
TextBox3 binds OneWay so it never updates the source. The data moves from source to target. So when the source is changed in any way, this control gets updated.
The following steps can be followed to instantiate the object as a resource in XAML.
Imagine we have a class Person as mentioned below.
/// Interaction logic for MainWindow.xaml
publicpartialclassMainWindow : Window
fullname = value;
Steps to be followed are:
Include the namespace of the class as shown in line5. Notice that it is assigned to xmlns:kishore. Here we are using name resolution kishore with XML namespace. It can be xmlns:local or xmln:src or any other word followed by xmlns:. We have to use the same identifier(kishore or local or src) when we refer (or when want to use) the namespace.
"If leadership serves only the leader, it will fail. Ego satisfaction, financial gain, and status can all be valuable tools for a leader, but if they become the only motivations, they will eventually destroy a leader. Only when service for a common good is the primary purpose are you truly leading." - Sheila Murray Bethel
