The INotifyPropertyChanged interface is used to notify clients, typically binding clients, that a property value has changed.

For example, consider a Person object with a property called FirstName. To provide generic property-change notification, the Person type implements the INotifyPropertyChanged interface and raises a PropertyChanged event when FirstName is changed.

The following code example demonstrates the how to implement the INotifyPropertyChanged interface.


//Add using statements
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Windows.Data;


...


// Create a class that implements INotifyPropertyChanged
public class Person : INotifyPropertyChanged
{
    private string firstNameValue;
    public string FirstName{
        get { return firstNameValue; }
        set
        {
            firstNameValue=value;
            // Call NotifyPropertyChanged when the property is updated
            NotifyPropertyChanged("FirstName");
        }
    }

    // Declare the PropertyChanged event
    public event PropertyChangedEventHandler PropertyChanged;

    // NotifyPropertyChanged will raise the PropertyChanged event passing the
    // source property that is being updated.
    public void NotifyPropertyChanged(string propertyName)
    {
        if (PropertyChanged != null)
        {
            PropertyChanged(this, new PropertyChangedEventArgs(propertyName));
        }
    }  
}
