The WPF data binding model enables you to associate ValidationRules with a Binding object. If your source object implements the IDataErrorInfo interface, you can use the built-in rule DataErrorValidationRule to check for errors raised by the IDataErrorInfo implementation.

An alternative syntax to setting the DataErrorValidationRule explicitly is to set the ValidatesOnDataErrors property to true on your Binding or MultiBinding object.

You can create a custom rule by creating a class that derives from ValidationRule. For more information and a detailed discussion of data validation, see Data Binding Overview.

DataErrorValidationRule is introduced in the .NET Framework version 3.5. For more information, see .NET Framework Versions and Dependencies.

This example shows how to implement validation logic on a custom object and then bind to it.

You can provide validation logic on the business layer if your source object implements IDataErrorInfo, as in the following example:

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

In the following example, the text property of the text box binds to the Age property of the Person object, which has been made available for binding through a resource declaration that is given the x:Key data. The DataErrorValidationRule checks for the validation errors raised by the IDataErrorInfo implementation.


<TextBox Style="{StaticResource textBoxInError}">
    <TextBox.Text>
        <!--By setting ValidatesOnExceptions to True, it checks for exceptions
        that are thrown during the update of the source property.
        An alternative syntax is to add <ExceptionValidationRule/> within
        the <Binding.ValidationRules> section.-->
        <Binding Path="Age" Source="{StaticResource data}"
                 ValidatesOnExceptions="True"
                 UpdateSourceTrigger="PropertyChanged">
            <Binding.ValidationRules>
                <!--DataErrorValidationRule checks for validation 
                    errors raised by the IDataErrorInfo object.-->
                <!--Alternatively, you can set ValidationOnDataErrors="True" on the Binding.-->
                <DataErrorValidationRule/>
            </Binding.ValidationRules>
        </Binding>
    </TextBox.Text>
</TextBox>


Alternatively, instead of using the DataErrorValidationRule, you can set the ValidatesOnDataErrors property to true.
