BindingGroup::GetValue Method (Object, String)
Returns the proposed value for the specified property and item.
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
Use this method in the ValidationRule::Validate method to get the value to be committed to the source. The type of the return value depends on the stage at which the ValidationRule occurs. For example, if a TextBox is data bound to a property of type integer and the ValidationRule that calls has its ValidationStep set to RawProposedValue, the method returns a string. If the ValidationRule has its ValidationStep set to ConvertedProposedValue, the method returns whatever type that is returned by the binding's converter. In this example, usually returns an integer.
The following example is part of an application that prompts the user to enter multiple customers and assign a sales representative to each customer. The application checks that the sales representative and the customer belong to the same region. The example shows the Validate method, which uses the method to get values that the customer entered.
