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.
