INotifyPropertyChanged.PropertyChanged Event

Occurs when a property value changes.

Namespace: System.ComponentModel
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

Event PropertyChanged As PropertyChangedEventHandler
Dim instance As INotifyPropertyChanged
Dim handler As PropertyChangedEventHandler

AddHandler instance.PropertyChanged, handler

/** @event */
void add_PropertyChanged (PropertyChangedEventHandler value)

/** @event */
void remove_PropertyChanged (PropertyChangedEventHandler value)

In JScript, you can handle the events defined by a class, but you cannot define your own.
Not applicable.

The PropertyChanged event can indicate all properties on the object have changed by using either a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) or String.Empty as the property name in the PropertyChangedEventArgs.

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

' This class implements a simple customer type 
' that implements the IPropertyChange interface.

Public Class DemoCustomer
    Implements INotifyPropertyChanged
    ' These fields hold the values for the public properties.
    Private idValue As Guid = Guid.NewGuid()
    Private customerName As String = String.Empty
    Private companyNameValue As String = String.Empty
    Private phoneNumberValue As String = String.Empty
    Public Event PropertyChanged As PropertyChangedEventHandler _
        Implements INotifyPropertyChanged.PropertyChanged
    Private Sub NotifyPropertyChanged(ByVal info As String) 
        RaiseEvent PropertyChanged(Me, New PropertyChangedEventArgs(info))
    End Sub

    ' The constructor is private to enforce the factory pattern.
    Private Sub New() 
        customerName = "no data"
        companyNameValue = "no data"
        phoneNumberValue = "no data"
    End Sub
    ' This is the public factory method.
    Public Shared Function CreateNewCustomer() As DemoCustomer 
        Return New DemoCustomer()
    End Function
    ' This property represents an ID, suitable
    ' for use as a primary key in a database.
    Public ReadOnly Property ID() As Guid
            Return Me.idValue
        End Get
    End Property
    Public Property CompanyName() As String 
            Return Me.companyNameValue
        End Get
        Set(ByVal value As String)
            If Not (value = companyNameValue) Then
                Me.companyNameValue = value
            End If
        End Set
    End Property
    Public Property PhoneNumber() As String 
            Return Me.phoneNumberValue
        End Get
        Set(ByVal value As String)
            If Not (value = phoneNumberValue) Then
                Me.phoneNumberValue = value
            End If

        End Set
    End Property
End Class
