ValidationRule.ValidatesOnTargetUpdated Property

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the validation rule runs when the target of the Binding is updated.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation

public bool ValidatesOnTargetUpdated { get; set; }
<object ValidatesOnTargetUpdated="bool" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the validation rule runs when the target of the Binding is updated; otherwise, false.

The following example checks whether the TextBox is empty. The ValidationRule, ValueIsNotNull, has ValidatesOnTargetUpdated set to true, so that when the application starts, the ValidationRule runs and displays a message if the TextBox is empty.

<TextBox Width="150"
         Validation.Error="ItemError">
  <TextBox.Text>
    <Binding Source="{StaticResource myObject}"
             Path="PropertyB"
             UpdateSourceTrigger="PropertyChanged"
             NotifyOnValidationError="True">
      <Binding.ValidationRules>
        <src:ValueIsNotNull ValidatesOnTargetUpdated="True" />
      </Binding.ValidationRules>
    </Binding>
  </TextBox.Text>
</TextBox>

The following example shows the ValidationRule that is used in the previous example and the event handler for the Error event.

public class ValueIsNotNull : ValidationRule
{
    public override ValidationResult Validate(object value, System.Globalization.CultureInfo cultureInfo)
    {
        string str = value as string;

        if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(str))
        {
            return ValidationResult.ValidResult;
        }
        else
        {
            return new ValidationResult(false, "Value must not be null");
        }
    }
}
