Public Event Tick As EventHandler

The following example creates a Tick event handler. The event handler updates a Label that displays the current second, and it calls InvalidateRequerySuggested on the CommandManager.

'  System.Windows.Threading.DispatcherTimer.Tick handler
'  Updates the current seconds display and calls
'  InvalidateRequerySuggested on the CommandManager to force 
'  the Command to raise the CanExecuteChanged event.
Private Sub dispatcherTimer_Tick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
	' Updating the Label which displays the current second
	lblSeconds.Content = Date.Now.Second

	' Forcing the CommandManager to raise the RequerySuggested event
End Sub
