BindingGroup.NotifyOnValidationError Property


Gets or sets whether the Validation.Error event occurs when the state of a ValidationRule changes.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Data
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public bool NotifyOnValidationError { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the Validation.Error event occurs when the state of a ValidationRule changes; otherwise, false. The default is false.

The Validation.Error attached event occurs on the element that has the BindingGroup.

The following example creates a BindingGroup and sets NotifyOnValidationError to true so that the application can handle the Validation.Error event when a ValidationRule fails.

  <BindingGroup NotifyOnValidationError="True">
      <src:ValidateDateAndPrice ValidationStep="ConvertedProposedValue" />

The following example handles the Validation.Error event.

// This event occurs when a ValidationRule in the BindingGroup
// or in a Binding fails.
private void ItemError(object sender, ValidationErrorEventArgs e)
    if (e.Action == ValidationErrorEventAction.Added)
