DataBinding Error 4

Nov 3, 2009 at 12:40 AM

When I use the ChartPlotter I get plenty of DataBinding  error in my output windows.

In fact, just running the \Samples\v0.2\Demo sample makes plenty of error in the output window:

(sampling of them below)

why is that? what can be done?

Don't worry, it is OK. MenuItems ave being created and not put into some container immediately after creation. And bindings on this MenuItems (from plotter's context menu) are supposing that they are inside some container, so they are trying to bind to its properties.

Well, I can see the application keeps running OK, but that makes tracking and fixing my own Binding error a bit more demanding... :(

is there a way resolve or at least remove these output errors?

its really making my debugging through output window messy

Hi!

 

There are some methods to get rid of these output binding errors.

The root of the problem is in ChartPlotter's DefaultContextMenu: it firstly populates ObservableCollection of MenuItems and then assigns it to ChartPlotter's ContextMenu.

If you don't need to change the list of plotter's Contextmenu's menuItems, you can change the code of DefaultContextMenu's IPlotterElement.OnPlotterAttached method, adding menu items directly to plotter's ContextMenu.

Then you willn't get those output binding errors.

 

Best regards,

Mikhail.
