Project description A small validation framework that adresses some issues with the default WPF implementation of validation and extends the default validationrules with new validationrules. Introduction WPF offers some rather good stuff when it comes to applying validation to binding expressions.
However it isn’t complete in my opinion and could use some kind of extension to make it even easier and more effective to use in an application.
There are a couple of things I noticed when working with validation in WPF: I created a small framework to resolve these issues, I opted for validating using validation rules instead of the IError Info that others have written about.
