We prepared a project for you demonstrating how to use the UiElement.ChildrenOfType<>
method which allows you to find elements defined in your datatemplate. On the other hand, in order to view the changes in your ViewModel
immediately, your bound fields must use the NotifyPropertyChnaged
method of the INotifyPropertyChanged
interface properly. You can inspect how it is achieved in the attached solution and let me know if it fully satisfies you or not.
