    I have a DataBoundListBox:
                ItemsSource="{Binding Data}"
               SelectedItem="{Binding SelectedDataItem}"

    My itemtemplate has some binded properties with converters like:

    <Border Margin="0,0,0,0"  VerticalAlignment="Bottom" BorderThickness="0" Background="{Binding isFavorite, Converter={StaticResource booleanToAccentBrushConverter}, ConverterParameter=DarkGray}" Visibility="{Binding number, Converter={StaticResource booleanToVisibilityConverter}}">

    If in my viewModel I modify the ObservableCollection Data, and set one of the items in Data to Data[0].isFavorite = true, then i call RaisePropertyChange("Data") and  the listbox item isnt refresed reflecting my change. This cahnge only gets refelcted if I scroll down and lose the item from the screen. Next I scroll up and the item reappears modified correctly.
    Is there anyway I can force item repaint? I think the item isnt refreshed because it is already in realized items and the controls does not repaint it.

    Hello Jagoba,

    Thanks for writing and for the code snippets.

    In your scenario, when changing a property on your Business Entity, you need to raise the PropertyChanged event for the name of the property that you've changed, not for the Data property.

    I hope this helps.

    Have a suggestion or face a problem - you can use the Ideas & Feedback portal to submit ideas, feedback and vote for them.

    I'm having this same issue.
    This only happens with bindings that user converters, any ideas?

    Hello Matt,

    Please verify that your business object implement INotifyPropertyChanged and that the converter does not throw exception (as the latter will not stop the execution of the program).

     If this is not the case could you send us more information (code snippets or project) describing the scenario and the issue you are having?
