Hi,

    I am trying to bind dictionary object to ListBoxControl as shown below

         <telerik:RadListBox ItemsSource="{Binding Path=BooksAvailable}" Height="270">
            <telerik:RadListBox.ItemTemplate>
                <DataTemplate>
                <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
                    <CheckBox IsChecked="{Binding Path=Value}"
                       Width="20" />
                    <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=Key}"
                       Width="100" />
                </StackPanel>
                </DataTemplate>
            </telerik:RadListBox.ItemTemplate>
        </telerik:RadListBox>

      I want to do two way binding of the values so that if user unchecked I have to update internal Boolean value property.But it is giving exception two way binding can't be possible with dictionary value.

Please help to resolve this.

 

Regards,

Nagasree.

Hello Nagasree,

The issue is caused by the two-way binding with the read-only property Value - which is not supported:
"System.Windows.Markup.XamlParseException: A TwoWay or OneWayToSource binding cannot work on the read-only property 'Value' of type 'System.Collections.Generic.KeyValuePair`2[System.String,System.Boolean]'":

Because the two-way binding is not supported in the Microsoft's implementation of the KeyValuePair you can either use one-way binding with property Value or use an ObservableCollection<Custom_Class> instead of Dictionary.

I've prepared a sample project demonstrating the second approach. Please find it attached.

Hope this helps.

Polya
