I have a BindingSource (employeeBindingSource) who's DataSource is an object array (Employee[]).

It is bound to a BindingNavigator, a ToolStripComboBox, and several Common Windows Form Controls.

GOAL: Fire only one event when the user changes a bound value. Such as text in a TextBox, state of a CheckBox, value of a DateTimePicker, etc.

PROBLEM: I am handling the CurrentItemChanged event but whenever the user changes a text value, this event gets fired twice on validation. According to MSDN, this is expected since it is fired once for the property change and again for the CurrentChanged.

I tried to handle the ListChanged event and checked the ListChangedType for ItemChanged. I got the same results. The event was fired twice!

QUESTION:
So, which event(s) will allow me to detect changes in a BindingSource's Current properties just once per change?
employeeBindingSource.DataSource = _hrClient.GetEmployees(null, null, true, false);
employeeBindingSource.CurrentItemChanged += employeeBindingSource_CurrentItemChanged;
employeeBindingSource.ListChanged += employeeBindingSource_ListChanged;
bindingNavigator.BindingSource = employeeBindingSource;
 
......
 
// The following methods allowed me to see the events fired multiple times
 
private void employeeBindingSource_CurrentItemChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    string text = lstPastStudiesEmp.Items.Count + " CurrentItemChanged";
    listbox1.Items.Insert(0, text);
}
 
private void employeeBindingSource_ListChanged(object sender, ListChangedEventArgs e)
{
    string text = lstPastStudiesEmp.Items.Count + " " + e.ListChangedType;
    lstPastStudiesEmp.Items.Insert(0, text);
}

Have you tried just using CurrentChanged ?  It should fire anytime the data changes, but not until then.

CurrentChanged will fire everytime the Current changes (the position) rather than its properties.

I have found a workaround, which is to use the PropertyChanged event on my DataSource's objects except this isn't built into the BindingSource itself. Before I assign my dataobjects to the datasource I attach each object's PropertyChanged event to an event handler for further processing whenever a value changes.

I will use this solution for now until I find a better one that works specifically with bindingsources.
