Hi

I am trying to implement the code(please check the code section).  I am getting the compile time error

1. INotifyPropertyChanged is not defined.
2. Application is not declared
3. Type PropertyChangedEventHandler is not defined.

Is there any namespace that I am missing,

Regards
Karan Gupta
Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic

Public Class ViewModelBase
    Inherits INotifyPropertyChanged

    Protected Sub OnNotifyPropertyChanged(ByVal p As String)
        RaiseEvent PropertyChanged(Me, New PropertyChangedEventArgs(p))
    End Sub

    Public ReadOnly Property IsDesignTime() As Boolean
        Get
            Return (Application.Current Is Nothing) OrElse (Application.Current.[GetType]() = GetType(Application))
        End Get
    End Property

#Region "INotifyPropertyChanged Members"
    Public Event PropertyChanged As PropertyChangedEventHandler
#End Region


End Class

Hi

As the tutorial given in

http://weblogs.asp.net/dwahlin/archive/2009/12/08/getting-started-with-the-mvvm-pattern-in-silverlight-applications.aspx

there has to be View, Model and View Model that is what MVVM pattern is all about. If I am making a contact us page then I have a textbox. In the view i.e. .aspx page I will put all the UI part. In the view model it should be properties . When it comes to Business logic out all the logic in the Model.

I have some queries

1. Is what I have written is correct?
2. View model should be inherited from ViewModelBase class. Am I right(Please check code section)?
3. Is the model class should be inherited from some class?

Kindly advice

Regards
Karan Gupta
Imports System.ComponentModel

Public Class ViewModelBase
    Implements INotifyPropertyChanged

    Public Event PropertyChanged As PropertyChangedEventHandler _
        Implements INotifyPropertyChanged.PropertyChanged

    Private Sub NotifyPropertyChanged(ByVal info As String)
        RaiseEvent PropertyChanged(Me, New PropertyChangedEventArgs(info))
    End Sub
End Class

MVVM was designed keeping Silver light /  WPF in mind so i don't think you will be able to utilize it in Asp.net. You may either look into MVP as Dhaest suggested  or better go for MVC
