How to bind WPF control to datetime.now()

Hi,

Just wondering how I would go about binding a WPF control to time.now.seconds (for example) so that it updates when the seconds property changes. I have it binding on initialization, but it does not update the UI as the property changes:


Dim MySourceProperty As New Binding("Second")
        MySourceProperty.Source = DateTime.Now
        MySourceProperty.UpdateSourceTrigger = UpdateSourceTrigger.PropertyChanged
        MySourceProperty.Mode = BindingMode.OneWay
        TextBlock1.SetBinding(TextBlock1.TextProperty, MySourceProperty)

Open in new window

wont work.. if you need you txt block to get updated, u will need a timer and then call the binding refresh every second.. or create  custom property which returns DateTime.Now.Seconds and then call the property change of the property in a timer.

I dont think we can do this without a timer.(Using the story board is an option but that will be an over kill)
