Hi.. I have  the following XAML

               
/<Control.DataContext>
    <ObjectDataProvider
  MethodName="CreateDummyPDFs"
  ObjectType="{x:Type searchViews:PDFViewModel}" />
/</Control.DataContext>

I need to write code to swithc the datacontext and have the controls on my page refresh.

I need to call another method on my ViewModel and 'rebind' / refresht the data in code ..

any ideas...

I've tried ths but doens't do anything  

   this.odpSearchViewer.MethodName = "CreatePDFs";
                this.DataContext = this.odpSearchViewer;
