WPF Form won't refresh

Hello,

I have a sample WPF project which represents an issue that I am having.  

The main WPF window has a textbox that I have bound to a custom DependencyObject's (the TextboxText class inherits from DependencyObject) DependencyProperty named TextIt.  I have a command button that when clicked calls the TextIt's class' PrintIt() Method.  The PrintIt method has a for loop where the TextIt property is being updated and then put to sleep for a few milliseconds.  

My intent is to see the value, that the dependency property is changed to, in the WPF window each time the dependency property is updated from the PrintIt method.  Did I miss something? WpfTest.zip

Try placing the DoEvents() method here:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.threading.dispatcherframe.aspx

...into your loop:

        For i = 0 To 100
            TextIt = "Test" & i.ToString
            System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(500)
            DoEvents()
        Next

I wound up using the code supplied in the link since I wasn't wanting to have to include the VB.Net assembly as a reference.  Ty so much
