Hello,

I am new to programing for Windows Phones Mango.  I am trying to figure out how to do a view change based on multiple conditions using Binding.  I could do this with the code behind file, but I am trying to learn the correct way to program for Windows Phones.

Basiclly, the idea is I have a group of four red rectangle, and I want it to turn green when multiple conditions have been met (conditions are different for each rectangle).  Once all rectangles are green, I would like a button to become enabled.  

I am not looking for someone to give me the code, just point me in the right direction.  I have done the following google seraches with no sucess.

WP7 Mult Conditional Binding
Windows Phone MultiTriggers
Windows Phone Multi Conditional Triggers
etc....

I just dont know the keywords yet to find what I am looking for.  Thank  you in advanced.

When you bind the property to the object, unfortunately that has to be done in the property and not in the xaml.

So, in my code behind file, lets say the trigger for one rectangle to turn green is two textboxes must contain valid data.  I would put an if statment in the Event Handler for Text Changed event for both textboxes.  Something like this:

if(textbox1.Text.Length >0 && textbox2.Text.Length >0)
   change fill of rectange

Or is there a better way of doing it.  I know there are Converters implementing IValueConverter, but I dont know if that is a possibility.  Thank you.

You can do something like this:

<TextBlock BackColor = {Binding ClassProperty} />


public class Whatever
{
    public string ClassProperty
    {
          if(true)
           {
                  return "Red";
            }
             else
              {
                     return "Blue";
               }
     }
}

Hello,

I tried listed above, but ran into a couple problems.  First off, this looks like a property, so it is expecting a get or set statment.  I tried it in the get statment because that seemed logical, and when I clicked on the check box it did not update.  I placed the code in the code behind file for the page.  What do I need to use to call this property.  Here is my code
        public string RectProperty
        {
            get
            {
                if (checkBox2.IsChecked == true)
                    return "Red";
                else
                    return "Blue";
            }
        }

XAML

           <Rectangle Height="126"
                       Name="rectangle1" 
                       VerticalAlignment="Top" 
                       Width="243"
                       Fill="{Binding RectProperty}">
             
            </Rectangle>

Thank you for your help.

The binding is when you call Set the DataSource of the control. usually when you bind a listview or a control like that.

On a single object you can just call

private void PageLoad() //the event after the page loads
{
      if (true)
                    rectangle1.Fill = "Red";
                else
                    rectangle1.Fill = "Blue";
}
