WPF - External data binding to controls inside a UserControl

In my project I am developing a UserControl that has a slider and some other controls inside it. I need to data bind to some of these controls, for example the Minimum, Maximum, and Value of the slider control. As an initial step I have created a Dependency Property on the UserControl for the "Value" property of the slider, it is called "Volume."

	Public Shared ReadOnly volumeProperty As DependencyProperty = DependencyProperty.Register("volume", GetType(Double), GetType(CA_Fader))

	Public Property volume As Double
		Get
			Return CDbl(GetValue(volumeProperty))
		End Get
		Set(value As Double)
			SetValue(volumeProperty, value)
		End Set
	End Property

Open in new window


The UserControl has this binding for the slider value property:

            <Slider x:Name="slider" Value="{Binding volume, Mode=TwoWay, RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType={x:Type UserControl}}}" Orientation="Vertical" Maximum="1" LargeChange="0.1" SmallChange="0.01" Width="30" Margin="11,4,0,3"/>

Open in new window


The user control is used on the main form of the application and I attempted to data bind the volume property like this:

                <local:CA_Fader x:Name="slider2" volume="{Binding CuePlayManager.TheMixer.MasterVolume}" Height="140" Width="74" Margin="0,2"/>

Open in new window


However, when I use the slider the "MasterVolume" property is not being updated.

Any input would be greatly appreciated,
Sid

I have resolved this issue myself, it appears the default binding on my UserControl "volume" property was one-way. I changed the binding as shown below and it now works:

                <local:CA_Fader x:Name="slider2" volume="{Binding CuePlayManager.TheMixer.MasterVolume, Mode-TwoWay}" Height="140" Width="74" Margin="0,2"/>
