ViewModelLocator.Register should not require BindableBase

Feb 5, 2013 at 10:43 PM
The ViewModelLocator.Register method currently requires a ViewModel to derive from Kona.Infrastructure.BindableBase. This should be changed to Func<object>. There is a possibility that a ViewModel will not use the BindableBase, but rather a custom implementation or not derive from anything at all. Especially since there is no use of any of the BindableBase methods, so the expectation of a BindableBase is not warranted.

It no longer does as you will see in the next drop. ViewModelLocator can return any ViewModel regardless of base class.

Can you let us know when the next drop will be posted? Even a ballpark ETA would suffice.
Also, can you point to any other updates that we can expect to see in the new drop?

We usually have a drop every 2 weeks or sometimes more frequently. Do you just want the update to BindableBase or are you looking for something else as well?

A new drop was just released. It includes:
  • MvvmAppBase to make it easier to start building an app
  • Search
  • Periodic Notifications for a live tile
  • HelloWorld Quickstart (with and without Unity Container)
  • AWShopper RI now uses Unity Container
