Hi Geert,

i want to use Catel for a Silverlight project with Ria Services.

I'm using Ria Services so i do not have the possibility to inherit my Models from

ModelBase because the Ria generator inherits the models from the Entity class.

My questions are:

The Entity class (RIA) implements INotifyPropertyChanged, IEditable and INotifyDataErrorInfo.

Is this enough for catel as ModelBase replacement?

Which catel features will not work with Entity?

How would one glue ModelBase and Entity together to get both worlds? Proxy classes?

Thanks a lot....

Catel supports all of this out of the box. No need to use the ModelBase. Just use the interfaces :)
