Hi forum,


is there a way to rebind/refresh the binding between view and view model? I want my application to dynamically load view models into the ContentControl. I've get it done and it  works fine. Now i want to restore a view model into the ContentControl if the user quits the current view (view = usercontrol). The restored view/view model is displayed again, but the binding doesn't work anymore. If i click on a button or something else the corresponding command in view model does not execute. How can i refresh the binding? Many thanks in advance.

Check your output window. It normally gives hints what's going wrong. Also, you might want to enable the Catel logger during debugging. In your app startup, use this code:


It is possible to force a binding to update using DependencyObjectExtensions.UpdateAllBindings, but I think this is not the issue here.

If you provide a repro I am willing to take a look at it.
