This video series demonstrates how to build Silverlight and WPF applications using the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) design pattern with CSLA 4. It also makes use of the Bxf project from CodePlex as a simple MVVM UI framework. As a bonus, the series also includes a video showing how the concepts can be applied to CSLA .NET 3.8 in Visual Studio 2008.
The videos start with an overview of MVVM and how it relates to CSLA .NET, followed by a walkthrough of the basic MVVM implementation provided by Bxf, including showing views, status and error information, as well as connecting views and viewmodels together for display in a way that is compatible with the “Cider” designer in Visual Studio 2010.
From there, the videos dive into specifics around implementation of CSLA 4 business objects (the model), and using the Csla.Xaml ViewModelBase and ViewModel types to help create powerful viewmodel objects. Topics covered include editing a simple editable root object, editing a BusinessListBase collection in a datagrid and displaying a list of business objects where each object in the list is wrapped in its own viewmodel to enable per-row command processing.
