Tive Value Binding.

I'm implementing a Timer app in .Net 4.0. The user will set a start and a stop time/date in which certain processes will happen.

The app has a Repeat timer every X periode and depending on that I need to change the UI of the timer.

My problem is when iI have Repeat everyday between TimeX and TimeY I don't know how to bind the value chosen moade TwoWay.

Have in mind that the whole ap needs to be pure MVVM and no code behind.

.cs ViewModel code:

 public TimeSpan SelectedTime
                string t = Time.Value.ToString().PadLeft(6, '0');
                string tstr = string.Format("{0}{1}:{2}{3}:{4}{5}", t[0], t[1], t[2], t[3], t[4], t[5]);
                    TimeSpan.TryParseExact(tstr, "g", CultureInfo.InvariantCulture, out _selectedTime);
                catch (Exception)
                    _selectedTime = DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay;
                return _selectedTime;

                string time = value.ToString("hhmmss");
                long timeToLong;
                long.TryParse(time, out timeToLong);
                Time.Value = new PValue(timeToLong, 0);
                RaisePropertyChanged(() => SelectedTime);

 .xaml View code:

                    <editors:DateTimeEditBox Name="TPicker" Grid.Row="3" Width="100" HorizontalAlignment="Left" AllowDrop="False"
                                             Format="{Binding Path=TimeFormat}" Margin="5" ToolTip="{Binding Path=TimeFormat}"
                                             DropDownButtonVisibility="Collapsed" VerticalAlignment="Center" DateValue="{Binding Path=SelectedTime, Mode=TwoWay}"
                                             DropDownButtonInactiveVisibility="Collapsed" SpinnerVisibility="Visible">

The time that I obtain in the SelectedTime property is smth like: "12:34:56" but in the UI nothing is loaded.
Could you please help me with this? BTW I'm new at using Actipro and wpf in general.


Best regards,

PS Sorry for the bad title for the thread. I meant Time not Tive.

Hello, one thing is that you are using our DateTimeEditBox but you are binding to a TimeSpan, which I expect would not work.  You should probably try using TimeSpanEditBox instead.

Thank you very much that helped a lot... I have to change certain things but it looks great so far.

The latest build of this product (v21.1.1) was released 3 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
