The WPF data binding model enables you to associate ValidationRules with a Binding or BindingGroup object. The NotifyDataErrorValidationRule class is a built-in rule that checks for exceptions that are thrown during the updates of the binding source property. You can provide custom logic to specify how the binding engine handles these exceptions by using a UpdateSourceExceptionFilterCallback. For more information, see UpdateSourceExceptionFilter.

An alternative syntax to setting the NotifyDataErrorValidationRule explicitly is to set the ValidatesOnExceptions property to true on your Binding, MultiBinding, or BindingGroup object. By default, the value of ValidatesOnExceptions is true, so you do not need to explicitly use a NotifyDataErrorValidationRule.

You can create a custom rule by creating a class that derives from ValidationRule. For more information and a detailed discussion of data validation, see Data Binding Overview.
