If the user cancels the form, the changes are discarded. For the entire sample, see Changing a Collection by Using IEditableCollectionView Sample .

IEditableCollectionView editableCollectionView =
            itemsControl.Items as IEditableCollectionView;

// Create a window that prompts the user to edit an item.
ChangeItemWindow win = new ChangeItemWindow();
editableCollectionView.EditItem(itemsControl.SelectedItem);
win.DataContext = itemsControl.SelectedItem;

// If the user submits the new item, commit the changes.
// If the user cancels the edits, discard the changes. 
if ((bool)win.ShowDialog())
{
    editableCollectionView.CommitEdit();
}
else
{
    // If the objects in the collection can discard pending 
    // changes, calling IEditableCollectionView.CancelEdit
    // will revert the changes. Otherwise, you must provide
    // your own logic to revert the changes in the object.
    
    if (!editableCollectionView.CanCancelEdit)
    {
        // Provide logic to revert changes.
    }

    editableCollectionView.CancelEdit();
}
Dim editableCollectionView As IEditableCollectionView = TryCast(itemsControl.Items, IEditableCollectionView)

' Create a window that prompts the user to edit an item.
Dim win As New ChangeItemWindow()
editableCollectionView.EditItem(itemsControl.SelectedItem)
win.DataContext = itemsControl.SelectedItem

' If the user submits the new item, commit the changes.
