Examples

The following code-behind page for the XAML file creates a DataServiceCollection<T> with custom methods that are called when changes occur to data that is bound to the binding collection. When the CollectionChanged event occurs, the supplied method prevents an item that has been removed from the binding collection from being deleted from the data service. When the PropertyChanged event occurs, the ShipDate value is validated to ensure that changes are not made to orders that have already shipped.
