Conductor and Screens - Best practice to notify when something is updated?

Oct 21, 2010 at 6:13 PM

Hi all 

I have a Conductor that manages a few screens in my Silverlight app. 


  • Screen1
  •  Screen2
  • Screen3

Screen1 contains an Observablecollection that  Screen2 and Screen3 needs to be notified if something is added or removed to that collection.

What's the best practice approach to do this? Can Screen2 and Screen3 be made aware of Screen1? Should they be listening to events on the collection?

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

I would look at using the EventAggregator.

Thanks, Rob -- I looked in the Docs section and it looks like there's some documentation pending on the EventAggregator. Do you have some example code?

Send me an email: robertheisenberg at hotmail dot com and I will send you the sample I am preparing for that article. It should demonstrate basic usage.
