Hello Guys,

How effectively solve problem with async load records for binding ItemSource?

If I have in view

<ComboBox SelectedValue="{Binding SelectedRecord.EntityB}" ItemsSource="{Binding Records}" />

in ViewModel:

public BindableCollection<EntityA> SelectedRecord { get; set; }

public BindableCollection<Entity> Records{ get; private set; }

public IEnumerable<IResult> InitViewModel() // invoked after load view cal:Message.Attach="[Event Loaded]=[Action InitViewModel]" on UserControl 


//before load i have not null value in SelectedRecord.EntityB but Records are empty

yield return new AsyncResult(() =>


Thread.Sleep(1000)//simulate load


//after load unfortunatelly i have null in SelectedRecord.EntityB and this is error !



I need function of wpf which will wait on load ItemsSource after LoadData and doesn't clear my  SelectedRecord.EntityB


Tank you
