Xamarin.Forms MessagingCenter to update Pages BindingContext and PopAsync

Hi Guys,

i have the following situation:

      private async void UpdateKundenDatenInOverviewPage(KundenDatenPageModel e)
                            initializerModel.KundenDaten = e;
                            BindingContext = initializerModel;
                            await Navigation.PopAsync();

This Method gets invoked by a Message my Page subscribes from. The initializerModel is a class member and gets initialized once in the constructor of the page with default values. After the message was sent i want to update the KundenDaten Property of the initializerModel in order to bind the new data to the page again. But it wont work.

            private async void UpdateKundenDatenInOverviewPage(KundenDatenPageModel e)
                OverviewPageModel initializerModel = new OverviewPageModel();
                initializerModel .KundenDaten = e;
                initializerModel .FahrzeugZustand = fahrzeugZustand;

                BindingContext = initializerModel;

                await Navigation.PopAsync();

This code works. So if i create a new instance of initializerModel (in this case its a OverviewPageModel) and set it as the pages BindingContext the data will appear after i pop the page the message was sent from from the navigationstack.

Can u guys help me?
Thank you in advance, Gelatto

    What are you binding it to that isn't working?
    Does your ViewModel class implement INotifyPropertyChanged? And is the PropertyChanged event being fired for that property?

    @dkarzon my viewmodel doesnt implement inotifypropertychanged, i'll look it up and implement it. do you know any good sites with explaination? thanks

    @Gelatto I can't post links at the moment but I would recommend having a look at PropertyChanged.Fody it will wire up a lot of the code for you so you can just write regular properties.

    This guide shows the basics of setting up a View Model to implement INotifyPropertyChanged:

    There is one event in the interface:

    public event PropertyChangedEventHandler PropertyChanged;

    See the code samples in the above linked section of the guide on how to implement and use INotifyPropertyChanged
