Documentation mistake?

Feb 28, 2008 at 7:29 PM
From the first line of documentation on the DataErrorInfoValidatableBase class:

Provides base class that developer can inherit from to provide INotifyPropertyChanged and IDataErrorInfo functionality for all sub-classes.

It is my understand that NotifyValidatableBase is what implements both those interfaces, not DataErrorInfoValidatable. Is the documentation incorrect?

Very good catch.
That line should read
"Provides base class that developer can inherit from to provide <see cref="IDataErrorInfo"/> functionality for all sub-classes."
I have fixed the doco and will check this in some time tonight.

The hierarchy is as follow
-ValidatableBase implements IValidatable (a custom interface in the validation framework)
-DataErrorInfoValidatableBase inherits from ValidatableBase and implements IDataErrorInfo
-NotifyValidatableBase inherits DataErrorInfoValidatableBase and implements INotifyPropertyChanged

It should also be noted that this is an arbitrary hierarchy I set-up. You can inherit from any of these classes to create your own base classes or, alternatively, you can create your own hierarchy from scratch.
