I have been coding since the mid 80's. But my profile says i was born in the year 2000. Go figure. Age is a state of mind.

Even one developer helped is better than none.

comment Advantage to Old Users
@g.pickardou If you are not active now and not perform now as you did earlier the community's trust also should decrease in you. Nope, you are fundamentally wrong there. The votes are a measure of trust in the answer as much as the author. An answer five years later is still as good for the question as it was when first tendered - it shouldn't lose trust because the author is less active. Anyway this is an old discussion which I have no intention of resurrecting and re-litigating all over again.

Good job - I've reversed my downvote :)

comment If clinching is technically illegal, why does it almost always go unpunished?
I guess it also depends on the intent of the clinch - fighters can just get bound up, but some fighters use it cynically to kill a fight. Determining that intent can be tough in some cases and borderline calls can easily lead to spectator dissatisfaction. Also top level boxing is very focused on making money - you'll have a problem attracting certain "stars" for your promotion if you start to penalize them too heavily for cynical clinching.

comment What is in ViewModel in MVVM
As for "value converters galore" - yes you are right, but a proliferation of them is usually an indicator of sloppy coding and lack of WPF experience. For example I've seen many cases where converters were used instead of DataTriggers, template selectors, and so on. Converters are a hammer, and to inexperienced coders everything becomes a nail when they have that particular hammer.

comment What is in ViewModel in MVVM
That thread is about value converters which is something else again, and they definitely belong to and are associated with the view. There are several key points I would disagree with in the marked answer (IMVHO Rachel's is actually the best). A VM should not be WPF specific - you should be able to use the same one across WPF or Silverlight and with some modifications Winforms. You don't have 'Label' properties to hold text in your VM - bind to a string in a resource file instead. Etc.

comment What is in ViewModel in MVVM
@FrerkMorrin It was a bad example and is likely to confuse a new person. The answers spend a lot of time saying not to put visual stuff into the VM, then in this answer he goes and does it.... This sort of approach is both against the principles of MVVM and it invariably leads to masses of smelly code.

A Brush is a visual element. Don't put brushes in your viewmodel. It is the VM's job to present a value, and then the View translates (or renders) according to that value. So for this example you would have a flag IsCityGreaterThanMillion, the view will then render using the brush appropriate for the true/false values from that property.

comment Missing reference on successful NuGet package installation
If you are trying to compile that source yourself then it looks like you have a reference issue based on framework version: Getting “type or namespace name could not be found” but everything seems ok?.

comment Setup ColumnDefinition and RowDefinition programmatically
I'm well versed in MVVM. What exactly are you trying to say? Did you understand my comment? In case I wasn't clear, the ColumnCount and RowCount properties should be in the code bbehind of the view, not in the viewmodel. While you can put view related code in the VM, you shouldn't.

Was that comment a reply to me? I'm confused - what exactly are you trying to say? It sounds like a quote from somewhere?

The properties are view related - don't put them in the VM.
