Bug binding to Slider.Maximum RRS feed

  • Question

  • If you look at this: http://mister-j.dyndns.org/peterj/pete/SilverlightApplication1TestPage.html

    It binds the values 3 and 5 to the Minimum and Maximum values of the slider. However, the Maximum binding isn't picked up.


    The source is this:


    <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">
          <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto"/>
          <ColumnDefinition Width="*"/>
          <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto"/>
          <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
          <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
        <TextBlock Grid.Column="0" Text="{Binding MinValue}" VerticalAlignment="Center"/>
        <Slider Name="slider" Grid.Column="1" Minimum="{Binding MinValue}" Maximum="{Binding MaxValue}" />
        <TextBlock Grid.Column="2" Text="{Binding MaxValue}" VerticalAlignment="Center"/>
        <TextBlock Grid.Row="1" Grid.ColumnSpan="3" Text="{Binding Info}" />

    and the code is this:

    public partial class MainPage: UserControl
        public double MinValue { get; set; }
        public double MaxValue { get; set; }
        public string Info
            return "Slider Minimum = " + slider.Minimum + ", Maximum = " + slider.Maximum;
        public MainPage()
          MinValue = 3.0;
          MaxValue = 5.0;
          DataContext = this;

  • Hi, this is a known (annoying) problem.

    Read this blog post: http://dotnetbyexample.blogspot.com/2009/08/bind-silverlight-3-slider-value-minimum.html

    Also Silverligth 4 is affected by this problem, while WPF4 isn't.

    In a nutshell, try change

    <Slider Name="slider" Grid.Column="1" Minimum="{Binding MinValue}" Maximum="{Binding MaxValue}" />


    <Slider Name="slider" Grid.Column="1" Maximum="{Binding MaxValue}" Minimum="{Binding MinValue}" />

  • Still applies to Silverlight 5 as well.

    The bug remains unfixed as of May 2013 and impacts Surface Store apps, in addition see this other bug too.

    I'm trying to do pretty basic stuff on a Surface and so far have found two bugs in Slider, this latest one being quite serious with no apparent workaround.
