[UWP]Retrieving selected Items from ListView to ViewModel RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am still working on my Windows 10 UWP App and an run into one Problem after another. Things who worked on Windows 8.1 Universal, doesn't work on Windows 10 the same way.

    In my Windows 8.1 App the retrieval of selected Items works perfectly. In Windows 10 nothing happens but the converter.

    Has anyone successfully managed to get the selectedItems of a ListView to the ViewModel using Template10 ?

    The Converter is always beeing called, but no Command is invoked.

    Even testing without any Parameter whether a selectionchanged Event does fire something - nothing happens.

    <ListView x:Name="defcon5ListView" Grid.Row="2" ItemTemplate="{StaticResource CheckListEntry}" Background="#B2000000" ItemsSource="{Binding Defcon5CheckList, Mode=TwoWay, UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged}" SelectionMode="{Binding DefconListViewSelectionMode}">
                        <Core:EventTriggerBehavior EventName="SelectionChanged">
                            <Core:InvokeCommandAction Command="{Binding SelectionChangedCommand}" InputConverter="{StaticResource SelectedItemsToListConverter}" InputConverterParameter="{Binding ElementName=defcon5ListView}"/>

    public class SelectedItemsToListConverter : IValueConverter
            public object Convert(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, string language)
                return (parameter as ListView).SelectedItems;
            public object ConvertBack(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, string language)
                return (parameter as ListView).SelectedItems;

    private DelegateCommand<IList<object>> _selectionChangedCommand;
            public DelegateCommand<IList<object>> SelectionChangedCommand
                    if (_selectionChangedCommand != null)
                        return _selectionChangedCommand;
                    _selectionChangedCommand = new DelegateCommand<IList<object>>
                            (o) =>
                                foreach (var item in o)
                                    if (!selectedItems.Contains(item as CheckListItem))
                                        selectedItems.Add(item as CheckListItem);
                    return _selectionChangedCommand;

  • Event is beeing raised and command invoked only one time at page / Collection initialization.

    Even a simple test app has the same behavior.

  • After further Investigation, it has something to do whether the command is of type something. This influences whether it will be invoked.

    This means:

    DelegateCommand<IList<object>> SelectionChangedCommand WILL NOT be invoked


    DelegateCommand SelectionChangedCommand WILL be invoked.

    any ideas how to get this work?

    (It is the Template10 command)
