Change Notifications

In order for Avalonia to know when a property on a view model has changed, the view model must implement change notifications. The easiest way to do this is to use ReactiveUI and make your view model class inherit from ReactiveObject.

You then add a setter for each property which calls RaiseAndSetIfChanged:

using ReactiveUI;

public class MyViewModel : ReactiveObject
    private string caption;

    public string Caption
        get => caption;
        set => this.RaiseAndSetIfChanged(ref caption, value);

For more information see the ReactiveUI documentation.

If you don't want a dependency on ReactiveUI, you can implement INotifyPropertyChanged manually
