Wpf – binding radiobuttons group to a property in WPF

bindingradio-buttonradio-groupwpf

Let's imagine that I have:

<RadioButton GroupName="Group1" IsChecked="{Binding Path=RadioButton1IsChecked}" />
<RadioButton GroupName="Group1" IsChecked="{Binding Path=RadioButton2IsChecked}" />

And then in my data source class I have:

public bool RadioButton1IsChecked { get; set; }
public bool RadioButton2IsChecked { get; set; }
public enum RadioButtons { RadioButton1, RadioButton2, None }
public RadioButtons SelectedRadioButton
{
    get
    {
        if (this.RadioButtonIsChecked) 
            return RadioButtons.RadioButton1;
        else if (this.RadioButtonIsChecked) 
            return RadioButtons.RadioButton2;
        else 
            return RadioButtons.None;
     }
}

Can I somehow bind my radio buttons directly to SelectedRadioButton property? I really need RadioButton1IsChecked and RadioButton2IsChecked properties only to calculate the selected radiobutton.

Best Solution

Declare an enumeration similar to:

enum RadioOptions {Option1, Option2}

XAML:

<RadioButton IsChecked="{Binding SelectedOption, Converter={StaticResource EnumBooleanConverter}, ConverterParameter={x:Static local:RadioOptions.Option1}}"/>
<RadioButton IsChecked="{Binding SelectedOption, Converter={StaticResource EnumBooleanConverter}, ConverterParameter={x:Static local:RadioOptions.Option2}}"/>

Converter class:

public class EnumBooleanConverter : IValueConverter
{
    public object Convert(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, CultureInfo culture)
    {
        return value.Equals(parameter);
    }

    public object ConvertBack(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, CultureInfo culture)
    {
        return ((bool)value) ? parameter : Binding.DoNothing;
    }
}
