I have a TextAnnotation which is set up to edit, I use KeyUp event handler to inspect the Text property but this property does not get updated. If I set the Text value in code I can read it back with the value set in code no problem.

The KeyEventArgs parameter has the character typed but thinking I shouldn’t need to build up a string of entered text?

Looked through documentation and Q&A but nothing relevant.

Hi Miles

If you bind your TextAnnotation.Text to a property in a ViewModel, you will be notified when the text changes in the Viewmodel setter.

Best regards,

    Hi AndrewThanks for the reply.On closer inspection it does update the Text property but only when it loses focus. A regular Textbox does the same but the text property can be forced to update on a property change without losing focus by usingText=”{Binding MyBillboardText, Mode=TwoWay, UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged}”This approach doesn’t work for the TextAnnotation so I will use the lose focus approach.Thanks Miles
