I have done lots of research, and I found out that its impossible to do binding for ConverterParameter.
So I came up with the Solution. I created the Converter but inherited from FrameworkElement

public class ShowDeleteServiceConverter : FrameworkElement, IValueConverter

In the converter class, I created a dependency property

Now, I can do the Binding as usual


It might not be the best solution, but it works for me so far. If you have any idea, feel free to drop me comments.

  1. hey,

    i might be looking exactly for this, but the code is impossible to read in these scaled GIFs 😦

    could you please update them to legible ones, or even better paste it in as text or still better use some code snippet plugin to format?

    thanks a lot!

  2. Hi Brandon,

    Great solution, pretty original :).
    Can you post the code? I can’t see the images so the code would help to see how have you implemented this solution.
