I need to bind a TextBlock to a progress bar. I.e., the TextBlock should show the value of the progress bar, which is the progressbar.value property. I tried binding, but I guess I am doing it the wrong way as it does not work. Can anyone help me??

Perhaps if you posted code, we could see how you're doing it. The obvious way is to just handle the event and set the text, but I would agree you should be able to do what you want in WPF.

Actually what u said worked!! I was doing things in a more complicated manner! Sometimes the easiest methods are the most diff to find!! :D cheers

Yeah, that was always going to work, but it's worth learning how to make binding work.

It's fairly easy to bind a ProgressBar's Value property to a TextBox control's Text property.

Example Xaml:

<ProgressBar Value="{Binding X}"
     Height="28" HorizontalAlignment="Left"
     Margin="62,40,0,0" Name="progressBar"
     VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="332" />
<TextBox Text="{Binding ElementName=progressBar, Path=Value}"
     Height="23" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="62,86,0,0"
     Name="textBox" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="120" />

Note: TextBlock would work the same as TextBox (since you asked for TextBlock in your question).
