So I've a WPF project which is an IDE with one "label"* per document, I parse the code (input) written on each "label" to detect vars, arrays, functions, etc. and this is done by the View.

Now here's my problem, I got a collection (Of ViewModel) that store every single label and it's data (to be accessed or modify other views of the app), should I bind the View's DataContext (that parse the code) to the correct Item in the Collection, or should I set it's DataContext to a new ViewModel?

*The label is actually a custom view model placed in an AvalonDock control:
        <D:DockingManager x:Name="DockManager" Grid.Row="2">
            <D:DockingManager.LayoutItemContainerStyle>
                <Style TargetType="{x:Type D:LayoutItem}">
                    <Setter Property="Title" Value="{Binding Model.Name}"/>
                </Style>
            </D:DockingManager.LayoutItemContainerStyle>
            
            <D:DockingManager.LayoutItemTemplateSelector>
                <SM:PaneTemplateSelector>
                    <SM:PaneTemplateSelector.DocumentTemplate>
                        <DataTemplate>
                            <ContentControl>
                                <SM:DocumentView/>
                            </ContentControl>
                        </DataTemplate>
                    </SM:PaneTemplateSelector.DocumentTemplate>
                </SM:PaneTemplateSelector>
            </D:DockingManager.LayoutItemTemplateSelector>
        </D:DockingManager>

Search for WPF and MVVM instead of VMMV.
