In my window, I'm trying to bind a control to a property in the form. I can't seem to get it to work as intended. In the code-behind I have this defined:
public AViewModel ViewModel { get; set; }

and in the XAML I have this (I skipped the unneccesary xaml tags and such to simplify the question):
TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=ViewModel.SomeProperty}"

but it does display the bound value in the window.

I also tried defining a "local" namespace in the xaml and putting "local:" in front of the binding statement.

What the hell am I doing wrong?

Its not a dependency property? Just a guess

You must set window DataContext with property ViewModel, then it will be working.

public AViewModel ViewModel
 get{ return m_viewModel; }
   m_viewModel = value;
   DataContext = m_viewModel;
