The following code complies and runs but the byte array (p_photo) is never shown either on the datagrid or the details template. When I put it into debug the breakpoint in the converter is not hit so I suspect the problem is around that. I cannot spot it so any assistance would be appreciated.

What I have tried:

This is my XAML:

How about some clues as to where the issue is.
Ger Hayden 17-Apr-20 6:22am
   
Apart from what I have in the opening line, when I put it into debug the breakpoint in the converter (class ByteArrayToImageSourceConverter) is not hit so I suspect the problem is around that - I am not able to get any closer to where the problem might lie. The code runs cleanly and just ignores the conversion call.

I have just discovered a binding error: System.Windows.Data Error: 40 : BindingExpression path error: 'p_photo' property not found on 'object' ''CPersonMasterBase' (HashCode=65257631)'. BindingExpression:Path=p_photo; DataItem='CPersonMasterBase' (HashCode=65257631); target element is 'Image' (Name='PersonImage'); target property is 'Source' (type 'ImageSource')

And it turned out to be a case of PICNIC (Problem In Chair Not In Computer) - the correct property name is p_Photo, not p_photo.
