wrote valueconverter.
it works,
but when I update my viewLists, the converter doesn't work.

what is the problem?
And can I solve it?


What I have tried:

I have a listview:

<ListView x:Name="studentWithValueConvector" Margin="5" Background="Beige">
						<MenuItem Header="Delete"  Click="Del"/>
						<MenuItem Header="Update" Click="Update" />				</ContextMenu>
			<GridViewColumn Header="Average"  DisplayMemberBinding="{Binding UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged, Converter={StaticResource gradesRemarkConvertor}}" Width="140"/>

I wrote valueconverter:

public class GradeRemarkConvector : IValueConverter
       public object Convert(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, CultureInfo culture)
           Student stu = value as Student;
           if (stu.GradesAvg < 56)
               return "VERY BAD";
           else if (stu.GradesAvg < 80)
               return "MEDIUM";
           return "VERY GOOD";

       public object ConvertBack(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, CultureInfo culture)
           throw new NotImplementedException();

The get/set of the Student class:
public class Student : INotifyPropertyChanged
    private double gradesAvg; 

    public Student() { }
    public double GradesAvg
        get { return gradesAvg; }
            if (gradesAvg != value)
                gradesAvg = value;


    public event PropertyChangedEventHandler PropertyChanged;
    private void OnPropertyChanged(string propertyName)
        if (PropertyChanged != null)

            PropertyChanged(this, new PropertyChangedEventArgs(propertyName));


The value coverter works, but when I update the viewlist, I dont see the changes.

here is the upadate :

private void btnUpdate_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)

           stu.GradesAvg = int.Parse(txtAvg.Text.ToString());
           btnAddStudent.Visibility = Visibility.Visible;
           btnUpdateNames.Visibility = Visibility.Collapsed;

           txtAvg.Text = string.Empty;

I successed solving it!!!
I needed to refresh the viewlist so after i updated the listview item,I added the next two lines:
studentWithValueConvector.ItemsSource = null;
           studentWithValueConvector.ItemsSource = students;

that made the listview refreshing, and it worked!!
