A lightweight MVVM implementation targeting .NET Standard 2.0 and .NET 6.0.

It contains base implementations for view models, commands, data transfer object conversion and more.


Take a look at the Quick start in the wiki. Here are some basic examples for using PresentationBase.Core:

ViewModels with bindable properties

public class AwesomeViewModel : ViewModel
    private string _name;
    public string Name
        get => _name;
        set => SetProperty(ref _name, value);

... and with property validation

public class AwesomeViewModel : ViewModel
    private string _name;

    public string Name
        get => _name;
        set => SetProperty(ref _name, value, NameValidation);

    private IEnumerable<string> NameValidation(string value)
        if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(value))
            yield return "Name cannot be null or empty!";
        else if (value == "sungaila")
            yield return "Name cannot be stupid!";

ViewModel collections

public class AwesomeViewModel : ViewModel
    public ObservableViewModelCollection<ChildViewModel> Children { get; }
    public AwesomeViewModel()
        Children = new ObservableViewModelCollection<ChildViewModel>(this);
        Children.Add(new ChildViewModel { Nickname = "Blinky" });
        Children.Add(new ChildViewModel { Nickname = "Pinky" });
        Children.Add(new ChildViewModel { Nickname = "Inky" });
        Children.Add(new ChildViewModel { Nickname = "Clyde" });


Your command can be defined anywhere you want (as long as its assembly is referenced by the application). Please note that a parameterless constructor (or none at all) is needed.

public class AlertCommand : ViewModelCommand<AwesomeViewModel>
    public override void Execute(AwesomeViewModel parameter)
        System.Windows.MessageBox.Show("You just clicked that button.");

    public override bool CanExecute(AwesomeViewModel parameter)
        return parameter.Name != "John Doe";

... and async commands

public class AlertCommandAsync : ViewModelCommandAsync<AwesomeViewModel>
    protected override async Task ExecutionAsync(AwesomeViewModel parameter)
        await Task.Run(() =>
            System.Windows.MessageBox.Show("You clicked that button two seconds ago.");
