equadrat Framework Mvvm

The idea of the equadrat Framework is to provide APIs to build applications with an architecture of highly decoupled components. Every single component, aspect or pattern is represented by interfaces. The framework provides a standard implementation for these but each type can be replaced by a custom implementation.

The framework is not about reimplementing components, but making them available using common interfaces.

Getting started

You can use most of the components by simply instantiating them. This is maybe the easiest way to evaluate the framework.

If you're using an IOC/DI container such as Microsoft Extensions DependencyInjection or if you want to use the built-in IOC framework, you can use the bootstrapper and bootstrapper modules to register the framework to the IOC.


The only requirement for view models is to implement INotifyPropertyChanged.

The equadrat Mvvm framework works fine with other Mvvm frameworks such as CommunityToolkit.Mvvm.

Have a look at the example applications on my website and in the wiki.

Interesting components

This is a list of some (not all) components of the framework which might be interesting for you.

MVVM code generator

  • MvvmGeneratePropertyAttribute
    • Requires partial class
    • Requires MvvmViewModel base class
    • Use PropertyName & PropertyType to generate a property
    • Use DeclarationType to generate all properties of the specified type of interface

MVVM data container & helper

  • IMvvmDataContainerFactory
  • MvvmHelper

MVVM shell & navigation

  • IMvvmShellService
  • IMvvmNavigationService

MVVM views

  • IMvvmView
  • IMvvmViewFactory
  • IMvvmViewRegistry

MVVM view models

  • MvvmViewModel (optional to use)
    • Base implementation for view models
    • Event implementation
    • Creates a data container.

MVVM behaviors

  • MvvmViewModelPresenterBehavior
    • Creates the view for the assigned view model (context) of the current control.
  • MvvmViewModelProviderBehavior
    • Creates a view model and binds it to the control (context).
  • MvvmViewModelVisibilityBehavior
    • Synchronizes the view model "visibility" with the visibility of the current control.


The MVVM implementation itself is platform agnostic, but there are supporting integrations for some major client GUI frameworks.


The plan is to keep the equadrat Framework compatible to these .net versions as long as possible.

.net version min max
Core 3.1 ≥ 8.x
Standard 2.0 ≥ 2.1
Framework 4.6.2 ≥ 4.8.x
