Syntax

Remarks

N.B. Why we have this evil global class In a WPF or UWP application, most commands must have the Dispatcher scheduler set, because notifications will end up being run on another thread; this happens most often in a CanExecute observable.Unfortunately, in a Unit Test framework, while the MS Test Unit runner will *set* the Dispatcher (so we can't even use the lack of its presence to determine whether we're in a test runner or not), none of the items queued to it will ever be executed during the unit test. Initially, I tried to plumb the ability to set the scheduler throughout the lasses, but when you start building applications on top of that, having to have *every single * class have a default Scheduler property is really irritating, with either default making life difficult. This class also initializes a whole bunch of other stuff, including the IoC container, logging and error handling.

Name Value Summary
DefaultExceptionHandler IObserver<Exception>
Gets or sets the Observer which signalled whenever an object that has a ThrownExceptions property doesn't Subscribe to that Observable. Use Observer.Create to set up what will happen - the default is to crash the application with an error message.
static
MainThreadScheduler IScheduler
Gets or sets a scheduler used to schedule work items that should be run "on the UI thread". In normal mode, this will be DispatcherScheduler, and in Unit Test mode this will be Immediate, to simplify writing common unit tests.
static
SupportsRangeNotifications bool
Gets or sets a value indicating whether your UI framework is brain-dead or not and will blow up if a INotifyCollectionChanged object returns a ranged Add.
static
SuppressViewCommandBindingMessage bool
Gets or sets a value indicating whether log messages should be suppressed for command bindings in the view.
