MVVM Playing Sounds and Storyboard

May 28, 2010 at 2:09 AM

Ok how does one play sounds and trigger storyboard in a MVVM app.  Here is a simplified example to get the point across

Button Click-->ViewModel-->Checks to see if Button Color is Blue and User has Clicked twice-->If true then I play the Storyboard and the sound. I have looked for examples online but it seems like most just cheat around. I would like one way of doing it. Code would help.

Such functionality can be implemented by passing an ISoundService and IAnimationService to the ViewModel, two interfaces that the MainPage (or the MainWindow in WPF) can implement. This way you keep a neat separation of concerns.

If No one minds, Can i get example in code to see how it would be done. Just a simple example. I am new to MVVM so I don't know how it would fite. If I understand Something like


In the View-->Implement Interface

Pass the Interface to the ViewModel?
