DataGrid ItemSource does not show updates to item property changes

I have an sfdatagrid that has it's itemsource set to an observablecollection. All works ok except that I want the grid to reflect programatic changes to the properties of items in the collection. I tried removing and then re-adding the item at the same position but the change was not reflected in the grid. Then I extended the ObservableCollection class with MyObservableCollection<t> where T : INotifyPropertyChanged. When I set this new class as the grids itemsource the app crashes. No debug error in VS, it just shuts down.

How can I get the sfdatagrid to reflect changes to item properties in the ObservableCollection ItemSource?

This does not look like it will solve my problem. I am not editing cells in the UI but I am changing the values of the underlying datamodel. When I do change the value of the datamodel I expect the grid to show that change in the grid but it does not. 

Do you have an example where the datamodel is changed and the grid reflects those changes?

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the update. We were unable to reproduce the reported issue "DataGrid ItemSource does not show updates to item property changes". We have prepared a sample based on your requirements. In the sample choose the 'Update Data' from the picker to update values in the grid.

It turns out that the error was in my code. My model did not have a private member reflecting the public property and so when the property changed it triggered the property change handler in an infinite loop. Ouch! Sorry rookie error. The good news is that the grid now reflects updates to the underlying model. Sorry for the inconvenience.
