Cannot connect a slider control to GridLabels

ikonuk 4 weeks ago in Question 0

I am trying to use GridLabels to display time in a model:

GridLabels.Add(new BillboardTextItem


    Text = String.Format("{0} {1} {2}", "Time = ", Well.TubeAnimTime.ToString("N0"), "Sec"),

    Position = new Point3D(0, 0, 500),

    WorldDepthOffset = 100


I tried to test this functionality using a Slider Control:


    <TextBlock Text="Animation" />

    <Slider x:Name="AnimationSlider" Value="{Binding Well.TubeAnimTime}"

    ToolTip="{Binding ElementName=AnimationSlider, Path=Value}" Minimum="0" Maximum="100" Width="100"  Margin="10"/>


Although the label displays OK and responds to all movements and zooming, it does not respond to the Slider. I know Slider works ok because other elements in my model responds to it.

I tried to change the biding mode to TwoWay in:

<h:BillboardTextGroupVisual3D Background="Gray" Foreground="White" FontSize="12" Offset="2,2"

Padding="1" Items="{Binding GridLabels, Mode=OneWay, UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged}"

IsEnabled="{Binding IsChecked, ElementName=FreezeAxisLblsCheckBox}" />

VS 2017 does not allow me as the property seems to be readonly.

I really like Helix Toolkit but I seem to be slow learner. Anyone can explain why the binding with the Slider does not work. Or is there any easier way to display the time parameter in a distinct box like GridLabels?
