Prism.Validation

The Prism.Validation is based on Prism. It allows you to use Validations based on the ValidationAttributes in your Model, ViewModel and so on. Because most of you want to share your code acroos the .NET application model (also known as App models) the Prism.Validation is shipped as PCL.

Validation

Model classes are a good example which can be used to share across different platforms. Also you may want to add some basic validations into the model with DataAnnotaions.

The Prism Core Libary doesn't provide a validation implementation, so the Prism.Validation libary is filling this gap. The validation was taken over from the UWP ValidatableBindableBase with litte adjustments.

With the Prism.Validation you could share your model with DataAnnotaion between wpf, xamarin and uwp.
