Hi All,

I am basing my applications ample in the InventoryDemo and utilizing Csla.Xaml and the ObjectFactory.  How would I go about searching for a particular Product, Warehouse, or Customer utilizing that example?

I was using the MVVMLight toolkit a while ago and figured somethings out with that by using properties and the OnChange event to trigger the requerying of the object, but I am battling with getting my head around triggering a change here and also how to use the Criteria. 

There are some instances where I want to pass multiple criteria so I probably will have a search button for multiple search items but may have the search triggered automatically if only one item is being searched on.  Any help/guidance/ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Actually, this is a non-issue now because I am using the Telerik Rad Controls for Silverlight.  Once I have my readonly list of objects, I use the Telerik RadDataFilter and the RadGridView and the filtering and grouping is handled by the controls.

The Telerik controls rock.  If you haven't used them, check them out.  They work great with Rocky's MVVM objects and are just so easy to use.
