EditableAttribute data modeling attribute

EditableAttribute sets whether users should be able to change the value of the class property.

public class Employee
{
    [Editable(false)]
    public string FirstName { get; set; }
}

Simple usage example in XAML application

<Window x:Class="WpfApplication.MainWindow"
        xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
        xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
        xmlns:wpfApplication="clr-namespace:WpfApplication"
        Height="70" Width="360" Title="Display name example">

    <Window.Resources>
        <wpfApplication:EditableConverter x:Key="EditableConverter"/>
    </Window.Resources>

    <StackPanel Margin="5">
        <!-- TextBox Text (FirstName property value) -->
        <!-- TextBox IsEnabled (Editable attribute) -->
        <TextBox Text="{Binding Employee.FirstName, Mode=TwoWay, UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged}" 
                 IsEnabled="{Binding Employee, Converter={StaticResource EditableConverter}, ConverterParameter=FirstName}"/>
    </StackPanel>
    
</Window>

namespace WpfApplication
{
    /// <summary>
    /// Interaction logic for MainWindow.xaml
    /// </summary>
    public partial class MainWindow : Window
    {
        private Employee _employee = new Employee() { FirstName = "This is not editable"};

        public MainWindow()

            DataContext = this;
        }

        public Employee Employee

            set { _employee = value; }

            // defaults to true if not found
            var attribute = value.GetType()
                .GetProperty(parameter.ToString())

            return attribute != null ? attribute.AllowEdit : true;
        }

        public object ConvertBack(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, CultureInfo culture)
        {
            throw new NotImplementedException();
        }
    }
