What would be an alternative to x:Reference?

I have XAML that looks as follows:

<DataTemplate x:Key="CdTeThickness"> <Grid> <Grid.RowDefinitions> <RowDefinition Height="Auto" /> <RowDefinition Height="*" /> </Grid.RowDefinitions> <StackPanel Grid.Row = "0" Orientation="Horizontal"> <CheckBox x:Name="DisplayMarkers" Content="Display Data Points" Margin="8,5,0,5" HorizontalAlignment="Left" IsChecked="False"/> <CheckBox x:Name="DisplayIndicator" Content="Display Indicator" Margin="8,5,0,5" HorizontalAlignment="Left" IsChecked="False"/> </StackPanel> <vf:Chart Grid.Row = "1" Style="{StaticResource chartStyle}" IndicatorEnabled="{Binding Source={x:Reference DisplayIndicator}, Path=IsChecked}"> <vf:Chart.Titles> <vf:Title Text="{Binding Chart.ChartTitle}"/> </vf:Chart.Titles>

My understanding is that x:Reference is not widely supported yet. However, this is the only way I was able to bind to the desired property (DisplayIndicator), as shown in the screen shot. Can someone suggest an alternative to x:Reference that will work in this situation?


Often you can use an ElementName binding, however x:Reference is actually well supported.

{Binding IsChecked, ElementName=DisplayIndicator}


Also, as an alternative to direct binding, you could bind both the Checkbox.IsChecked and the Chart.IndicatorEnabled enabled to a property (e.g. ChartDisplayMarkers) on your viewmodel.
