Some weeks ago a friend of mine told me about System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations. It’s a relatively new addition to the framework, mainly related (mh, was it Mvc or Dynamic Data? I’m sure he told me, but I can’t remember). Although I’m more focussed on client side development (WinForms + WPF), what he told me made me curious enough to spend some time with it in order to investigate whether the DataAnnotation framework could be reused for validation in a desktop app.
