PropertyGrid dynamically update SelectedObject binding property

I like to dynamically update the propertygrid on my drawing canvas when an item (CItem) on the drawing canvas is selected

I have a propertygrid in the view bound to the drawing canvas which is the viewmodel and also has a SelectedObject property:
<xctk:PropertyGrid x:Name="_propertyGrid" Margin="0"
    SelectedObject="{Binding ElementName=MyDrawingCanvas, Path=SelectedObject}">
In my viewmodel I have an Observable<CItem> object named SelectedObject:
public Observable<CItem> SelectedObject;
And the command to update it:
private void NotifyPropertyGrid_Executed(object sender, ExecutedRoutedEventArgs e)
  var selectedItems = from item in SelectionService.CurrentSelection.OfType<CItem>()
    where (item.ParentID) == Guid.Empty && (item.IsSelected)
    select item;

  if (selectedItems.Count() == 1)
    SelectedObject = selectedItems.SingleOrDefault();
However, the propertygrid does not get updated.

I got the Observable<T> implementation from here:

Many thanks

Can you submit a testable sample so we can test this scenario ?

Hi BoucherS,

I got it working by doing this
var propGrid = GetPropertyGrid(this);
if (propGrid != null)
    var selectedItem = selectedItems.SingleOrDefault();
    propGrid.SelectedObject = selectedItem;
Thank you.
