ObservableCollection to IObservable

9 Nov

Ever wanted your ObservableCollection<T>’s CollectionChanged event wrapped up in an IObservable stream? Try this extension method:

public static IObservable<NotifyCollectionChangedEventArgs> ToStream(this ObservableCollection<T> source)
{
	var stream =  Observable.FromEvent(
			(EventHandler ev)
			   => new NotifyCollectionChangedEventHandler(ev),
			ev => source.CollectionChanged += ev,
			ev => source.CollectionChanged -= ev)
		.Select(e => e.EventArgs);
	return stream;
}
