BindTo<TValue, TTarget, TTValue>(IObservable<TValue>, TTarget, Expression<Func<TTarget, TTValue>>, object, IBindingTypeConverter) Method


BindTo takes an Observable stream and applies it to a target property. Conceptually it is similar to.
Subscribe(x => = x)
, but allows you to use child properties without the null checks.
