Which is often extremely silly, unnecessary, unmaintainable and not the right way to go.

1) If you write a generic converter, you can often re-use it, not only for multiple properties, but multiple views.

By generic converter, no, I don't mean one that converts empty strings to "(Empty)" and another one that converts falses to "Off" for example. I mean, one that say could convert any object & value to any other object & value.

A few EXCELLENT examples of true GENERIC converters: a map converter and a math converter

Too often I see BoolToVisibilityConverter and InverseBoolToVisibilityConverter, etc. when you could have done both and then some with the generic MapConverter.

2) Other then the generic converters, the other option is of course triggers. I'm betting I could re-write 90% of your bool view state properties as one line triggers.
