what does this mean?
"This property can be used as the source for data binding. When this property is modified, it dispatches the propertyChange event."
how would i impliment this to find when the value changes?
Assign event listener to the target class having this property to that event type PropertyChangeEvent.PROPERTY_CHANGE
and you'll have it handled post factum. It's better to use setter&getter approach to handle value changes for particular property.
