    Good video!


    One question: The top control was still a ListBox, but why did you just not use a WrapPanel as top item ? Then you did not have to replace the StackPanel with a WrapPanel.


    It's hard to get the different templates if nobody ever told you, and even then it's still kind of hard and you still sometimes select the wrong one. (i do)

    The video is not really clear. But the presentation is really useful.

    Yes, it was our poor attempt at geek humor Smiley wrapped around a solid topic.

    There is a ton you can do with the listbox and the data/item template is key. I used JP's swivel behavior in this demo ...



    you can see that i've used the data template in multiple ways... just flip the UI to see a custom data template drag and drop example.


    It's great for designers like myself.

    Nice to see you using my swivel behavior. That's a nice sample of nested swivels ... and of a "tab" control too Smiley


    Yes, templates are very nice.
