Is there a WrapPanel-like control in WinRT? I am not referring to the WrapGrid and VariableSizedWrapGrid, which can only be used as ItemsPanel.

VariabeSizedWrapGrid can be used outside the context of an ItemPanelTemplate in Windows Consumer Preview.

As mentioned in my first post, I am not referring to the WrapGrid and VariableSizedWrapGrid.
The WrapGrid doesn't work outside of the ItemPanelTemplate.

Hey there, I was looking for the same functionality for a metro app. The best there is a silverlight 2.0 implementation of WrapPanel on CodeProject (http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/24141/WrapPanel-for-Silverlight-2-0) You can just copy paste the class, but you would have to use different namespaces.
In my case, I had use it as the item host of a ListBox, and worked out perfectly. I am not sure if it would help you.

It seems you are looking for a " WrapPanel-like control" that can be used outside of the itemPaneltemplate.
The VariabeSizedWrapGrid which Harikrishna mentioned above meets your requirement.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to elaborate it so we can help.
Have a nice day!

Is there any news on this?
The advantage of the WrapPanel was that its cells fit perfectly to each individual item. This cannot be achieved with the VSWG.
