expandable/collapsable grid RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

       I was curious if anyone came across a control that implements a collapsable grid.  I would like to have a grid where I can place various controls, and when the grid is displayed it would include an icon that would collapse the entire grid.  I want to have in my application a bunch of collapsable sections.

    Thanks in advance for your help,

  • Hey ddaoliver,

    I think what you might be looking for is the "Expander" control. It is an Expander with a child that is a Grid. The Grid is the container for the expanded content and when you hit the collapse button it completely hides the grid and any children of the grid. It is a normal WPF control so you should find it in your assets tab in Blend. I used an expander for something simular.

    Hope this helps,

  • Hello Brian,

       Thank you again for all your help.  I was not able to find the expander control in my expression blend 3.0 library.  However, I find an nice animated expander control at: http://mightymeaty.members.winisp.net/blacklight.silverlight/ that works for me...

    Thanks again for your help,
