  • How do I add Bullet Points in SilverLight 4.0?


    I tried the <ul> </ul> HTML code and it doesn't work. Is there a special code in SilverLight for Bullet Points?

  • Hi,

    You can try something like this:

    <ListBox x:Name="myListBox" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" Margin="5,2,2,2" Height="150"

    HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" Width="240" LocalModel:DiseaseTreatment.AddMouseWheelSupport="true">



    <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">

    <Image Source="bullet.png" VerticalAlignment="Center" Height="9" Width="7"></Image>

    <TextBlock x:Name="myTextBloxk" Margin="5,2,0,0" VerticalAlignment="Top" Text="{Binding Path=Name}"></TextBlock>

  •  thanks Varshav for the swift reply, I appreciate it.

    Do I have to upload the image (bullet.png) somewhere for this to work?

  • Yes, You can create one folder named images or anything in your Silverlight Application and change the source path of it.

    Rest all will work fine, let me know if you have any issue.

  • You can use Richtext box to format the text the way you want.

  •  Should I write my text only inside the <text block> tags? </ text block>


    and how do I call the bullet? (by <img> tag?)

  • Yes, Textblock will have your text and image will have the bullet point which you want. If you just want * as Bullets then just add TextBlock instead of image and put its Text="*"

  • I get an error when I use the code. Maybe because I'm pulling the text from the DataBase (I forgot to mention that). My website takes the text from a mySQL database and present it in SilverLight 4.0.

  • You have to Bind your text with TextBlock. What error you are getting? Post your sample code.
