Scrollable "area"? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I'm trying to create a simple drop down list which will slide down when a user hovers over say, a circle element.

    How would I be able to achieve this? Also, I would like items to appear in that area, and if there are alot of items, I want it so that the user can scroll down the list of items and be able to click on them to do whatever.

    Is this possible and how can I achieve it? I will be using Silverlight 2.0 and VS2008.

  • You can use the ScrollViewer to create a scrollable region.  For the mouseover appearance, you might consider using a Popup.  I have an example on my site (http://adoguy.com).

  • Yes that's basically what I am after.... from what I saw on this page:




    I am however unable to open the project in either VS2005 or VS2008 - it says that the project type isn't supported by this installation. Any ideas?

    Again, that is pretty much what I want where, if I have a "playlist", I want items to appear in the similar view as on that playlist page of yours. How would I be able to do this?

  • Hello,

    You can check-out this post http://www.codeproject.com/KB/silverlight/DropDownMenuSilverlight2.aspx

    but you will need to add scrollviewer in that sample..
