LongListSelector ItemsSource not working RRS feed

    In my Windows Phone 8.1 store app I am having trouble to show values in LongListSelector. Here is .xaml and .cs files.

    Am I missing something?

    <controls:LongListSelector Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0"  VerticalAlignment="Stretch" 
                                               DataContext="{Binding ElementName=PageWorld}"
                                               ItemsSource="{Binding Countries}"  RenderTransformOrigin="0.5,0.5" BorderBrush="Blue" BorderThickness="2">
                                <ListBoxItem Margin="0,6,0,6">
                                        <TextBlock Text="{Binding Title}" TextWrapping="NoWrap"  Foreground="Black"/>

    In code behing I am binding values as follows.

    private ObservableCollection<Country> _countries;
            public ObservableCollection<Country> Countries
                get { return _countries; }
                    _countries = value;
            public World()
                navigationHelper = new NavigationHelper(this);
                navigationHelper.LoadState += this.NavigationHelper_LoadState;
                navigationHelper.SaveState += this.NavigationHelper_SaveState;
                Countries = GetCountries();
     public class Country
                public string Title { get; set; }
            private ObservableCollection<Country> GetCountries()
                ObservableCollection<Country> countries = new ObservableCollection<Country>();
                for (int i = 0; i < 100; i++)
                    Country country = new Country();
                    country.Title = "Name" + i;
                return countries;

  • Hi reyou,

    With only code snippet I cannot successfully debugging the app, could you provide more information about your project for instance you could share a repro demo for us.

    Simply create a test project by your code, looks like the issue is on your data source binding.

    I've change the code like below, works fine now:

    //remove DataContext and ItemSource since I don't know how you implement this

    <phone:LongListSelector x:Name="list" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" RenderTransformOrigin="0.5,0.5" BorderBrush="Blue" BorderThickness="2" Margin="10,10,0,0"> <phone:LongListSelector.RenderTransform> <CompositeTransform/> </phone:LongListSelector.RenderTransform> <phone:LongListSelector.ItemTemplate> <DataTemplate> <ListBoxItem Margin="0,6,0,6"> <StackPanel Background="Blue"> <TextBlock Text="{Binding Title}" TextWrapping="NoWrap" Foreground="Black"/> </StackPanel> </ListBoxItem> </DataTemplate> </phone:LongListSelector.ItemTemplate> </phone:LongListSelector>

    In the backend cs file:


    Countries = GetCountries(); // manually binding the Countries to XAML. list.ItemsSource = Countries;
