define data template button


  • i'm new to wpf. i'm have been using a book on wpf to learn it. it uses visual studio 2005. so when the program in the book uses data through external XML file that poses a problem in blend 2015. the step shows that there is a "define datatemplate " button in data binding window of ItemSource property of ListBox. but there is no such button there. I don't know how to define a data template for listbox and therefore can't populate it with xml data.

  • Hi MANS13,

    In Blend 2015, we create DataTemplate for a control through following steps.

    1. Right-click the ListBox control in Blend.
    2. Choose "Edit Additional Templates".
    3. Choose "Edit Generated Items (ItemTemplate)".
    4. Choose "Create Empty".
    5. It will pop up a Create DataTemplate Resource window to let us add DataTemplate for the ListBox.

    Best Regards,
