  • Hi,

         The best solution for ur problem is binding element property.

         In expression blend it is pretty simple.

         1.right click the visibility of the controls u want to change, go to Data Binding.
         2.Click "Element Property"(in center)
          2.Select ur  checkbox from left column and select the isChecked property from right column.

    Thats it!!!!!!!!!

  •  After step 3, you should do these steps:
        4. Expand the Advanced properties by click on the expand button in Creating Data Binding dialog
        5. Click on the button for Value Converter, and select BooleanToVisibilityConverter in System.Windows.Controls

    Then click ok button to close the data binding dialog

    Do these steps because it cannot converter the Bool value to Visibility by default. So we should add a data converter for that
