  • Start with a simple Silverlight client project, build and test your control within that project.  Once you have it data binding to backing data within your local control project, then take the control portion of your test project and place it within your control extension, change the bindings in your XAML in accordance to the link and steps provided above. 

    A list, a data grid, a button or a textbox. It should not matter the control, you will need to follow the same steps regardless in order to establish a control extension with associated bindings.

    Start by following the example shown in the link above then adapt to your list control needs.
