How to: Use the Master-Detail Pattern with Hierarchical XML Data

This example shows how to implement the master-detail scenario with XML data.

This example is the XML data version of the example discussed in How to: Use the Master-Detail Pattern with Hierarchical Data. In this example, the data is from the file League.xml. Note how the third ListBox control tracks selection changes in the second ListBox by binding to its SelectedValue property.
