Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Controls.StyleSelector
A StyleSelector that chooses which style to use as the ItemContainerStyle. The default is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

You use the ItemContainerStyle property to set a style to affect the appearance of the elements that contain the data items. For example, for TreeView, the generated containers are TreeViewItem controls; for Menu, they are MenuItem controls. If you have more than one style defined and need to supply logic to choose which one to apply, then you use the ItemContainerStyleSelector property instead of the ItemContainerStyle property. Note that this property is ignored if the ItemContainerStyle property is set.

The following example creates a TreeView that uses the ItemContainerStyle of a HierarchicalDataTemplate to choose between two styles for items in the second level of the TreeView.

<StackPanel Name="sp1" x:FieldModifier="public">
  <StackPanel.Resources>
    <src:TreeViewData x:Key="dataItems"/>

    <Style x:Key="TreeViewItemStyle1"  TargetType="TreeViewItem">
      <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="Navy"/>
      <Setter Property="FontStyle" Value="Italic"/>
    </Style>

    <Style x:Key="TreeViewItemStyle2"  TargetType="TreeViewItem">
      <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="Green"/>
      <Setter Property="FontWeight" Value="Bold"/>
    </Style>

    <src:TreeViewItemStyleSelector x:Key="tviSelector"/>

    <HierarchicalDataTemplate DataType="{x:Type src:ItemsForTreeView}"
                              ItemsSource="{Binding Path=SecondLevelItems}"
                              ItemContainerStyleSelector="{StaticResource tviSelector}">

      <!--Display the TopLevelName property in the first level.-->
      <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=TopLevelName}"/>

      <!--Display each string in the SecondLevelItems property in
          the second level.-->
      <HierarchicalDataTemplate.ItemTemplate>
        <DataTemplate>
          <TextBlock Text="{Binding}"/>
        </DataTemplate>
      </HierarchicalDataTemplate.ItemTemplate>

    </HierarchicalDataTemplate>
  </StackPanel.Resources>

  <TreeView Height="200" ItemsSource="{Binding Source={StaticResource dataItems}}"
            VirtualizingStackPanel.IsVirtualizing="True">
    <TreeView.ItemContainerStyle>

      <!--Expand each TreeViewItem in the first level.-->
      <Style TargetType="TreeViewItem">
        <Setter Property="IsExpanded" Value="True"/>
      </Style>
    </TreeView.ItemContainerStyle>
  </TreeView>
</StackPanel>
