The ItemCollection is in ItemsSource mode. (When the ItemsSource property is set, the Items collection will be made read-only and fixed-size.)

The following example shows how to use this method. In the example, sbar is a StatusBar control, which is an ItemsControl.

private void MakeProgressBar(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
  TextBlock txtb = new TextBlock();
  txtb.Text = "Progress of download.";
  ProgressBar progressbar = new ProgressBar();
  Duration duration = new Duration(TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10));
  DoubleAnimation doubleanimation = 
                             new DoubleAnimation(100.0, duration);
  ToolTip ttprogbar = new ToolTip();
  ttprogbar.Content = "Shows the progress of a download.";
  progressbar.ToolTip = (ttprogbar);

For the complete example, see StatusBar Sample.
