ItemsControl.ItemContainerStyleSelector Property


Gets or sets custom style-selection logic for a style that can be applied to each generated container element.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public StyleSelector ItemContainerStyleSelector { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Controls.StyleSelector

A StyleSelector object that contains logic that chooses the style to use as the ItemContainerStyle. The default is null.

You use the ItemContainerStyle property to set a style to affect the appearance of the elements that contain the data items. For example, for ListBox, the generated containers are ListBoxItem controls; for ComboBox, they are ComboBoxItem 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 ItemsControl provides great flexibility for visual customization and provides many styling and templating properties. To affect the layout of the items, use the ItemsPanel property. If you are using grouping on your control, you can use the GroupStyle or GroupStyleSelector property. To specify the visualization of data objects, use the ItemTemplate or ItemTemplateSelector property. For more information about when to specify an ItemTemplate, see Data Templating Overview.
