Property Value

Type: System::String
A composite string that specifies how to format the items in the ItemsControl if they are displayed as strings.

ItemStringFormat can be a predefined, composite, or custom string format. For more information about string formats, see Formatting Types in the .NET Framework. If you set the ItemTemplate or ItemTemplateSelector of a ItemsControl, the ItemStringFormat property is ignored.

The following example uses the ItemStringFormat to specify the format of a list of DateTime objects.

<ListBox xmlns:sys="clr-namespace:System;assembly=mscorlib"
         ItemStringFormat="MMMM d, yyyy">
  <sys:DateTime>2004/3/4</sys:DateTime>
  <sys:DateTime>2004/8/9</sys:DateTime>
  <sys:DateTime>2005/10/14</sys:DateTime>
  <sys:DateTime>2005/4/8</sys:DateTime>
</ListBox>
