Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Style
The Style that is applied to the item container for each child item.

You use this property or the ItemContainerStyleSelector 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.

The following example creates a TreeView that uses one style for items in its first level and another style for items in its second level. The style for the first level is set in the ItemContainerStyle property of the TreeView. The style for the second level is set in the ItemContainerStyle property of the HierarchicalDataTemplate.

<StackPanel>
  <StackPanel.Resources>
    <src:TreeViewData x:Key="dataItems"/>


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

      <!--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>

      <!--Set the foreground of the items in the second level
          to Navy.-->
      <HierarchicalDataTemplate.ItemContainerStyle>
        <Style TargetType="TreeViewItem">
          <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="Navy"/>
        </Style>
      </HierarchicalDataTemplate.ItemContainerStyle>  
    </HierarchicalDataTemplate>
  </StackPanel.Resources>

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

      <!--Expand each TreeViewItem in the first level and 
          set its foreground to Green.-->
      <Style TargetType="TreeViewItem">
        <Setter Property="IsExpanded" Value="True"/>
        <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="Green"/>
      </Style>
    </TreeView.ItemContainerStyle>
  </TreeView>
</StackPanel>

The following example creates the data that is used in the previous example.

Public Class TreeViewData
    Inherits ObservableCollection(Of ItemsForTreeView)

    Public Sub New()
        For i As Integer = 0 To 99
            Dim item As New ItemsForTreeView()
            item.TopLevelName = "item " & i.ToString()
            Add(item)
        Next
    End Sub
End Class


Public Class ItemsForTreeView
    Private _TopLevelName As String
    Public Property TopLevelName() As String
        Get
            Return _TopLevelName
        End Get
        Set(ByVal value As String)
            _TopLevelName = value
        End Set
    End Property
    Private level2Items As ObservableCollection(Of String)

    Public ReadOnly Property SecondLevelItems() As ObservableCollection(Of String)
        Get
            If level2Items Is Nothing Then
                level2Items = New ObservableCollection(Of String)()
            End If
            Return level2Items
        End Get
    End Property

    Public Sub New()
        For i As Integer = 0 To 9
            SecondLevelItems.Add("Second Level " & i.ToString())
        Next
    End Sub
End Class
