The DXDataTemplateSelector allows you to define a simple template selection logic in XAML, so you do not need to create a DataTemplateSelector ancestor in code-behind. The DXDataTemplateSelector works like WPF triggers.
The code sample below illustrates how to select different data templates for different ListBox items using the DXDataTemplateSelector.
The DXDataTemplateTrigger requires specifying both the DXTriggerBase.Binding and DXTriggerBase.Value properties to return a data template that satisfies the condition (that is, the specified property is set to a specified value). When both the Property and Value properties are not specified, the DXDataTemplateTrigger serves as the default template source.
You can assign a template to DXDataTemplateTrigger explicitly or as a static resource only. Dynamic resources are not supported.
The last positive trigger provides the template (like regular WPF triggers).
The DXDataTemplateSelector becomes immutable (you cannot modify a trigger collection as well as change trigger properties) once its template selection logic is called.
