DXDataTemplateSelector Class

A declarative implementation of the DataTemplateSelector that can be defined in XAML.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.DXBinding

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Core.v21.2.dll

Declaration

public class DXDataTemplateSelector :
    DataTemplateSelector

Remarks

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.

Example

The code sample below illustrates how to select different data templates for different ListBox items using the DXDataTemplateSelector.

<DXDataTemplateSelector x:Key="myDataTemplateSelector">
    <DXDataTemplateTrigger Binding="{Binding Priority}" Value="1" Template="{StaticResource importantTaskTemplate}"/>
    <DXDataTemplateTrigger Template="{StaticResource myTaskTemplate}"/>
</DXDataTemplateSelector>
...
<ListBox Width="400" Margin="10"
         ItemsSource="{Binding Source={StaticResource myTodoList}}"
         ItemTemplateSelector="{StaticResource myDataTemplateSelector}"
         HorizontalContentAlignment="Stretch"/>
