public DataTemplateSelector ContentTemplateSelector { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A DataTemplateSelector descendant that chooses a template based on custom logic.


A template that defines the property content’s presentation is specified by the PropertyDefinitionBase.ContentTemplate property. If you have more than one template that can be used to render the property’s content, you can implement custom logic to choose the required template. To do this, derive from the DataTemplateSelector class, implement the SelectTemplate method that returns a template which meets the required condition, and assign it to the ContentTemplateSelector property.

If both the PropertyDefinitionBase.ContentTemplate and ContentTemplateSelector are specified, the property’s content is rendered using the template returned by the template selector. If the template selector returns null, the template specified by the PropertyDefinitionBase.ContentTemplate property is used.
