Video tutorial demonstrating how you can bind a ComboBox to an Image control and load the images at runtime just by specifying their filename.

using UnityEngine;
using System.Collections;
using Noesis;

public class Animal: BaseComponent
    private string name_;

    public string Name
        get { return name_; }
        set { name_ = value; NotifyPropertyChanged("Name"); }

    private ImageSource image_;

    public ImageSource Image
        get { return image_; }
        set { image_ = value; NotifyPropertyChanged("Image"); }

public class ViewModel: BaseComponent
    private Collection collection_;

    public Collection Animals
        get { return collection_; }
        set { collection_ = value; NotifyPropertyChanged("Animals"); }

    public ViewModel()
        collection_ = new Collection();

public class Test : MonoBehaviour
    // Use this for initialization
    void Start()
        var tex0 = new TextureSource(Resources.Load("cat") as Texture2D);
        var cat = new Animal { Name = "Cat", Image = tex0 };
        var tex1 = new TextureSource(Resources.Load("dog") as Texture2D);
        var dog = new Animal { Name = "Dog", Image = tex1 };

        var vm = new ViewModel();

        var noesisGUI = GetComponent<NoesisGUIPanel>();
        var root = noesisGUI.GetRoot<Grid>();
	d:DesignWidth="640" d:DesignHeight="480">
		<DataTemplate x:Key="DataTemplate1">
				<TextBlock HorizontalAlignment="Left" Height="25" Margin="0,0,-136.54,-5" TextWrapping="Wrap" Text="{Binding Name}" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="187"/>
	<ComboBox x:Name="comboBox" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Height="29" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="241" ItemsSource="{Binding Animals}" ItemTemplate="{DynamicResource DataTemplate1}"/>
	<Image HorizontalAlignment="Left" Height="199" Margin="0,34,0,0" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="232" Source="{Binding SelectedItem.Image, ElementName=comboBox}"/>

Great tutorial,

Noesis is a really great tool for unity GUI, It is a really good idee to share skills with quality tutorials.
We really need it.

thanks you very much !

I agree we need more step-by-step tutorials. There are a lot of examples of finished XAMLs, but not many explain how you actually make one and how you interact with them in a game.

Hi, could you post the code for this example for version 1.2?

we have plans to move all the code of these samples to github. Meanwhile, the Data Binding Tutorial contains all the samples you probably need to start familiarizing yourself with bindings.
