ListView of CheckBox with content binding

08 May 2021, 08:24

Hi,

I am trying to create a ListView of checkbox items, with data binding to a data model created in c++, but unable to make the checkbox items display. Not sure if there is anything I missed?
I referenced the tutorial here.

The XAML code is as follows:
<UserControl
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"
    xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006"
    mc:Ignorable="d"
    xmlns:noesis="clr-namespace:NoesisGUIExtensions;assembly=Noesis.GUI.Extensions"
    x:Class="FCheckBoxLisControl"
    x:Name="CheckBoxListElement">
    <UserControl.Resources>
        <Style x:Key="CheckBoxListHeaderStyle" TargetType="GridViewColumnHeader">
            <Setter Property="Background" Value="Cyan"/>
            <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="Navy"/>
            <Setter Property="Visibility" Value="Collapsed"/>
        </Style>
        <DataTemplate x:Key="CheckBoxListHeaderTemplate" DataType="GridViewColumnHeader">
            <TextBlock Text="{Binding Header}"/>
        </DataTemplate>
        <DataTemplate x:Key="CheckBoxListCellTemplate">
            <CheckBox Margin="0,5,0,0"
                      Content="{Binding Name}"/>
        </DataTemplate>
        <DataTemplate x:Key="CheckBoxItemTemplate">
            <TextBlock Text="{Binding Name}">
                <TextBlock.ToolTip>
                    <ToolTip Visibility="Collapsed">
                        <TextBlock Text="{Binding Description}"/>
                    </ToolTip>
                </TextBlock.ToolTip>
            </TextBlock>
        </DataTemplate>
    </UserControl.Resources>
    <StackPanel Orientation="Vertical" HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Center">
        <ListView x:Name="CheckBoxList"
                  SelectionMode="Multiple"
                  ItemsSource="{Binding ItemList}"
                  ItemTemplate="{StaticResource CheckBoxItemTemplate}">
            <ListView.View>
                <GridView>
                    <GridViewColumn HeaderTemplate="{StaticResource CheckBoxListHeaderTemplate}"
                                    HeaderContainerStyle="{StaticResource CheckBoxListHeaderStyle}"
                                    CellTemplate="{StaticResource CheckBoxListCellTemplate}"/>
                </GridView>
            </ListView.View>
        </ListView>
    </StackPanel>
</UserControl>

Re: ListView of CheckBox with content binding

Are you including this FCheckBoxListControl as part of another xaml?

As described in the Unreal tutorial, you need to specify the xaml that should be loaded (LoadComponent) when constructing the user control, otherwise it will create a simple control with no content. And you should specify a namespace for the control name, so it can be correctly mapped in Blend and xaml. Finally you will need to register the component in your module so it can be created by the xaml parser.

I tried your code with the changes I mentioned and I was able to see the list with the check boxes. Could you confirm if that was your problem?
