#397 – Rich ListBox Content Using Data Binding, part III

This post continues the example of displaying information about a series of movies in a ListBox, using data binding.

In previous posts, we created code for a Movie class and filled an ObservableCollection<Movie> with movie data.

To complete this example, we just need the XAML code.  Below is the XAML that defines a ListBox that contains the list of movies.  We set the ItemTemplate property to a DataTemplate that defines the layout of each item in the list.  We then use data binding to bind to properties of the Movie class.

        <ListBox ItemsSource="{Binding MovieList}" SnapsToDevicePixels="True">
                    <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
                        <Image Source="{Binding Image}"/>
                        <StackPanel Orientation="Vertical">
                            <Label Content="{Binding Title}" FontWeight="Bold"/>
                            <Label Content="{Binding Year}"/>

                        <Border BorderBrush="Black" BorderThickness="0.5"/>

                        <StackPanel Orientation="Vertical">
                            <Label Content="Actors:"/>
                            <Label Content="{Binding ActorLead}" Margin="10,0"/>
                            <Label Content="{Binding ActressLead}" Margin="10,0"/>

                        <Border BorderBrush="Black" BorderThickness="0.5"/>

                        <StackPanel Orientation="Vertical">
                            <Label Content="Director:"/>
                            <Label Content="{Binding Director}" Margin="10,0"/>
