#835 – Displaying Custom Content in a GroupBox Header

You normally set the Header property of a GroupBox to some text.

        <GroupBox Header="Julius Caesar">
            <Label Content="100BC - 44BC, etc."/>
        </GroupBox>
        <GroupBox Header="Augustus">
            <Label Content="63BC - 14AD, etc."/>
        </GroupBox>

You can, however, set the Header to anything that you like, including a panel containing other controls.

        <GroupBox>
            <GroupBox.Header>
                <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
                    <Label Content="Julius Caesar"/>
                    <Image Source="Caesar.jpg" Height="48"/>
                </StackPanel>
            </GroupBox.Header>
            <Label Content="100BC - 44BC, etc."/>
        </GroupBox>
        <GroupBox>
            <GroupBox.Header>
                <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
                    <Label Content="Augustus"/>
                    <Image Source="Augustus.jpg" Height="48"/>
                </StackPanel>
            </GroupBox.Header>
            <Label Content="63BC - 14AD, etc."/>
        </GroupBox>
