Josh Smith: Filtering items in a listbox, and a comment about Ian Griffith’s flippable 3d list
- More great code examples to use in your project from Josh. This one will be used by me in XamlT‘s search box in the top right. Searching for Items in a ListBox shows how to filter a list of items that contain an instance of the text you have typed in.
- Josh also points to Ian Griffith’s Flippable 3D List: I love the effect and the capability of flipping the items. This leads to a bunch of possibilities and questions:
- However, it felt odd to me that when you go from the back to the front it wasn’t just a reverse of the first animation. That would give it the sense that you are returning to the initial state. (my wife, an end-user agreed the UI was cool, but didn’t agree with me on this critique).
- It would also be interesting to see how this should work in a scenario with Selection enabled (perhaps in a ListBox)…how would you put keyboard accessibility into this model, how would you hint there is more data to be explored.
- Although it wouldn’t work only in loose XAML, It might be more efficient to build a special panel that can generate the Viewport3D on the fly when needed, instead of creating one per item.
