FlowControl ImageType binding?

Recommended Posts

@Jason Carr   Is there a variable exposed that would enable something like this... I'd love the user to choose what game images to use via Big Box options instead of coding alternate XAML views 

Cheers in advance,

Dave

    <coverFlow:FlowControl Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="0" Grid.ColumnSpan="9"
      x:Name="FlowControl" ImageType="{Binding GameImageType}"
      CurveAmount="0" CameraZPosition="8.4" VisibleCount="7" PageSize="14" ItemZPosition="2.5" SelectedItemZPosition="4.0" Spacing="2.5"  >
     <coverFlow:FlowControl.CoverFactory>
      <coverFlow:HorizontalWheelCoverFactory />
     </coverFlow:FlowControl.CoverFactory>
    </coverFlow:FlowControl>

Sorry I know nothing of the XAML, but there are already themes that let you use the "switch image" key/button to do this already, some views are hard coded, some let you switch on the fly.

thanks Neil, all my views are hardcoded, but i would love to know which Theme or Themes allow a key/button to switch the Game Image Types on the fly.

As far as I know does the "change image type" button/key only work for CoverFlow elements in non-wheel views. In the wheel views it only allows you to set a specific image type.

Hey Cid! long time no exchange messages.  Thats what i thought too, coverflow appears to allow switching (and i don't want to use coverflow) and wheel types are fixed (have to be hard coded in the xaml view)  i wish that wasn't the case :-(  if only the value of the "options - Game Image" was accessible, would make life (coding) so much easier

Bummer :-(  I figured it would be a fairly simple thing to do ... compared to everything else going on.
