See more: C# XAML Dictionary Enum
So the problem is the following:

I have a Dictionary<FormatEnum,string> and I want to access this Dicitionary from XAML.
FormatEnum has the types Small, Medium and Big, and the string contains a URL to a picture.

I tried the following code:

<ItemsControl Name="MixControl">
   <Border CornerRadius="5" BorderThickness="2" BorderBrush="Black" Width="56" Height="56">
     <ImageBrush ImageSource="{Binding CoverUrls[{x:Static tracks:CoverFormat.Small}]}"/>

tracks is the namespacereference, and I read somewhere to use x:Static... But it won't work ...
Thanks for your help!

You can use a converter to change the enum into whatever you need. I use this in a WP7 app to convert a status enum to an image like a green one for good or a red one for an error.
