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