For those new to message boards please try to follow a few simple rules when posting your question.
Choose the correct forum for your message. Posting a VB.NET question in the C++ forum will end in tears.
Be specific! Don't ask "can someone send me the code to create an application that does 'X'. Pinpoint exactly what it is you need help with.
Keep the subject line brief, but descriptive. eg "File Serialization problem"
Keep the question as brief as possible. If you have to include code, include the smallest snippet of code you can.
Be careful when including code that you haven't made a typo. Typing mistakes can become the focal point instead of the actual question you asked.
Do not remove or empty a message if others have replied. Keep the thread intact and available for others to search and read. If your problem was answered then edit your message and add "[Solved]" to the subject line of the original post, and cast an approval vote to the one or several answers that really helped you.
If you are posting source code with your question, place it inside <pre></pre> tags. We advise you also check the "Encode "<" (and other HTML) characters when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Use HTML in this post" check box is checked.
Be courteous and DON'T SHOUT. Everyone here helps because they enjoy helping others, not because it's their job.
Please do not post links to your question into an unrelated forum such as the lounge. It will be deleted. Likewise, do not post the same question in more than one forum.
Do not be abusive, offensive, inappropriate or harass anyone on the boards. Doing so will get you kicked off and banned. Play nice.
If you have a school or university assignment, assume that your teacher or lecturer is also reading these forums.
No advertising or soliciting.
We reserve the right to move your posts to a more appropriate forum or to delete anything deemed inappropriate or illegal.
A CheckBox is an interactive element, but a report is static, hence it does not make sense.
If you want to display a Boolean value in that style, you could use images, and add the "checked" image for true, the "unchecked" image for false instead.
Don't use a List<Unit> as the collection behind your ItemsSource use ObservableCollection<Unit> as this raises change notifications when the number of items in the list changes. As far as the rest of your question goes, I'm really not clear what you're trying to achieve here.
Yea I understand about the List / ObservableCollection bit.
I'll have another go
On my form, which allows you enter new units and change their details, one of the details is 'which is the parent unit'. This is a combobox, which should allow the user to select from the list of units.
Its the correct setup of this combobox that I'm having problems with.
I *think* I should be able to achieve this with pure XAML, but I'm not sure how.
As I think the pure XAML solution will also have the advantage that if a new unit is added on the form, the combobox lists will all contain the new unit (as they're all the same source in some sense), which my current solution of a List wont have. And unless I've missed something, just changing List to ObservableCollection wont resolve that will it?
It would help if you could show us your ViewModel. That way I should be able to get a clearer idea. As it is, I can see 3 or 4 things that you could be asking for and I'd hate to send you up a blind alley. Oh, and if you need to add new items, you definitely need the OC. A list will not notify the ComboBox that there are new items.
