QuestionCreating and Binding UI objects in C# instead of XAML (WPF) Pin
Member 1484454026-May-20 12:04

he application that I'm creating has a menu comprised of labels/headers. When you click on a menu item (a xaml Label) a drop down appears with subheaders related to that item. However, I need to make this menu customizable via XML. The idea is this, the XML outlines the header names as well as the subheader names for each menu item.

<MenuHeaders>
    <Header Value="Something">
        <NestedHeader1>NestedHeader1</NestedHeader1>
        <NestedHeader2>NestedHeader2</NestedHeader2>
    </Header>
    <Header Value="Something Else">
        <NestedHeader1>NestedHeader1</NestedHeader1>
        <NestedHeader2>NestedHeader2</NestedHeader2>
    </Header>
</MenuHeaders>

I am able to read the XML using XDocument and bind a Dependency Property to the label context. The problem is that I do not know how many menu items might be in the XML file. I wanted to avoid creating a ton of labels and dependency properties for the label content to bind to. Instead of creating labels in xaml and binding to a property in C#, can I create UI items in C# and populate them with elements from a list at run time? There's some code below of how I'm getting and binding the data to a preexisting label.

C#:

<pre>
 public string HeaderName
 {
      get => (string)GetValue(HeaderNameProperty);
      set => SetValue(HeaderNameProperty, value);
 }

 public static readonly DependencyProperty HeaderNameProperty =
        DependencyProperty.Register("HeaderName", typeof(string), typeof(MainWindow));

 private void LoadHeaders()
{
    var msg = new List<string>(0);
    XDocument doc = null;

    try
    {
        doc = XDocument.Load("MenuHeaders.xml");
    }
    catch (Exception e)
    {
        msg.Add(string.Format("Unable to open file:{0}", ""));
        msg.Add(e.Message);
    }

    if(doc != null)
    {
        var allHeaders = doc.Descendants("Header").ToList();
        List<string> headers = new List<string>();

        foreach(XNode node in allHeaders)
        {
            XElement element = node as XElement;
            foreach(XAttribute attribute in element.Attributes())
            {
                headers.Add(attribute.Value);
            }
        }
        HeaderName = headers[0];
    }
}

XAML:

<stackpanel x:name="Stack">


(As you may have noticed, I'm only adding the Header attributes to the List and none of the subheaders. This code is not complete but it's what I currently have) I will appreciate any help.
