Hi,
nice work so far with the Wpf Contrib. Only I was wondering if there are plans to make a BreadCrumbControl and ??
I have tried to make something with Comboboxen, but maybe you guess are already planned to make something like that?

thanks

Hi Toon,

I don't have any definite plans, but that's a nice idea! I'll consider making one and adding it to the project. Are you looking for something like Vista's breadcrumbs in Explorer?

Also, if you've got something working, I'd love to see it.

Aelij.

Have you tried using a Treeview control with a custom template for the TreeViewItems. In stead of using an ItemsPresenter you can use a ComboBox. To display the 'next' item in the path, use a ContentPresenter (or something similar that renders the next TreeViewItem) and link it to the the 'SelectedItem'. Best to take a look at the Template of the TreeViewItem. Probably, the ItemsPanel should be changed into a Horizontal StackPanel.
