Here’s a good looking, light-weight GroupBox control for Silverlight 2 RTW.
According to Shawn Burke on the Microsoft Silverlight Toolkit Team, “groupbox is on the list but not in this control set“
So until then, here’s a fully functional and very simple GroupBox control that you might even want to use after the Toolkit includes the GroupBox for sake of the tiny runtime size (only 9 KB).
To use all you need is:
In case anyone is interested, I did find one other groupbox control out there but it was created before the RTW and requires a little work to get it running on RTW and the spacing around the header was a bit off. Nevertheless, kudos to Lee for putting together something to use way back in March.
Dec 16, 2008: I added source code for C# and fixed a bug allowing the groupbox to be truely transparent by clipping the Border control where the header goes instead of relying on ZOrder to hide that portion of the border control.
