This post describes how to style a ListBox in Silverlight 2 beta 1. For an updated version for beta 2, please look here

In my last post, I demonstrated how to completely customise the appearance of a ListBox in Silverlight, including the appearance of the ScrollBars. The missing piece though is any kind of indication of which items are selected, or any visual feedback when the mouse hovers over a ListBox item.

To achieve this we need to add some Storyboards to the custom ListBoxItem we created in my first post. There are six states you can specify Storyboards for. The most important for our purposes are "Normal State", "Normal Selected State", "MouseOver State" and "MouseOver Selected State".

Obviously you can do whatever you like in these Storyboards. I have gone for the simplest option of changing the background. But if you wished to animate some properties on the ContentPresenter itself, then that also would be possible.

Here's the updated ListBoxItem style:

<Style x:Key="ListBoxItemStyle1" TargetType="ListBoxItem">
    <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="#BDBC97" />    
    <Setter Property="Template">
        <Setter.Value>
            <ControlTemplate TargetType="ListBoxItem">
                <Grid x:Name="RootElement">
                    <Grid.Resources>
                        <Storyboard x:Key="Normal State" />
                        <!-- <Storyboard x:Key="Unfocused Selected State"/> -->
                        <Storyboard x:Key="Normal Selected State">
                            <ColorAnimation Storyboard.TargetName="BackgroundBrush" Storyboard.TargetProperty="Color" Duration="0" To="#FF397F8F"/>
                        </Storyboard>
                        <Storyboard x:Key="MouseOver State">
                            <ColorAnimation Storyboard.TargetName="BackgroundBrush" Storyboard.TargetProperty="Color" Duration="0" To="#FF898A8A"/>
                        </Storyboard>
                        <!-- <Storyboard x:Key="MouseOver Unfocused Selected State"/> -->
                        <Storyboard x:Key="MouseOver Selected State">
                            <ColorAnimation Storyboard.TargetName="BackgroundBrush" Storyboard.TargetProperty="Color" Duration="0" To="#FF898A8A"/>
                        </Storyboard>
                    </Grid.Resources>                        
                
                    <Border CornerRadius="5" Margin="1">
                        <Border.Background>
                            <SolidColorBrush x:Name="BackgroundBrush" Color="#51615B" />
                        </Border.Background>
                        <ContentPresenter
                            Margin="5,1"
                            Content="{TemplateBinding Content}"
                            Foreground="{TemplateBinding Foreground}"
                         />                    
                    </Border>
                </Grid>
            </ControlTemplate>
        </Setter.Value>
    </Setter>
</Style>

Here's what it looks like (item 3 selected, item 5 mouse over):

ListBox style

OK, so my choice of colours is awful and there are lots of visual elements that could be improved (and also we await a fix in beta 2 to the vertical scrollbar bug), but hopefully I have demonstrated how it is possible to completely change every visual element of how your ListBox is rendered in Silverlight.

Here's the complete XAML for my test application including all the custom styles:

The mouseover / selected etc events as explained above don't seem to work on silverlight 2 Beta 2. I'm guessing now they are using the visual state manager, but how does it hook in to the ListBoxItem...
