Tutorial :WPF Listbox scroll down



Question:

Lets say i have a listbox with many items so that a vertical scroll comes up, but i have hidden the scroll bar with

ScrollViewer.VerticalScrollBarVisibility="Hidden"  

Is there any way i can add a button that would scroll down for me? iv tryed to add

Command="ScrollBar.LineDownCommand"   

to a button but that didnt have any effect.


Solution:1

You need to tell WPF where to start looking for the command handler. Without telling it, it will start looking from the Button and not find anything that handles the LineDownCommand. Unfortunately, setting it to the ListBox will not suffice because the ScrollViewer is inside the ListBox as part of its template, so WPF still won't find it.

Setting it to one of the ListBoxItems is naff, but works:

<Window x:Class="WpfApplication1.Window1"      xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"      xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"      Title="Window1" Height="300" Width="300">      <Grid>          <Grid.RowDefinitions>              <RowDefinition Height="*"/>              <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>          </Grid.RowDefinitions>            <ListBox x:Name="_listBox" ScrollViewer.VerticalScrollBarVisibility="Hidden">              <ListBoxItem x:Name="_listBoxItem">One</ListBoxItem>              <ListBoxItem>Two</ListBoxItem>              <ListBoxItem>Three</ListBoxItem>              <ListBoxItem>One</ListBoxItem>              <ListBoxItem>Two</ListBoxItem>              <ListBoxItem>Three</ListBoxItem>              <ListBoxItem>One</ListBoxItem>              <ListBoxItem>Two</ListBoxItem>              <ListBoxItem>Three</ListBoxItem>              <ListBoxItem>One</ListBoxItem>              <ListBoxItem>Two</ListBoxItem>              <ListBoxItem>Three</ListBoxItem>          </ListBox>          <Button Grid.Row="1" Command="ScrollBar.LineDownCommand" CommandTarget="{Binding ElementName=_listBoxItem}">Scroll Down</Button>      </Grid>  </Window>  

A better way to do this would be to either re-template the ListBox and stick the Button inside the template, or to wire up the CommandTarget in the code-behind.


Solution:2

I had an app where I wanted to manually control the scrolling of a ScrollViewer. Basically, I got a reference to the ScrollViewer and then used the ScrollToHorizontalOffset() method to control the scrolling. Below are the blog posts where I explain the process I used:
