WPF: the Expander control

In Windows Presentation Foundation we can use a control called Expander, which is a sort of controls contanier and that can be expanded and closed just with a mouse click. Let's see a graphical sample.

In Visual Studio 2005, type the following XAML:

      <Expander Margin="10,10,10,10" Background="LightBlue">
          Expander control sample

        <ListBox Margin="20,10,0,0" Background="LightGreen">
          <ListBoxItem Content="First item"  />
          <ListBoxItem Content="Second item" />

The element Expander contains another element called Expander.Header, which contains the text (or another control deriving from FrameworkElement) to be shown. As a nested element, we can specify a control to show when the Expander gets opened. In this case we have drawn a ListBox with just two items. This is the result you obtain when launching the application:
