    Is it possible to have a data template selector to select the type of item container?

    I'd like to have an option to choose from a list of details and a wrap panel with tiles.

    Hi Paulo,

    Thank you for your question.

    The DataTemplateSelector can be used only for setting a different template for the different items, but not for the panel that contains them. If you want to have a wrap panel, you can add a WrapVirtualizationStrategyDefinition as explained in RadDataBoundListBox's online documentation. Then you can try to simulate the desired behavior. For example, in the DataTemplateSelector, you can select a template that has a fixed width, that would not allow two items to be on the same row and this would look like a list of details. On the other hand, when you need the wrap panel with tiles, you can let the items size themselves and allow them to be on the same row.

    I hope this information helps. Let me know if I can assist further.
