Hello,
I'm using the RadPanelBar in an application who use the MVVM pattern with the following binding on the ItemSource property:

<telerikNavigation:RadPanelBar Grid.Row="1" Margin="10" telerik:StyleManager.Theme="Windows7" x:Name="pbPanels"
            ItemsSource="{Binding NavigationsPanelItems}"
            SelectedItem="{Binding SelectedPanelItem, Mode=TwoWay, UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged}"
DisplayMemberPath="DisplayName">
        </telerikNavigation:RadPanelBar>
<telerikNavigation:RadPanelBar Grid.Row="1" Margin="10" telerik:StyleManager.Theme="Windows7" x:Name="pbPanels"
            ItemsSource="{Binding NavigationsPanelItems}"
            SelectedItem="{Binding SelectedPanelItem, Mode=TwoWay, UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged}"
            DisplayMemberPath="DisplayName">
</telerikNavigation:RadPanelBar>

with a hierarchicaldatatemplate:

<HierarchicalDataTemplate DataType="{x:Type vm:TPNavigationGeneralInfoViewModel}"
                    ItemTemplate="{StaticResource pbiGeneralInfoTemplate}" ItemsSource="{Binding PanelBarContent}">
                <TextBlock Text="{Binding DisplayName}" Height="20" Margin="5 2 5 2" FontWeight="Bold" FontSize="16"/
</HierarchicalDataTemplate>

where the ItemTemplate is a custom UserControl.

I need to bind the property IsEnabled of each one of the PanelBarItems inside the collection, but I'm not able to do that. Can you please give me some hints?

Thanks,
Flavio

Hello fcometto,

 You can bind the generated RadPanelBarItems to the object behind that using the so called ContainerBindings (Read the full story.) This is fixed for the limitation in Silverlight that doesn't allow you to have Bindings in style.
Hope will help you.

All the best,
