    I want to show some images in the listbox with VirtualizingWrapPanel and some will not. It depends on the property(IsDefault) that i have defined.
    here is the code:

    <Style TargetType="{x:Type
    <DataTrigger Binding="{Binding IsDefault}"
    <Setter Property="Visibility"
    <P>                       </P>

    but even through the value of the "IsDefault" is set to "true",the listboxitem still display in the listbox ,and the item is blank.
    How do I do before they can get the effect I want?
    Thanks and Regards,

    I know this is an old post, but this might help someone. If "IsDefault" isn't a dependency property, make it one with a callback. Similar to:

    public bool ShowHidden
        get { return (bool)GetValue(ShowHiddenProperty); }
        set { SetValue(ShowHiddenProperty, value); }
    public static readonly DependencyProperty ShowHiddenProperty =
        DependencyProperty.Register("ShowHidden", typeof(bool), typeof(TileLoader), new PropertyMetadata(false, ShowHidden_Callback));
    private static void ShowHidden_Callback(DependencyObject d, DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs e)
        TileLoader _this = d as TileLoader;
        if (!_this.dpConstructorDone) return; // prevent constructor doing a refresh (and getting an error)

                                               // if you set the property value in the constructor on load

        bool value = (bool)e.NewValue;
        // do something with value here if you want

    Then create a collection view with a filter for your ListBox

    View.CollectionView = CollectionViewSource.GetDefaultView(View.Images);
    View.CollectionView.Filter = oImage =>
        var image = (ImageDTO)oImage;
        if (image.IsHidden && !ShowHidden) return false;
        if (string.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(Search))
            return true;
        return image.Name.ToLower().Contains(Search.ToLower());

    I also have a Search textbox, so my filter includes that. So when you refresh your collection view, Then you won't be displaying your hidden items (and there won't be blank boxes either.)
