This article shows how easy it is to display images in ItemsControl element using simple DataBinding. Answer posted to these MSDN questions (1, 2

Let's take a look at this sample code for the implementation details:

 

<GridView x:Name="gridView" ItemsSource="{Binding Items}">
 <GridView.ItemTemplate>
 <DataTemplate>
 <StackPanel>
 <TextBlock Text="{Binding Txt}" />
 <Image Source="{Binding ImageUri}" Height="60" Width="60"/>
 </StackPanel>
 </DataTemplate>
 </GridView.ItemTemplate>
 </GridView>

 

class GridVwItem
 {
 public Uri ImageUri { get; set; }
 public string Txt { get; set; }
 }
 
 class GridVwModel
 {
 public List<GridVwItem> Items { get; set; }
 
 public GridVwModel()
 {
 //Dummy Data
 Items = new List<GridVwItem>();
 Items.Add(new GridVwItem() { ImageUri = new Uri("ms-appdata:///local/Logo.png"), Txt="1" });
 Items.Add(new GridVwItem() { ImageUri = new Uri("ms-appdata:///local/EnterButton.png"), Txt = "2" });
 Items.Add(new GridVwItem() { ImageUri = new Uri("ms-appdata:///local/SplashScreen.png"), Txt = "3" });
 }
 }

 

public sealed partial class MainPage : Page
 {
 public MainPage()
 {
 this.InitializeComponent();
 this.DataContext = new GridVwModel();
 
 }
}
