Using NavigationBar to mimic Outlook To-Do bar

Navigation for WPF Forum

I need to create a similar control as the Microsoft Outlook To-Do bar. I can achieve this by
1. using the NavigationBar
2. setting ArePanesVisible = false;
3. and using just one NavigationPane

However, like the To-Do bar, I would also like to add icons text and splitter lines to the bar when it is collapsed. From what I can tell, the NavigationBar only supports text via the Text property. Is it possible to add icons etc aswell and mimic the outlook To-Do bar?

Thanks heaps.

Sorry that isn't yet directly supported. It is on our TODO list though. However you could probably implement it yourself by cloning our default templates and modifying them to display a DataTemplate there maybe based off a new property you'd add to some NavigationPane-inherited classes. You can download the default styles/templates from your account if you own WPF Studio 2009.1.
