Title and artist in one label

I’m trying to build a smal (HEOS) media page. i want to do a ‘artis - title’ label. how do i do this in one lable? With multi binding? And what is the string format in that case?

You can use a MultiBinding along with StringFormat to show multiple values in a single Label control.

On the MultiBinding dialog, add Bindings for those 2 attributes & then reference them in the StringFormat by using curly brackets with the binding index. {0} will represent the Artist. {1} will represent the Title.

Thanks. so it’s like .format() in python 3.

Very cool Bill! Is it possible to scroll this label?

Yes. You can add scrolling support to anything with the ScrollViewer control.

Attached is a revised project with that control wrapped in a ScrollViewer.

No, if you are talking about automated scrolling that doesn’t require any user interaction. There’s a feature request for that though.

Auto scroll not working for me

Auto scroll is not supported. You’ll have to use touch gestures or the scrollbar.

OK, sorry when I said that I wanted to scroll I was thinking about auto scroll to show long names
