Why does ItemTemplate not do anything?
This is a question that I have asked myself this week, in between banging my head against the wall.
What I wanted to do was apply a template to a row (in a GridView), in addition to the cell templates specified in the Columns attribute in the GridView.
Unfortunately, nothing happens 🙁
If you want to do this, you have to use a style instead.
A very good example of this can be found on Bea Costa’s blog
