The WPF Navigation Pane provides a navigation UI similar to Microsoft Outlook with support to expand and collapse a view using its header. It supports different orientations, multiple expansion modes to work with one or more items in the view, built-in Office-like styles, and more.

Data binding

Provides powerful data binding to display a header and content in a view. It allows developers to design their application in the MVVM pattern, binding a selected item and notifying on changes to expansion modes and orientations.

Expand views

The WPF Navigation Pane expands and collapses the content of group items on selecting their corresponding headers. The pane automatically collapses the previous view on selecting a new one. The expanded view displays content in stack mode or below the corresponding header. It also supports expanding multiples views at a time.
