I was just signing up to ask this exact same question! I have been using the control for a few weeks now, and again I'm form an ASP.NET background and have relatively little experience with Silverlight.
I data bind my cover flow to a WCF service. This works great and I can browser thourgh my covers.
What I would really like to be able to do though, is once I have data bound to my service, check a property on the page (actually taken from QueryString - but this bit is already coded) and then select the item within the coverflow.
If I add a button to the page and then set the CoverFlow's SelectedIndex property the control will update itself. However, if I try to call this from the WCF callback method this doesn't work.
Any ideas on how this can be done?
My method structure is as follows:
MainPage() -> Call BindData()
BindData() -> Create WCF proxy class and call Async() method
AsyncCallback() -> Gets fired when WCF service returns. I then bind the results to the coverflow control's ItemSource property. Next I try to call CoverFlow.SelectedIndex = 2 (for example) but the coverflow stays selected at 0
If you need any clarification please feel free to let me know!
