DataTemplate, value converter and ObservableCollection

A couple of days ago, I was working on program that can process the results of students.  I wanted to create a listboxitem for every student that contains a textblock for the name and a textbox to insert or update the result.

After asking advise on different forums and a lot of trying and failing, I finally found a way to get this done.

I use a ObservableCollection for data binding to my listbox.  Use a datatemplate to put different controls in the itemtemplate, and a value converter to indicate if the student is passed or not.

My conclusion: an ObservableCollection is very powerful!

You can download the tutorial and the entire source code:
