[Phone] Bind to ToString Value


By default, when not using CM, if I bind a ListBox for example to a List<Item> the text displayed for ListBoxItem is the value of ToString of Item object.

But, when using CM, the framework tried to find a view for Item (which is fine) and if it didn't find one it displays "Cannot find view for Blah.Namespace.Item".

This behaviour should change to have ListBoxItem display the value of ToString.

The same applicable to any other control that have the same behaviour as ListBox.

Refer to: for more details about the issue.

I probably won't be able to change this behavior, but I was already planning to make it easy to modify the behavior of the framework for situations where views cannot be located. This would make it easy for you to plug in and return the behavior to that of ToString.
