Morning all,

I want to create a custom control in WPF that has two list boxes and allow a user to bind directly to the ItemsSources of these list boxes in xaml.

Can anyone make any suggestions as to a possible approaches?

My intende usage would be as follows

<ControlLib:DualListControl LeftItemsSource={Binding SomeSource} RightItemsSource={Binding SomeOtherSource}/>

Be gentle, I am new to WPF custom controls

Well, the simplest way to do this would be to name the controls inside your control (using x:Name="...") and just expose the ItemsSources as properties, e.g.:
public IEnumerable MasterListView
  get { return MasterList.ItemsSource; }
  set { MasterList.ItemsSource = value; }
