Image in silverlight datagrid

I'm a Siliverlight newbie.

I want to create a datagrid with a different photo for each row.  These photos will reside in the c:\Photos\xxx\ directory on the web server, where xxx represents a unique ID for each data row.

This xaml works, where I've just used a test file for the photo:

                    <data:DataGridTemplateColumn.CellTemplate>
                        <DataTemplate>
                            <Image x:Name ="TestImage" Source ="100_0117.JPG" Height ="50"/>
                        </DataTemplate>
                    </data:DataGridTemplateColumn.CellTemplate>

But what is the syntax to make that image path vary for each row?

Thanks.

I solved this myself. It required a converter. Add a converter as a static resource and then use that converter to bring in the data. In this case, I named my photo files ItemID.jpg, so that I could bring in the appropriate by just knowing the ItemID of the current row.  Here's the applicable XAML and C# code


<UserControl.Resources>
<HMSRemnants_svcSayHello:RemnantsTest x:Key="RemnantsTestDS" d:IsDataSource="True"/>
<local:SlabID2ImageConverter x:Key="SlabID2ImageConverter"/>
</UserControl.Resources>

<StackPanel x:Name="OurStack" Orientation="Vertical">
<TextBox x:Name="InputText"/>
<TextBlock x:Name="OutputText"/>
<Button x:Name="CallServiceButton" Content="Call WCF" Click="CallServiceButton_Click"/>
<data:DataGrid x:Name="theDataGrid" AlternatingRowBackground="Beige" Grid.Row="2" Grid.Column="1" Height=" 600" Width="800" CanUserResizeColumns="True" AutoGenerateColumns="False">
<data:DataGrid.Columns>
<data:DataGridTextColumn Header="InventTypeID" Width="100" Binding="{Binding InventTypeID}" />
<data:DataGridTemplateColumn Header="ImageColumn" DisplayIndex="1" > 
<data:DataGridTemplateColumn.CellTemplate>
<DataTemplate>
<Image Source="{Binding ItemID, Converter={StaticResource SlabID2ImageConverter}}" Height="50" />
</DataTemplate>
</data:DataGridTemplateColumn.CellTemplate>
</data:DataGridTemplateColumn>
</data:DataGrid.Columns>
</data:DataGrid>
</StackPanel>
<?xml:namespace prefix = local />


public class SlabID2ImageConverter : IValueConverter
{
public object Convert(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture)
{
Uri uri = new Uri("/Photos/" + value.ToString()+ ".jpg", UriKind.Relative);
return new BitmapImage(uri);
}
public object ConvertBack(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture)
{
throw new NotImplementedException();
}
