Region defined as ItemsControl vs View Containing an ItemsControl

Oct 24, 2008 at 3:59 PM
I've seen differing implementations in which an ItemsControl (or ListView, TabControl, whatever) will be defined as a Region and the scenerio where a View contains the ItemsControl.  For a scenerio in which a regions purpose is to display things to be selected/listed (think the News section in StockTrader) why would one add many instances of a View into the Region versus having a single View that contains a List to the region?
