    Hi,

    In all your objects, whatever it is, GridViewDataColumn for instance or anything else, you should have a Tag property which helps so much to let us do Dynamic codes.  It's a property we can put anything in it and it is a vital one to many RIA applications

    Thank you

    Hi Marc,

    Can you provide more info on how exactly you want to use this property - for example with grid columns?

    All the best,

    Sure.

    For my actual need with the GridViewDataColumn since this is only ONE example is that I'm adding the columns of the grid at runtime based on SQL columns and I have a table that defines many aspect of the columns including a language change in realtime with the Tag of any existing Silverlight object in the application.

    The way it works is that I put the english word and the french word separated by ; like this object.Tag = "Word;Mot" and if the user change language, every visual object in the application will have its language changed according to what the user wants

    No I'm not using a resource for that because I have other needs that can't be fullfill with this approach.

    Remember.  This is only an example of the usage of Tag.

    Hi Marc,

    You can use our Silverlight DataTable to achieve such dynamic scenarios.

    Sure I can.

    I mean, this was just an example.  Tag isn't used just for that. 
    Tag is a general purpose object that serves so well in many different needs.

    You see what I mean right ?
