    Hi I am trying to create teleric propertygrid-based user control that contains a multiline textbox, but I can't configure data-bindig.
    exactly i can't call set for property
    public UserControl1()
           this.DataContext = this;
           Rad.Item = new object() { };
       public string longStringVal_
               return (string)GetValue(longStringVal);
               SetValue(longStringVal, value);
    public static readonly DependencyProperty longStringVal =

        <telerik:RadPropertyGrid x:Name="Rad" >
                <telerik:PropertyDefinition DisplayName="LongStr" OrderIndex="-1" >
                            <TextBox MinLines="3" MaxLines="3" 
                                     Text="{Binding Path = longStringVal_, Mode=TwoWay}"                                    
    Any help is much appreciated!

    The editors' DataContext is their parent PropertyGrid's Item. As the Object type does not have a longStringVal_ property your code results in a BindingExpressionPath error. The longStringVal_ is a member of the UserControl class, so that you should be using RelativeSource AncestorType binding to make it work.
