Hi,

How can I access a Silverlight GridView control in a static class that I am using as a helper class.  I do not want to pass it as a method parameter from the Main.xaml.cs page (since this method is an event handler, I want to keep with the same signature). 

I am unable to get the GridView's items using MyRadGridView.Items (Code below)

Thanks in advance for you help.

Cheers,
Nadeem.


public static  void Hello(object sender, EventArgs e) 
        { 
            //I wasnt to get something like this 
             
            try 
            { 
                        foreach (var dataItem in MyRadGridView.Items) 
                        { 
                            var firstRow = MyRadGridView.ItemContainerGenerator.ContainerFromItem(dataItem) as GridViewRow; 
                         
                            // some code 
                          } 
              }

Hello Syed Nadeem,

You can pass the instance of RadGridView in the static constructor of your static  class and store it in a field for further reference - e.g. use it later in the event handler.

Hi Pavel,

But the values in the GridView keep changing everysecond, say for example I have a dispatcher timer object showing a timer in the grid and I would need the current data in the GridView (dyanmic). 

So, I doubt if it would be right to go with the Static Constructor.

Correct me if I am wrong or alternatives are always appreciated.

Cheers,
Nadeem.

Hello Syed Nadeem,

Having the refference to the  RadGridView  is enough. You can always check the RadGridView.Items property ( within your event handler) and I asure you it will contain the fresh data anytime the event handler is called.
