I notice that out-of-the-box the RadGridView auto-generates columns for navigation properties from an OData source, regardless of whether or not they were actually expanded by the query. Is there anything built into the controls to more flexibly handle navigation properties? I was thinking it might be nice to automatically generate hyperlinks in these cells that would issue the appropriate query back to the service when clicked.

It looks like I could roll my own scheme by intercepting AutoGeneratingColumn and setting up a cell template, but then how would I determine the link information from the feed?

Hi,

 I'm afraid that we do not have such built-in features in RadGridView. The DataContext for row/cell (and the component inside your custom CellTemplate) is the data item - if you cast it to your type you can access any property (including the navigation properties as well).

All the best,
