Can you bind a column to a specific index in a List, without using a hierarchical grid?

For example, with the following data structure:

public class Survey {
    public string Name { get; set; }
    public List<string> Answers { get; set; }
    public Survey() {
        Answers = new List<string>();
    }
}
 

The grid is bound to a data source of List<Survey>.  

I can obviously create a column with a FieldName of: "Name".

Can I create a column with a FieldName of: "Answers[0]"?

 

I looked at the documentation article Binding to Sub Objects, and I didn't notice any restrictions on this.

 

Thanks,

Eric.

Hello Eric,

Thank you for writing.

You cannot bind a column to a certain record, but perhaps you can have a combo box column, and set the data source for each cell when it gets into edit mode. This approach here: http://www.telerik.com/support/kb/winforms/gridview/details/cascading-comboboxes-in-radgridview

I hope that this will work for you.
