Hello
I'm binding a IList<BusinessObject> to the GridViewDataColumn through a converter.
Code snippet:

                          <telerik:GridViewDataColumn
                                                        Header="Classes"
                                                        Width="15*"
                                                        UniqueName="AuthorisationClasses"
                                                        DataMemberBinding="{Binding AuthorisationClasses, Converter={StaticResource AuthorisationClassesListConverter}}"

The view gets updated dynamically if I make the AuthorisationClasses an ObservableCollection. I was wondering if I could make the view update dynamically without making it an ObservableCollection. The reason being, AuthorisationClasses is a business entity and all the business entites in our solution are of type List<T>.
Thanks in advance

Regards
Binu

Hi Binu,

If you implement INotifyCollectionChanged for this lists you can use them instead ObservableCollection.

Hi Vlad
Thanks for that..In the code snippet that was posted before, would it be possible to use a Datatemplate for displaying the ObservableCollection instead of a Converter?

So could I use something like:
   <DataTemplate x:Key="CheckBoxParentTemplate" DataType="{x:Type System:ObservableCollection<AuthorisationClasses>}">
for the DataColumn of the GridView?..

Thanks again

Regards
Binu
