I want to make a column in my RadGridView clickable, such that clicking on a cell in a particular column opens another view with details for that row. I tried adding a button to the column, but I can't get the button to show the text from the actual column. I've got my RadGridView  bound to a System.Data.DataTable, and am defining the column as follows:

<telerik:GridViewDataColumn Header="Action" DataMemberBinding="{Binding commandName}" UniqueName="actionButton">
    <telerik:GridViewDataColumn.CellTemplate>
        <DataTemplate>
            <telerik:RadButton Content="{Binding commandName}" Click="ActionClicked" />
        </DataTemplate>
    </telerik:GridViewDataColumn.CellTemplate>
</telerik:GridViewDataColumn>

...but the button shows up as a skinny horizontal line with no text. It shows up as expected if I hard code the button content.

Hello,

 Is the column bound the right way if you do not have a CellTemplate defined for it?

Hello,

 The content for the button in the CellTemplate is bound fine with the "2011.2.920.35" as well. What is the result if you set the DataTable.DefaultView for an ItemsSource?

Kind regards,
