I want to bind a column depending on a condition i did
 columns.Bound(p =>
                                {
                                    if (Helper.Language.StartsWith("en"))
                                    {
                                       p.Patient.FirstNameEnglish;
                                    }
                                    else
                                    {
                                     p.Patient.FirstName;
                                    }
                                })

but it gives this error "Cannot convert lambda expression to type 'string' because it is not a delegate type"

Hello Nebras ,

 Of course this is not supported as the grid needs a simple member expression (field or property access). This should work:

if (Helper.Language.StartsWith("en"))
{
   columns.Bound(p => p.Patient.FirstNameEnglish);
}
else
{
   columns.Bound(p => p.Patient.FirstName);
}

Greetings,

Hi there

Is there a solution for a scenario like:

if (Helper.Language.StartsWith("en"))
{
   columns.Bound(p => p.Patient.FirstNameEnglish).Visible(p.IsVisible);
}
else
{
   columns.Bound(p => p.Patient.FirstName).Visible(p.IsVisible);
}

a very poor example, that cannot work of course, but how could the Visible(bool) method be controlled by the actual data object?

Thanks,
 Linard
