Hi,

I'm beginning to learn how to use the RadGrid control, but really don't know where to begin. I am developing a test page where the RadGrid should populate from the following object:

public class GalleryDTO {
private string mName;
private string mDescription;
private string mUrl;
private string mThumbnailUrl;

//.. Below are read/write properties for the above fields, and constructors.
}

Now, I have a method that returns a List<GalleryDTO>. How
can I pass this list to the RadGrid so that it can populate itself.

Each GalleryDTO object should be displayed in 1 cell where the
mThumbnailURL is a url to an image that is to be displayed in
that cell, and the mUrl is the url to be redirected when clicking
on that image.

Any guidance on where to start or to a sample project would be great.

Thanks!

Hello Robert,

You can provide this generic list directly as DataSource for the grid in NeedDataSource or you can use ObjectDataSource. Please check these examples:

Hi,

Thanks for the examples, I will take a look at them now. Just
a short follow up question though.

Does the RadGrid support the display of images from a Bitmap
or Image variable directly or does it need to be handled in
some other way?

Thanks!
