Hi,

More an observation than anything else, but I was wondering why you can't access GridViewDataColumns by their name? I can call them x:name="MyGridViewDataColumn", but when I try to access this in the 'code behind' it is always null. it's easy enough to access via GridView.Columns[index], but it seems strange having the ability to give the columns names, but not to be able to use them.

James.

Hello James,

 Grid columns are plain DependencyObjects - you can reference only UI elements this way.

Kind regards,

I have the same problem when changing my control from WPF to Silverlight. My question is why does it work in WPF and not in Silverlight?
