    I am trying to bind a List as the database for my RadGrid and I am getting the following error "Cannot find any bindable properties in an item from the datasource" although I have made sure and tested that the data source is returning valid data.

    <telerik:RadGrid ID="grdTest" runat="server"  AutoGenerateColumns="true" ShowStatusBar="True" OnNeedDataSource="grdTest_NeedDataSource" >
        <MasterTableView AutoGenerateColumns="true" >


    protected void grdTest_NeedDataSource(object sender, GridNeedDataSourceEventArgs e)
        int ParentRulCode = 2611767;
        List<Enrolment> MyEnrol = EnrolmentRepository.GetChildEnrolmentsFromRulCode(ParentRulCode);
        grdTest.DataSource = MyEnrol;



    Here is My Enrolment Class

    public class Enrolment
        public Course MC;
        public Person MP;
        public int RulCode;
        public DateTime StartDate;
        public DateTime EndDate;
        public string ProgressStatus;

    Hi Mohammed,

    I've already replied to this query in your formal support ticket, but I am also pasting the solution here so other developers could see it as well:

    You can fix the issue by replacing the fields with properties:
    public class Enrolment
        public string MC { get; set; }
        public string MP { get; set; }
        public int RulCode { get; set; }
        public DateTime StartDate { get; set; }
        public DateTime EndDate { get; set; }
        public string ProgressStatus { get; set; }

    I've also created a sample RadGrid web site to demonstrate that the suggested solution works as expected.
    Progress Telerik
    Try our brand new, jQuery-free Angular 2 components built from ground-up which deliver the business app essential building blocks - a grid component, data visualization (charts) and form elements.
