Hello,

I have table with a XML-Column (XElement). I would like to format the cell according to the specified XML-Data, so I was looking for a GridViewDataColumn.CellTemplateSelector but I did not found one.

Do you have an easy way to get this behaviour?

I have several DataTemplates for the XMLs which I want to use.

I was trying to style the GridViewCell and set the ContentControl.ContentTemplateSelector but this was not recognized by the RadGridView.

Do I have any other oportunities ?

Hello Benedict,

Currently we don't have template selectors and the easiest way to achieve your goal is demonstrated on this blog post:
http://blogs.telerik.com/pavelpavlov/posts/09-10-03/adding_additional_power_to_radgridview_for_silverlight_with_attached_behaviors.aspx

We will do our best to add template selectors for Q2 2010 (beta middle of June)

So I bind the CellTemplate to a IValueConverter which resolves a DataTemplate ?

Hello Benedict,

Indeed the idea is to use IValueConverter to apply desired customization.

So far I used IValueConverter for Bindings to resolve a value for the target dependency property, like colors from an enum etc.

Now I habe a complex XML-Structure and I want a visualize it with several controls (like Gridlayout etc.)
I think, IValueConverter will lead to much overhead here.
