Because I wanted to use multiple instances of the same control I decided to move the below implementation (which works) from xaml to codebehind.
<telerik:GridViewDataColumn
Header="Duration"
DataMemberBinding="{Binding Converter={StaticResource DurationConverter}}"
Width="85"/>

public class DurationConverter: IValueConverter
{
public object Convert(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture)
{
return ((myEntity)value).DurationValue + " " + ((myEntity)value).durationType;
}
public object ConvertBack(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture)
{
throw new NotImplementedException();
}
}

This converter combines two fields to give me something like "3 Weeks" or "5 days"
Now, in my codebehind, I have the following which works for "normal" GridViewDataColumns but not for columns that bind with a static converter.
private void rgvEmpSubControl_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
GridViewDataControl dataControl = (GridViewDataControl)sender;
dataControl.Columns.Clear();
bnd = new Binding();
bnd.Mode = BindingMode.TwoWay;
bnd.Path = new PropertyPath("SelectedItem");
bnd.Source = _viewModel.EmpTrainings;
dataControl.Columns.Add(DataColummParameters("Duration", "abc", 85));
dataControl.SetBinding(GridViewDataControl.SelectedItemProperty, bnd);
}
private GridViewDataColumn DataColummParameters(string _Header, string _Binding, int intWidth)
{
GridViewDataColumn GVDC = new GridViewDataColumn();
GVDC.DataMemberBinding = new Binding(_Binding);
GVDC.Header = _Header;
GVDC.Width = intWidth;
return GVDC;
}
My questions is
how can I structure "abc" to produce the codebehind equivalent of [DataMemberBinding="{Binding Converter={StaticResource DurationConverter}}" ] ?

Hello jay,

You may set the converter in the code-behind as follows:

GridViewDataColumn column = new GridViewDataColumn();
column.DataMemberBinding = new Binding("Gender"){Converter = new GenderConverter()};           
this.playersGrid.Columns.Add(column);
 

Kind regards,
