Hi,
I am having problem with gridview column header.
i have following code:

<telerikGridView:RadGridView.Columns>
<telerikGridView:GridViewDataColumn  Header="Server IP" DataMemberBinding="{Binding Machine}" IsReadOnly="True" />
</telerikGridView:RadGridView.Columns>




I would like the text "Server IP" to load from resx file in the project.
I tried traditional approach of  "{Binding Path=Resource.TEXT_VALUE1, Source={StaticResource LocalizedStrings}}"
but, then it doesnt work
May I know if anyone has encountered this problem ??
Any help in this regard is greatly appreciated.

Hello Ganesh,

You may try to do the following:

<telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding Name}">
        <telerik:GridViewDataColumn.Header>
            <TextBlock  telerik:LocalizationManager.ResourceKey="Name" />
        </telerik:GridViewDataColumn.Header>                   
</telerik:GridViewDataColumn>          

In this case you need to have a key "Name" in your resources file.
 

Kind regards,

I have found a simple way around to fix this problem !
I went to code behind (c# file) then in the constructor part of class, i initialized the resource manager and passed the path of resex file and name of executing assembly. then i accessed each columns of that grid and did domething like this
grid1.columns[0].Header= rm.GetString("KEY_NAME_1");
grid1.columns[1].Header= rm.GetString("KEY_NAME_1");
and so on, i did not change anything in xaml file , above code behind will override the xaml code
this way column headers can be read from resource file
Hope this helps to many people having this issue.
