I am getting an error trying to change my column collection after it has been previously loaded.
I am using as much of an MVVM approach as I can, to work around some of the gridview properties that aren't DependencyProperties i had to get a little creative. Everything was working fine, but it seems as if something in the last release(2009.3.1208.35) is causing an error.

I have a property in my ViewModel that is a GridViewColumnCollection. A multibinding converter is used to get the Columns property of the Grid and set it into the ViewModel( which is the Datacontext for the Grid)

My Grid is declared as such:

<telerik:RadGridView Name="gridviewRecordList" Margin="0,2,2,2" ScrollMode="RealTime" AutoGenerateColumns="False" IsReadOnly="True"  > 
                    <telerik:RadGridView.ItemsSource> 
                        <Binding Path="GetAllRecords" Mode="OneWay"/>  
                    </telerik:RadGridView.ItemsSource> 
                    <telerik:RadGridView.SelectedItem> 
                        <Binding Path="CurrentRecord"  Mode="Default"/>  
                    </telerik:RadGridView.SelectedItem> 
                    <telerik:RadGridView.ShowGroupPanel> 
                        <Binding Path="CurrentListToolView.IsGroupingAllowed" Mode="TwoWay" UpdateSourceTrigger="PropertyChanged"  /> 
                    </telerik:RadGridView.ShowGroupPanel> 
                    <telerik:RadGridView.ShowColumnFooters> 
                        <Binding Path="CurrentListToolView.ShowColumnFooter" Mode="TwoWay" UpdateSourceTrigger="PropertyChanged" /> 
                    </telerik:RadGridView.ShowColumnFooters> 
                </telerik:RadGridView> 

Here's the Xaml for the column binding converter:

<Label.Content> 
                <MultiBinding> 
                    <MultiBinding.Converter> 
                        <local:ColumnConverter /> 
                    </MultiBinding.Converter> 
                    <Binding ElementName="gridviewRecordList" Path="DataContext" UpdateSourceTrigger="PropertyChanged"/>  
                    <Binding ElementName="gridviewRecordList" Path="Columns" UpdateSourceTrigger="PropertyChanged"/>  
                </MultiBinding> 
            </Label.Content> 
Here's ColumnConverter:
 If o IsNot Nothing And o.GetType.BaseType Is GetType(ASISplitWindowVM) And values.Count = 2 Then 
 
                    If values(1).GetType.BaseType Is GetType(GridViewColumnCollection) Then 
 
                        Dim columnColl As GridViewColumnCollection = CType(values(1), GridViewColumnCollection)  
                        Dim viewModel As ASISplitWindowVM = CType(o, ASISplitWindowVM)  
                        viewModel.ColumnList = columnColl  
                        viewModel.LoadListToolColumns()  
 
                    End If 
 
                End If 

The LoadListToolColumns Method reads through saved column data and creates GridViewDataColumns to add to the ColumnList Object(which since the ColumnList and the GridView.Columns are the same object it will update the UI when the ColumnList is changed).

This was all working fine, and still does work fine the first time it runs, but if I call LoadListToolColumns to try to load a different set of columns( after doing a ColumnList.Clear() ). Then I get an error, it works without error using version 2009.3.1103.35. 

This error is thrown after all my code has executed successfully:

Hi Nick Anderson,

I have prepared a small dummy project in order to reproduce the exception you are getting. I have simulated your architecture with two buttons. Each one of them clear the columns and then adds some columns to the collection.

Unfortunately, I was unable to get the exception that you have described. Can you please take my sample project and modify it so it reproduces the behavior that you are experiencing. Alternatively, you can create a new dummy project that reproduces the exception and attach it, if that would be easier for you. Our goal is to be able to get the exception on our end so that we can debug it and track down what is causing it.

Thanks in advance. We are looking forward to hearing from you.

Regards,
Ross

I was able to resolve my issue by not calling Clear() on my GridViewColumnCollection, but instead looping through the collection and removing each column. The exception wasn't being thrown when Clear() was called, it was being thrown after all my user code seemed to have executed, maybe when it was trying to redraw?

Hi,

Can you send us an example (via support ticket) where we can reproduce the original problem?

Sincerely yours,
