Hi,

I'm trying to create a custom column that inherits from GridViewBoundColumnBase but I want to style it entirely in XAML.

I need to know how to do the binding between the column's DataMemberBinding and the editor.

Here is a simple example (the GridViewColumnTextBox is empty and inherit's GridViewBoundColumnBase):

        <Style TargetType="{x:Type Controles:GridViewColumnTextBox}">
            <Setter Property="CellEditTemplate">
                <Setter.Value>
                    <DataTemplate>
                        <TextBox Text="BINDING?"/>
                    </DataTemplate>
                </Setter.Value>
            </Setter>
        </Style>

So, is there any way to do the binding to DataMemberBinding ?

Hello Jean-Fran├žois,

As there is no direct way to do this in xaml I may suggest the following workaround :

1. Define your template in XAML , and mark the element to be used as editor with a known name e.g. "PART_MyTextBox" ,

2. In the overriden code of the column you may load the template , find the element by its name and set the binding via code ( element.SetBinding(TextBox.TextProperty, this.DataMemberBinding).

Let me know if you need additional help.

All the best,
