I was trying to follow along the demo RadControls for WPF -> Data -> GridView -> Appearance -> Custom Row Layout.
I am using a dataset as data source.  It works fine by default but I can't bind to columns after I apply RowStyle property.  I set up a 3 by 2 grid as custom layout and I can see the TextBlocks that are labels.  The TextBlocks that I bind columns do not display data.  Any ideas?

Here is my template
<ControlTemplate x:Key="MyCustomRowTemplate" TargetType="telerik:GridViewRow">
                <Border x:Name="rowsContainer" Background="#FF525252" Padding="8,8,8,0">
                    <Border Background="{StaticResource Office_BlackRowBackground}" x:Name="selectedRow"
                        BorderThickness="1" BorderBrush="#FF000000">
  
                        <Grid>
                            <Grid.RowDefinitions>
                                <RowDefinition />
                                <RowDefinition />
                                <RowDefinition />                                
                            </Grid.RowDefinitions>
                            <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
                                <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto"/>
                                <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto" />
                            </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
  
                            <TextBlock Text="Code:"
                                       Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="0"
                                       VerticalAlignment="Top" HorizontalAlignment="Left" 
                                       Foreground="White" FontWeight="Bold" Margin="0,15,15,0" />
  
                            <TextBlock Text="{Binding CD}"
                                       Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="0"
                                       VerticalAlignment="Top" HorizontalAlignment="Left"
                                       Foreground="White"  Margin="0,15,15,0" />
                              
                            <TextBlock Text="Description:"
                                       Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="1"
                                       VerticalAlignment="Top" HorizontalAlignment="Left" 
                                       Foreground="White" FontWeight="Bold" Margin="0,15,15,0" />
  
                            <TextBlock Text="{Binding DESC}"  
                                       Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="1"
                                       VerticalAlignment="Top" HorizontalAlignment="Left"
                                       Foreground="White"  Margin="0,15,15,0" />
                              
                            <TextBlock Text="Enabled:"
                                       Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="2"
                                       VerticalAlignment="Top" HorizontalAlignment="Left" 
                                       Foreground="White" FontWeight="Bold" Margin="0,15,15,0" />
  
  
                            <TextBlock Text="{Binding ENABLED}"
                                       Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="2"
                                       VerticalAlignment="Top" HorizontalAlignment="Left"
                                       Foreground="White"  Margin="0,15,15,0" />
  
                        </Grid>
                    </Border>
                </Border>
            </ControlTemplate>

and gridview
<telerik:RadGridView Grid.Row="2" Name="radGridView2" ItemsSource="{Binding}" 
                             Margin="5,5,5,5" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Visibility="Hidden" 
                             IsFilteringAllowed="False" RowSytle="{StaticResource rowStyle}" 
                             ShowGroupPanel="False" ShowColumnHeaders="False"  
                             RowIndicatorVisibility="Collapsed" CanUserReorderColumns="False"  />

Thanks

Hello Alp,

By the looks of it the problem resides in a faulty binding of the RadGridView, or an incorrect application of the RowStyle. In any case the custom row template is fine. 

I am sending you a sample I used for testing the template and it works like a charm. Maybe you can use it as a reference to pinpoint the problem.

Let me know how this goes.

Sincerely yours,

Thanks.  Your sample does work like a charm.  I copied your Window.Resources definition and I still can't get the data on mine when I apply the RowStyle property. 

I have another GridView which I allow row selection.  When a row is selected on the first GridView, the second one displays the details (more columns) of that single record.  If I don't set the RowStyle for the second GridView, I see the correct data.  But if I set the RowStyle, I do see the 3x2 layout with the labels but not the data from the dataset.  I set the radGridView2.DataContext to a function which returns a dataset on the radGridView1_RowActivated event.
Do I have to define the datasource for the template or the application?  Would the template be able to look into the second GridView and know what it is?

Also I want to allow editing and inserting of data on the second GridView.  Would I need to use GridViewCell instead of TextBlock?

Hi Alp,

I modified the previous sample to account for the selection specifics you mentioned. The style still applies and everything looks as expected. Is this your case or am I missing something?

As for the editing - right now it is not possible to perform it when implementing custom rows.
