I was trying to customize the RadGridView by using a control template. Basically, I wanted to always include an additional control together with the grid.
The first thing I noticed was, the ContentPresenter control doesn't do what it should, that is, the RadGridView does not get rendered. Then I tried to add another RadGridView to the control template, and have its properties bound to the container RadGridView through TemplateBindings or Bindings, but, for example, I cannot do this for the columns.
Has anyone succeeded in doing this? If so, what is the best approach? Could visual states be the answer?
