Before I write new code, I wonder if it already exists? My end-user wants the ability to select the columns that are to be visible in the grid from a popup list of columns with check boxes next to each column name. They select the columns they want to see.

Does Telerik Silverlight offer something like this OOB?
Thank you

Hello,

 There is no such built-in functionality however we have an example which may help you in your case.

We were easily able to implement something similar to this with the following:

<ListBox ItemsSource="{Binding ElementName=PART_grid, Path=Columns}" MinHeight="150" MaxHeight="150">
     <ListBox.ItemTemplate>
          <DataTemplate>
              <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
                   <CheckBox IsChecked="{Binding Path=IsVisible, Mode=TwoWay}" />
                   <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=Header.Text}"  />
               </StackPanel>
          </DataTemplate>
     </ListBox.ItemTemplate>
</ListBox>


It's worth noting that the all of our headers are TextBlocks.

Hi Josh, Vlad

Vlad, the example you showed was good but the code is abstracted away. Can you provide the code?

Thanks Josh - it's working. My listbox was not showing the column names - I had to remove '.Text' from the pasted line.

<TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=Header.Text}"

Hello,

 I'm not sure I understand. Have you checked the code of the demo? You can click the "code" button in the top right part of the demo.

Hi Vlad,
You were right - all the code was there and I got it working on my end. This is a very nice solution. THANK YOU.

For anyone intertested, I couldn't find a way to copy the code from the online example, BUT the code is available on your hard drive in the demos\examples folders.
