I am building a datable from Active Directory data and using this as datasource for my grid but I get the error:

"Cannot find any bindable properties in an item from the datasource "

The error is because I am using: dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn(property, typeof(Object)));

I don't know if this is a bug or not but I can use that same datable as datasource for winforms DataGridView just fine.

Hi Al,

The behavior that you are observing is due to the fact that RadGrid could understand and handle only the types listed in the following help article:
Having an Object type is not supported scenario and RadGrid will not be able to handle such column, so please specify the type of the column to one of the accepted ones or switch to a custom collection as a data source:
Hope this helps.
