    Hello,

    Has anyone seen a walk through video/tutorial on how to implement the GridView in Expression Blend?

    I have googled it, but I haven't had much luck finding an answer.

    Thanks for reading,

    Sebastian

    On the page "Gridview for Silverlight", I found 3 articles that look like exactly what I need, but the pages do not work:

    Hi Sebastian,

    Those appear to be outdated links.

    Here is the Getting Started link. Underneath it will have all the other ones you may want as well.

    Good Luck,
    Lancelot

    Thanks Lancelot! Those will definitely come in handy in the future when I am styling the RadGridView.

    I am still having a hard time trying to figure out how to set up a RadGridView with headers and cells that contain sample data in Expression Blend.

    You can easily set up a quick sampleDataSource and bind it to the chart. It takes about 30 seconds ;) Here's how:

    1) Look to the right in the properties pane, there will be a data tab at the top. Select that and notice a little stack that looks like a hard drive. If you drop that down you can create a new sample data source.

    2)To bind the data source to the RadGridView, just drag and drop it onto the control.

    You can add more data properties and even the type of properties, but I recommend you search for a demo video of a Expression Blend SampleDataSource tutorial. It'll be the best 15 minutes you've spent in a long time =D

    Good Luck
