I have a silverlight grid view bound to a datasource.  The headers for each column are displaying the names of the fields.  I want to change the headers to more firendly names.  It would be nice if it split the header names the way the default grid does (takes into account the mixed casing of the column name and adds spaces).  When I click on the columns collection, no columns are listed.  Is there not a way to make these modicifactions through the designer?

Thanks,

Scott

Hello Scott,

 When the grid AutoGeneratedColumns is true (by default) you will not get any columns in the column collection design-time. You can set this property to false and declared (and format) desired columns. 

Kind regards,

Vlad,

Thanks for your response.  Any chance that you might make radGridView work like the default grid (i.e. splits column names up based upon casing, and let's you adjust layout and names of autogenerated columns?

Hi Scott Roberts,

We have plans to introduce a better design time support in one of our feature release but it is still unclear when the improvements will be available. Thank you for your valuable feedback, we will for sure consider your input when working on our design time support. 



All the best,
