Hi,
I am using the gridview for the first time
And I need a simple combobox column

I have List<string> Types collecation that is holding all the types
Now the gridview is populated from data source with column Type (that is string)

All I need is to show the combobox column <telerikGrid:GridViewComboBoxColumn 
with the proper selection of the Type

Tried to do it for a 2 hour...
Please help

Thanks

Hi Felix,

Firstly, you may take a look at our online documentation and demos that demonstrate how to implement GridViewComboBoxColumn. Furthermore, you may take a look at this forum thread for additional information or this one for a sample project.

The difference between the "sample project" you provided and my case is that you are using custom classes for the "Countries" and the "Persons".
Where I have "List<string> Types" (no IDs) and "TypeName" from the DataSource (the table)

So in my case:
<telerikGrid:GridViewComboBoxColumn 
Header="Type"
ItemsSource="{Binding Types}" //this is the List<string> Types

DataMemberBinding="{Binding Type, Mode=TwoWay}" // Type is a column in the table
DisplayMemberPath="" //? it's from the List<string>
SelectedValueMemberPath="" //? it's from the List<string>
SortMemberPath="" //? it's from the List<string>
SortingState="Ascending" 
/>

Hello Felix,

I am sending you a sample project illustrating how to bind the GridViewComboBoxColumn to list of strings. In this case you need to set only the DataMemberBinding property and the ItemsSourceBinding (ItemsSourceBinding is used in case the source is defined inside your business object, otherwise you need to use ItemsSource).
 

Kind regards,
