Hi,

    After researching the forum and all available examples I still have a problem.
    Dear Telerik team members, before you post here an examples please make sure you read carefully this question:

    I have a simple enum (for populating GridViewComboBoxColumn options), and integer value representing the current  value for each row/combobox
    I need to bind the enum to the GridViewComboBoxColumn using XAML only (without setting the code-behind as I use MVVM) and without creating for this an extra custom class
    In all examples that I found on your web site you use an extra custom class to represent the data and connect it to the GridVeiw

    Please provide an example that will have a DataGrid with GridViewComboBoxColumn that is databinded to an enum directly

    Thank you!

Felix,

I'm still working on a similar solution.  Did you ever figure out how to bind your GridViewComboBoxColumn to an enum?  I've got the binding working, but no drop down value is selected when the data is populated.

Thanks,
John

Hello John,

You can check our ComboBoxColumn WPF / Silverlight demo. In it, on the left side of the screen you will find a RadComboBox, from which you can choose what kind of binding you want to use. For example there is an option for "Simple binding to enum" that will suit your case.

In addition there is another approach with which you can achieve something similar. All you need to do is replace the GridViewComboBoxColumn with any other column and set its CellTemplate property to contain a RadComboBox. Then follow the example in this How to bind an ItemsControl to the values of an enumeration blog post. 

I hope this helps.
