Dear all,
I create an application using WPF (MVVM) along with Telerik UI for WPF. I got into a problem with exporting gridview to excel using GridView's export method.
Simply saying, all column headers that contain custom header show a type name instead of Header.Text:
<t:GridViewComboBoxColumn  Name="InterestAlgorithmColumn"
                                               
                                             ItemsSourceBinding="{Binding Source={StaticResource InterestAlgorithmsViewSource},UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged}"
                                             DataMemberBinding="{Binding InvestmentAlgorithmCode, Mode=TwoWay, UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged}"
                                             DisplayMemberPath="AlgorithmName"
                                             SelectedValueMemberPath="AlgorithmCode"
                                             IsReadOnly="True">
                        <t:GridViewComboBoxColumn.Header>
                            <TextBlock Text="Algorithm Name" TextWrapping="Wrap"  Width="100"/>
                        </t:GridViewComboBoxColumn.Header>
                    </t:GridViewComboBoxColumn>

Is there a solution for this? Maybe there is another approach since I use custom .Header section because of Business wants to have the headers wrapped and setting Wrap in GridViewComboBoxColumn seems not working.

Regards
Tom

Hi Tomasz,

I already answered your support ticket on the subject. For convenience I will paste my answer here as well:

I would suggest to check the Export Custom Header help article for a reference.
