I am a non-developer trying to mock up applications using Telerik Sliverlight controls in Microsoft Expression Blend 3.

In the Expression Blend 3 assets, under Controls > Telerik RadControls for Silverlight Q1 2010 > GridView, I added a RadGridView element to the screen.  The grid has columns like ContactName and Address - how do I customize these columns? With a standard DataGrid, I am able to drag and drop my custom data collection into the DataGrid and the DataGrid displays the custom data.  The RadGridView won't let me do that.

Hello Chris Cole,

There is no problem to bind RadGridView with data generated by Blend. Could you please take a look at this video - when you are about to drop the data of the grid do not forget to press Shift key.

Hope this helps.

Everything worked up until the Create Data Binding step.  I don't see "ItemsSource" as an option for the Property of the RadGridView.  I see ItemContainerStyle and ItemTemplate.

Hi Chris Cole,

Most probably some of the required references are not added to the project. The required references for RadGridView are Telerik.Windows.Controls, Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input, Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView, and Telerik.Windows.Data. Once all of those binaries are referenced you should be able to bind to the ItemsSource property.

Hope this helps.
