Here is the class that populates each row:

 

    public class TableData  
    {  
        private string name;  
        private Image image = new Image();  
 
        public string Name  
        {  
            get { return name; }  
            set { name = value; }  
        }  
        public Image Picture  
        {  
            get { return image; }  
            set { image = value; }  
        }  
        public TableData(string s)  
        {  
            Name = s;  
            image.Source = new BitmapImage(new Uri("captain-scarlet.jpg", UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute));  
        }  
    }  
 

Here is how I set up the grid:

 

            ObservableCollection<TableData> theData = new ObservableCollection<TableData>();  
            theData.Add(new TableData("1a"));  
            theData.Add(new TableData("2a"));  
            radGridView1.ItemsSource = theData;  
 

 


The grid view appears and the name column shows data ok, but the image column is blank.
I see in the debugger that both columns in the grid are of type GridViewDataColumn. Should the image one be a GridViewImageColumn? If so, how do I set it up?

Any help appreciated - I'm trying to evaluate it for a potentially big project!
Thanks
Bruce

Hi Bruce,

The grid will not generate automatically GridViewImageColumn for auto-generated columns - you can declare this column manually similar to this demo:

Thanks for that. Are there any samples that show how to set up a GridViewImageColumn in C# code rather than in XAML. I can't seem to figure it out.

Many thanks

Hello Bruce,

All you need is to create the column, assign DataMemberBinding and add the column to the Columns collection:

var column = new GridViewImageColumn() { DataMemberBinding = new Binding("YourImageProperty") };
RadGridView1.Columns.Add(column);

Sincerely yours,
