hi all,
i recently started using telerik controls for wpf.

i wud like to save grid settings like column order, grouping, sorting etc.
i want to have a column chooser for my grid and save the columns users select along with other settings.

Hi sandy pochiraju,

Yes it is possible. If you look at the Save and Load of the RadGridViewSettings class you will see that the grid settings are saved to an loaded from a stream:

public void Save()  
{  
    using (IsolatedStorageFile file = IsolatedStorageFile.GetUserStoreForApplication())  
    {  
        using (IsolatedStorageFileStream stream = new   
            IsolatedStorageFileStream(PersistID, FileMode.Create, file))  
        {  
            serializer.WriteObject(stream, this);  
        }  
    }  
}  
 

There is no problem to write the serialized settings to a MemoryStream instead of FileStream and save this stream to a database. Similarly when you want to load the setting you should get the serialized stream from your database, create a memory stream from it and load the setings.

Sincerely yours,
