    I'm attempting to bind a floating point single (type is Single in VB.Net) to the value of databar and getting an error that a conversion cannot be made from Single to Double?

    I've not experienced this with other controls.

    A single is required in this case because the object is serialized and compressed. Using a single saves disk space.

    Further, I need to provide the type Object to the Value property because in some cases I'm providing an Int32, whereas other times I am providing a Single. This is done via a datatemplate in a GridView.

    It seems that if I provide anything pother than a double, the RadDataBar throws exceptions?

    Am I overlooking something?

    Hello Berney,

    In this case, you can specify a Converter in your Binding expression that will do the necessary logic to provide the Value property with the expected double value. For additional information on Converters, please refer to MSDN.
