Hey guys,

I've been following your documentation at:

http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/grid-model-binding-and-strongly-typed-data-controls-support.html

I'm trying to get the strongly typed binding to work. I am setting the ItemType to a publicly available object and I cannot seem to access Item object in my radgrid binding in the ItemTemplate. I've followed the examples to the tee and cannot get this to work. I've also tested this on the same page with a asp:GridView and it works great. I have the latest version of telerik AJAX controls (Q2 2014). I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Can anyone help?

Hello Richard,

Could you please confirm that you are using .NET 4.5 and that you are setting the correct ItemType property to both, RadGrid and MasterTableView.

For your convenience I have prepared a very simple example demonstrating how to use custom type and how to access the properties through the Item in the templates.

Hope this helps.

I was having the problem where I had specified the on the Rad Grid element:   
ItemType="MyNamespace.ClassName"

But the ItemTemplate in the GridTemplateColumn was not picking up the specified type using the syntax:
<%# Item.PropertyName%>

This included intellisense not picking it up and also resulted in a compiler error.

The way to fix is to make sure you specify the Item type on the RadGrid Element and also the MasterTableView element.

The telerik documentation does not seem to show this anywhere.

Hello Steven,

Thank you for pointing to us that the information is not clear enough. I have updated the article and the change will be reflected after the next documentation update.
