I've got a series of DataFormDataFields, and I want the text within one of the boxes (if generated) to call a function if it's clicked once. When I attempt to style the text, I lose the textbox itself. All I want is for the DataMemberBinding to be blue and have an underline so it looks like a hyperlink almost. Here's what I'm trying:

 

<telerik:DataFormDataField  x:Name="Number"
                                                Label="Number"
                                                LabelPosition="Above"
                                                Foreground="{DynamicResource StandardForeground}"
                                                Grid.Row="1"
                                                Margin="0"
                                                IsReadOnly="True"
                                                Mode="ReadOnly"
                                                Padding="2"
                                                DataMemberBinding="{Binding DataContext.Number, Mode=OneWay, RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType=UserControl}, UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged}" Template="{DynamicResource HyperlinkNumber}"/>
 
 
            <ControlTemplate x:Key="HyperlinkNumber" TargetType="{x:Type telerik:DataFormDataField}">
   <Grid x:Name="PART_DataFormDataFieldGrid" Margin="2">
                <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
                    <ColumnDefinition/>
                </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
                <Grid.RowDefinitions>
                    <RowDefinition/>
   <RowDefinition/>
                </Grid.RowDefinitions>
 
                <ContentControl x:Name="PART_Label" Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0" Content="Number" Foreground="{DynamicResource StandardForeground}"  Margin="5,0,0,2"/>
<ContentControl x:Name="PART_FieldsContentPresenter" Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="0" Content="{Binding DataContext.Number, Mode=OneWay, RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType=UserControl}, UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged}" Margin="2" Foreground="Blue"/>
    </Grid>
            </ControlTemplate>

 

Once I hit this point, the textbox looking element disappears so I haven't even tried getting the underline or making the element clickable. Is there some additional content control that will make the box appear? Thanks.

Hello Stephen,

The built-in mechanisms for customizing a DataFormDataField is either through a custom DataField, or through the DataTemplate Selector functionality of the control. It is also possible to change the ReadOnlyTemplate/EditorTemplate/NewItemTemplate of RadDataForm at runtime, however, we do not have an example demonstrating the desired customization. Moreover, I cannot confirm that it can be even implemented.

All the best,
