Hi.

When you add a comment to a cell in MS Excel, you get a red triangle in the right top corner of the cell.
I would like to do the same on my grid. I have added the tooltip to the cell, but I would like the indicator that there is a comment on the cell.

Any ideas?

Hi Eduan Marais,

The sample app attached demonstrates how to achieve that.

Hi Pavel.,

Do you perhaps have a wpf example?
Also. Any way to do it in code, not in the xaml?

Hi Eduan Marais,

RadGridView for Silverlight and RadGridView for WPF share a common codebase  and this approach is 100% applicable for WPF. With some copy/paste you should be able to make it work in WPF.

Although there is a way to do it in code , I would strongly not recommend it.

Hi.

Surely it must be safe to do it in code. In my case, I need to build the grid in code, as the content and layout is not fixed - it is populated in runtime.

In my xaml, I create a tabpage, and thats it. Only if the user request data in a grid do I create a grid and populate it - all of it needs to happen in code, I cant create it in the xaml. So I need to create the template that creates the red square in code, I have no choice.
I was hoping for a property to show the square - maybe a add on in a future release?

Thanks for your example though, it works really well.
