Hi,

Is it possible to have different object in a DataForm and display autogenerate its properties ?

Sample :

List<Object> o = new List<Object>();
            o.Add(new CustomObject1());
            o.Add(new CustomObject1());
 
ARForm.ItemsSource = o;

I would like to avoid to create an Edition UserControl for each CustomObject because ther are all related.

Regards,
S

Hi Steven,

The current version of RadDataForm does not support binding to a collection of heterogenous objects.

The workaround I may suggest is to use external navigation for your collection and use the CurrentItem property to feed the RadDataForm , rather than the ItemsSource property.
