Hello,
I’m shifting from WinForms UI to Telerik WPF UI and I can’t find any control like WinForms Binding Navigator. After looking into documentation I found CollectionNavigator control but that’s not what I was looking for.
As per this Telerik blog (https://www.telerik.com/blogs/a-binding-navigator-in-the-xaml-world) I tried creating a WinForms like Navigator. But unfortunately it is throwing null reference exception in design time every time we try to re-build it. I have downloaded code from blog only and trying to run it. Please see the screenshot attached.

Would you please let me know if there is any control like this in Telerik WPF or if there is any solution for the code in the blog.
Thanks,
Kishan

Hello Kishan,

Currently, there is not such control in the UI for WPF suite. In order to achieve your requirement you can use RadToolBar for the navigation part and RadPropertyGrid for the current item information.

As for the example from the blog post. The error appears only at design-time. If you run the project the control will be shown properly.

II hope that helps.

Is there any way to resolve that design-time error?

Hello Kishan,

To resolve the error go to the BindingNavigator class and include a null check for the "obj" parameter of the IsCollection() method. Here is the modified version of the method.
private static bool IsCollection(IEnumerable obj)
{
    return obj != null && GetEnumerableGenericArgument(obj.GetType()) != null
           && obj is IList;
}
Then rebuild the projects and re-open the Visual Studio designer.
