    How do I expose properties of the RadGridView?

    I want to add features to a reusable version of the gridview that can be used in many places in my app in various ways, but allways exposing the additional features to provide a consistent look and feel.  I wrapped a user control around a working version of the grid and went to replace the grid in the app with the wrapped grid.

    The challenge at this time is I want to set the properties of the inner grid from xaml similarily to what I did when the gridview was directly embeddedm but I need to do so via the outer user control which is all the page knows about now.  

    Do I need to create a dependency property to allow the Xaml to access the properties of the Inner Grid via the wrappers grid property?

    I want to turn:
    SelectionMode="Extended"
    into something like:
    InnerGrid.SelectionMode="Extended"
    but I get that the attachable property is not found, and research on that seems to indicate I need to set up the RadGrid as an attachable property, which leads me to dependency properties, but I want to be sure I am headed in the right direction.

    Hi,

     Indeed the correct way will be to create desired properties for the user control and bind RadGridView properties to the user control  properties.
