Binding itemsource for 1 combo box column from another combo box column in a datagrid

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

Have a hierarchical list of data that the user can select values from, however they have to select the second item from a list that is restricted based on the entry selected in the first combo box.


Item a

  • item 1
  • item 2
  • item 3

Item b

  • item 1
  • item 4
  • item 5
  • item 6

Item C

  • item 2
  • item 3
  • item 5
  • item 6

Does anyone have any ideas about how to go about populating the first and second combo boxes so that this would work?

Binding a computed value to datagrid column

Hi, I have a WPF Datagrid with tree colums (A, B,C) which are bound to an Observable collection. The value of C is C=A+B. The value of A and B are updated via an event that I have subscribed to ( a realtime data feed). What is the best way to update the value of C each and every time A or B get chaged ? I'm new to WPF and should I use a converter to achive this ? Thanks V

Dynamically Assign Datagrid Column Binding from XAML


I am trying to build a generic user control that will serve as a quick list maintenance screen.

I have a base ViewModel that has two string properties IDColumnName and DisplayColumnName and then a collection of objects to be edited.  Inherited view models will be created for each object type that needs to be maintained.  The usercontrols datacontext is set to the viewmodel.

What I want to do is have the datagrid, who's itemssource is bound to the collection of objects in the viewmodel, have one column and have that one column bound to the property specified in the DisplayColumnName property of the viewmodel, and I'd like to do it all in XAML.  I've got the datagrids rowdetailstemplate being dynamically determined based on the object type but am struggling with dynamically setting which property the one column displays.

How to add validation rule programmatically on datagrid column, whose itemsource is datatable?

I want as user ends editing a datagrid cell, a validation rule should be applied on this cell for error checking like whether its value is null or not and in case of null it should display the error on that cell. All this i want to do programmatically not in xaml. Can anybody guide me with an example ?

Multiple Column Dropdownlist for the ASP.NET DataGrid

Based on my previous control "Multiple Column DropDownList for ASP.NET", I received many emails asking for the same control to be used in the DataGrid for web applications. Here we go.. This control can be used as the regular MS DropDownList in the DataGrid and also as a regular dropdownlist. It has all the properties, like DataTextField, DataValueField, DataSource, SelectedIndex etc. The download file contains the samples both in VB.NET and C#. In this sample, I have used the Northwind database of SQL Server.

DataGrid: Tailor Your DataGrid Apps Using Table Style and Custom Column Style Objects


One of the most enduring challenges in writing user interfaces is figuring out how to display large amounts of data efficiently and intuitively without bewildering the user. The problem becomes particularly thorny when the interface must reflect hierarchical relationships within the data that the user needs to modify. The Windows Forms DataGrid control gives developers a powerful and flexible tool to meet this challenge. This article explains its basic operations and shows how to extend the DataGrid to display columns of data in an application-appropriate manner.

wpf charting column series data binding problem

I'm trying to build a chart using the columnSeries from the wpf toolkit and I appear to be having trouble with the data binding. Here is the xaml: <Grid>    <chartingToolkit:ColumnSeries Height="18" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="188,169,0,0" Name="columnSeries1" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="18" IndependentValueBinding="{Binding Path=Date}" DependentValueBinding="{Binding Path=Value}" /></Grid> In the code behind, I'm calling a stored procedure and putting the result in a datatable like this: string connString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["string"].ConnectionString;            using (SqlConnection cn = new SqlConnection(connString))            {                DataTable dt = new DataTable("T1");                cn.Open();                SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("T1_sp", cn);                cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;                  SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);                da.Fill(dt);                columnSeries1.ItemsSource = dt.DefaultView;                cn.Close();            } No error is being generated but I'm not getting a column chart either. If I take the same command and put it into a datagrid, it works fine. What do I need to do to get this into my column chart? If it helps,

WPF Datagrid Combobox column

Hi, I am creating a WPF Datagrid with the combobox column in it. All the datagrid binding and combobox column binding works fine without any problem. But, when I select a value in the combobox column and move to the next column or row, the value is reset to the previous empty selection. Am I missing anything here? Please find the code snippet that I have used below. <dg:DataGridComboBoxColumn x:Name="technicianname" Header="Assigned To" ItemsSource="{Binding}"/> technicianname.ItemsSource = dtTechnicianInfo.DefaultView; technicianname.DisplayMemberPath = "TechnicianName"; technicianname.SelectedValuePath = "TechnicianEid"; Thanks in Advance!!!

How to scroll the DataGrid (horizontally) when user drags a column header far left or right?

We're working with the WPF DataGrid and I have a question about  dragging column headers: The grid lets the user rearrange the columns, by dragging the column header left or right.  So far, so good. But, sometimes we have many columns, and only the first few columns are visible; so there is a horizontal scrollbar.  In such case, if the user drags a column header to the right edge of the DataGrid window, I want the DataGrid to scroll, automatically, one column at a time.  Is there an easy way to do that? (To be clear: yes, the user can already scroll horizontally by interacting with the horizontal scrollbar, but that isn't what I'm asking about.  I'm asking if the "drag a column header left or right" gesture can cause the DataGrid to scroll left or right.) I guess I could handle various low-level events, but it seems like it shouldn't be necessary -- DataGrid has so much functionality built-in, that I'm guessing it already has the ability to scroll when the user drags the column header to the edge.  So, is there either (a) a property that I can set, to tell the DataGrid to scroll when the user drags a column header to the edge of the window;  or (b) a code example showing how to achieve this effect myself?  Thanks!

WPF Datagrid with multiple row selection/checkbox column template

Hello, I am using the WPF Toolkit Datagrid with a checkbox defined in a template column/template cell. We are using the checkbox template so that selecting the checkbox will also highlight the row in the datagrid. Here is the template definition: <dg:DataGridTemplateColumn MinWidth="50" Width="Auto" Header="" CanUserReorder="False"> <dg:DataGridTemplateColumn.CellTemplate> <DataTemplate> <CheckBox IsChecked="{Binding Path=IsCheckedm, Mode=TwoWay}" /> </DataTemplate> </dg:DataGridTemplateColumn.CellTemplate> </dg:DataGridTemplateColumn> We are allowing multiple row selection in the datagrid and using MVVM (using MVVM Light). We would like to keep a list in the View Model of selected rows as they are selected/unselected. Any suggestions on how we can leverage MVVM to keep the list of selected/unselected elements current. Many Thanks --Sam

Hi, I am creating a WPF datagrid template column with combobox. The problem that I face now is, I am not able to bind a table to the combobox inside the WPF datagrid template column.

Binding combo box to List box

Hi,      I am fairly new to WPF and i am trying to bind two controls on a page.  What i have is a combo box with one datacontext and a listbox with another.  What I am trying to do is when you select an item in the combobox it will filter the listbox by that selected item.  Below is the xaml for the listbox and the combo box.  the data is the combo box is a code and description.  The code in the list is a key ( the code) and a list of items for that code.

WPF DataGrid Column Width issue

I have a simple window with 2 tabs, and 4 datagrids.  I set up each one with similar, if not identical settings.  They all get their own DataSet based binding, and have standard Text columns, and combo box columns.  Recently (past week) of development, while I was adding filtering/sorting/grouping features to my program, the column widths have begun to ingore my settings.  By collapsed I mean approx 20 pixels wide (just enough for the sorting Icon). Contacts datagrid, works great in run time, but in design time the columns are all collapsed. ContactsToClients data grid has no abnormal issues Clients datagrid AND Clients to Contacts datagrid look great in design time, but show collapsed columns in run time. How do I hunt down the problem?  I've tried removing all the temporary code, and rebuilding, closing Visual Studio and reopening.  I've remmed out the sorting code.  None of these have any affect.  It appears that my settings are all being ignored.  Here is the XAML code:   <Window x:Class="wdContacts" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006" xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008" xmlns:my

Error from AS2005 - Binding for column 'xxxxx' is not a ColumnBinding type

I've seen this question come up a couple times on the public .olap newsgroup, but I've never seen an answer, so I'm going to give it another try:I'm getting an error when I try to incrementally process my SSAS 2005 cube:    Errors in the high-level relational engine. The binding for the 'column-name' column is not a ColumnBinding type.In this case, the column name that's given is a name that occurs in only 1 table in the underlying schema, so I know unambiguously which column it's talking about.  The relevant part of the schema is roughly this:create table Date(    DateID int not null primary key,     /* ... */);create table File(    FileID int not null primary key,    FileDateID int not null foreign key references Date(DateID),    /* ... */);create table Fact(    /* ... */    DateID int not null foreign key references Date(DateID),    FileID int not null foreign key references File(FileID));The column that's named in the error message is File.FileDateID.  Note that this is not a pure snowflake schema - there's a "loop" that associates files with dates in addition to other date relationships within the main fact table.  I'm just guessing that the root of the problem has something to do with non-snowflake-ness of the schema.  Full processing of the database/cube works fine - it's only when I try to process incrementally or create aggregations that I get thi

Sort a WPF DataGrid on a Customized Column

I have several wpf DataGrids that use something similar to: {     Binding Path=ContactID, Converter={StaticResource contactIDToNameConverter}}"       As a best concept for various ID fields in my database.  This is great when needing to display editable data that is linked by ID, and my converter handles the validation and cleanup if needed. Otherwise an SQL View, or Joined Table SQL would not be able to send updates directly to the database (DataSet Wizard).  For this DataGrid's Contact column (bound to the ContactID field from a ICollectionView; bound to a DataSet.ClientsToContacts DataTable), I have an underlying value of Integer, and a converted surface value of String.  I want to sort on the string. Using ICollectionView.View.SortDescription(path,direction) will only sort on the Integer, and I am desprately seeking work arounds.  Please help. jvj
