WPF: Binding Dictionary to DataGrid and making it editable.



Basically, I would like to make  "Property Editor" using Dictionary and DataGrid by storeing "properties" (key&value pairs) into Dictionary and DataGrid to display and edit. 

I was able to successfully bind using below code.

It displays Key&Value pairs fine in the DataGrid but it won't allow me to edit the Value.

It says, "EditItem is not allowed for this view"

How can I do this using DataGrid and Dictionary?

Is there better way to make property editor with FLEXIBLE number of properties?

I emphasized "flexible" because the property entries/definition can frequently change and I thought Dictionary was perfect for this.

Thanks a lot!

Textbox Editable GridView in ASP.NET

This article describes how I made a fully editable gridview in C# using ASP.NET 2. The idea is that the GridView looks and works like an Excel spreadsheet. You see all the cells in the table, and you can edit any of the cells you like, and they are automatically updated (i.e. saved to the database). This is very often how people expect data tables to work in web pages, and I've often seen people clicking in vain on un-editable gridview cells, somehow expecting to edit them, and not understanding that they need to click an Edit button at the end of the row.

How to format and update GridView and DataGrid rows using JQuery

The behavior described in this question is as expected. When you set text of a cell in grid, it directly affects HTML that is going to be rendered. When you set text value of a cell, it means that you are setting innerText of the cell. The column that GridView creates for command fields (Edit, Delete and Select) are a (anchor) or button elements. So you can see what will happen if you set text value in that cell. It will wipe out those link or button controls and replace them with simple text string.

Use Jquery with repeater, gridview, datagrid

ListBox tricky to set in a DataGrid/GridView

Listboxes are very tricky to set selected items in grid - there is no real nice way to do it. It would have been great if Microsoft included a property that accepts an array or comma separated values - or anything! But they only allow each item in the list to be selected individually. The way to do this in a grid is a bit messy, but it is fairly simple to implement. When a row is created (as per the event), select the items of the listbox as per the datagrid source data:

How to highlight datagrid or GridView row on mouse over?

This article will show how you can Ajax with GridView to display popup messages when mouse moves over certain column. In the demo project I have added first column as an image column with a help icon in it. This kind of implements a feature that if you want more information about the row you can move mouse over this icon, a asynchronous request is sent to server for data about that row and when call returns the returned message is show as a popup message.

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.

A datagrid control that can be personalized... anyone??


Hello all,

I need a datagrid control that has following features, besides other regular stuff like paging, sorting, filtering, etc:

The user should be able to -

1. Select columns to view

2. Select column Sequence

3. Select default sort column

4. Store the setting (as a view) and use it on next visit.

5. llow multiple such views to be stored for a user for future use.

All these settings should be saved and when the user comes back he gets the same settings.

Really appreciate your time and would love to get any ideas.

GridView: Move Over DataGrid, There's a New Grid in Town!


When incorporating the ASP.NET DataGrid control into your Web apps, common operations such as paging, sorting, editing, and deleting data require more effort than you might like to expend. But all that is about to change. The GridView control--the successor to the DataGrid-- extends the DataGrid's functionality it in a number of ways. First, it fully supports data source components and can automatically handle data operations, such as paging, sorting, and editing, as long as its bound data source object supports these capabilities. In addition, the GridView control offers some functional improvements over the DataGrid. Here DataGrid expert Dino Esposito introduces the GridView and explains all its long-awaited features.
