Question,

I have a datagrid that I want to show Enum's by using the "DataGridEnumColumn" control.
Could someone please provide a sample on how to accomplish this in xaml?

Regards,
Colin

Hi Colin,

An example would be:
<datagrideditors:DataGridEnumColumn Binding="{Binding LicenseState}" MinWidth="100"
        MinDropDownHeight="175" MinDropDownWidth="175" Header="License State" />
You can drop that into our License Dashboard demo to see it in action. You will also need to add the following property to the Customer class:
public LicenseState LicenseState { get; set; }

I think I need to clarify my question.

Here is the scenerio. My Datagrid's ItemsSource is a Data Tables Default View.
Here is a XAML Code Sample

<DataGridEditors:DataGridEnumColumn
                                x:Name="m_MyColumn"
                                Header="My Column"
                                Binding="{Binding Path=MyColumn}"
                                EnumType="{x:Type Enums:MyEnum}"
                                MinWidth="150"/>
the Drop Down List Populates with no problem. Here are the issues that I am running into

** I can not display the current Value From the DataTable.
** I can not update that value.

Do I need to implement a Converter?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Colin,

If the underlying type in the DataType is not MyEnum, but instead a string or int. Then yes, you'd probably have to build a custom IValueConverter and use that in the Binding.

If I double click on a DataGridCell in a DataGridEnumColumn, should the cell display a textbox or a dropdown? I ask since the EnumPartTextBox  uses dropdowns but when I double click on a cell in a DataGridEnumColumn, all I see is a textbox.

Thanks,

H Craig,

Try setting the column's IsEditable property to false and see if that helps.

I gave this shot but it still doesn't work. I'm sending a sample over that demonstates the problem.

Thanks,

Hi Craig,

Sorry that was our bug.  The DataGridEnumColumn.DropDownButtonVisibility property should have been defaulting to true but it currently is defaulting false.  You can set it in your XAML to true until the next version.  Also you can take the IsEditable setting back out too.
