  • Hi,

    You can create a DataForm at runtime and then add it to visual tree. You will need to add different kind of datafields based on your table's content. About the validation, please check:

  • hello,

    thanks for the response .

    i know how to insert/update/delete  & validate (using DataAnnotations) items in dataform from xaml but not in codebehind.

    regarding the validation , i will annotate the model class, and dataform(which is created at run time) will do the validation.

    at this point i have created the dataform , but cant define datatemplate dynamically so that i could add stackpanel to it and in the stackpanel i shall add the controls(based on the value). can you provide some code which shall create datatemplate dynamically and items to it ?




    also , please provide the code which shows, how will i add the dataform to the main grid. :)
