bind xaml grid to collection object. RRS feed

  • Question

  • i have a collection built in the middle tier. how do i bind my grid to this object.


    all examples have collections build in code behind and use <local: collectionname.


    i think i need to use datacontext but i get the error the object was not found.


    any help would be great.

  • Hello, first make sure you’ve initialized the collection correctly. Then you can set the DataContext to the Collection, such as this.DataContext = myCollection. Now you can bind with something like:

            <ListView ItemsSource="{Binding}">



                        <GridViewColumn Header="Name" DisplayMemberBinding="{Binding Path=Name}"/>





    Or you can use a CollectionViewSource so you can perform operations such as sorting and filtering. Please have a look at Data Binding Overview, especial how to bind to a collection.
