Indexers in Mapping Names?

Quick question: can I use an indexer in the MappingName property text of a GridDataVisibleColumn? I can get the code to compile and run, and the Visible column is added to the GridDataControl, but there seems to be an issue with the binding at the moment. I just want to know if this is possible so I don't waste time seeking a solution if one doesn't exist.


OrderGridDataControl.VisibleColumns.Add(new GridDataVisibleColumn() { HeaderText = "Unit Cost", MappingName = "Unit[0].Cost" });

Thanks in advance,

Hi Will,


Thanks for using Syncfusion products.


We have analyzed your query with our sample and please find our response below.


We can use an indexer in the MappingName property text of a GridDataVisibleColumn, and for this we need to set VisibleColumnType and Binding property for the particular column. We have prepared sample based on your requirement and it can be downloaded from below location.


Sample Location: MappingName.zip


Please let us know if you have any queries.

This worked. I was previously unaware you could set a Binding in addition to a MappingName on a column. The samples and documentation led me to believe databinding was solely performed through the MappingName property.

this sample doesn't seem to show the use of an indexer...
Can you please post a solution that does?
