GridDataControl and ItemContainerStyle


I have a standard WPF-DataGrid like this:

<DataGrid Name="dgEmployee" AutoGenerateColumns="True" IsReadOnly="True"     SelectionMode="Single" ItemsSource="{Binding Employee, NotifyOnSourceUpdated=True}">            <DataGrid.ItemContainerStyle>
        <Style TargetType="{x:Type DataGridRow}">
            <Setter Property="caliburn:Message.Attach"
                        Value="[Event MouseDoubleClick] = [Action OpenChild($executionContext)]"/>

When I double click on a row, then in my ViewModel the OpenChild(Employer emp) method is called and the row context is given as argument . These works thanks to the Caliburn Micro framework.

Now I of course would like to use the Syncfusion-GridDataControl but obviously it does not have an ItemContainer like the standard one or I can't find it. What is the equivalent part of the GridDataControl, is it possible to style it like that? I have a workaround but it's not the best solution and I still try to go via styling the "ItemContainer".

Thanks in advance

Hallo again,

I forgot to mention that I've already made some tries for example with RowStyle:

<syncfusion:GridDataControl Name="gdcEmployee" ItemsSource="{Binding Employee}" ShowGroupDropArea="True" ShowAddNewRow="False" AllowDelete="False" AllowEdit="False"   AllowSelection="None" EnableBlendStyling="True" ActivateCurrentCellBehavior="None">
        <Style TargetType="{x:Type syncfusion:GridDataRowControl}">
            <Setter Property="caliburn:Message.Attach"
                Value="[Event MouseDoubleClick] = [Action OpenChild($dataContext)]"/>                

But unfortunally no success so far.

Hi Rajasekar,

thanks for you answer. Unfortnately this is not exact what I've asked for. Question was if the Syncfusion-GridDataControl has something like an ItemContainer and, if yes , how is it possible to style this. I already have an easy solution with binding the selected item but I wanted to try on the other way.

Anyway, thanks a lot for your answer and showing me something new.

Hi Charalampos, 

Sorry for the delay.

At present there is no support for ItemContainerStyle API in GridDataControl. You have to use the Style and GridDataStyleManager in GridDataControl to apply style in the GridDataControl

Please let us know if you have any questions.
