Hi Raghu,


Thanks for using Syncfusion products.


We have analyzed your query, you can achieve your requirement by enabling ShowRowHeader API as true and you can set the row numbers in the row header by handling QueryCellInfo event. You can handle event inside a Behavior in MVVM pattern.



Code Snippet:


     <syncfusion:GridDataControl x:Name="SyncGrid"


                                    ItemsSource="{StaticResource ComboSource}"










    GDC.Model.QueryCellInfo += new GridQueryCellInfoEventHandler(Model_QueryCellInfo);



        void Model_QueryCellInfo(object sender, GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs e)


            var style = e.Style as GridDataStyleInfo;


            if (style.CellIdentity.TableCellType == GridDataTableCellType.RowHeaderCell)


                e.Style.CellValue = e.Style.CellRowColumnIndex.RowIndex;






We have prepared a sample based on your requirement and attached it in the following location.
