dynamic itemssource inside datagrid


perhaps there exists a solution for my Problem.


but this sample download works not.

Could you please reactivate also other examples. many links to sample files doesn't work.

If it's impossible, would you mind to offer a sample with a Combobox column .

The itemssource depends on the Content of the row

Hi Andreas,

Sorry for the delay caused.

We can set dynamic Items Source for Combo Box in GridDatacontrol by using QueryCellInfo event. Here, you can retrieve the Particular record from its CellIdentity and also you can check for the Particular column using its mapping name and can assign your dynamic items source to that particular cell as in the following code snippet.

Code Snippet:

void Model_QueryCellInfo(object sender, GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs e)


            var style = e.Style as GridDataStyleInfo;

            var cellidentity = style.CellIdentity;

            if (cellidentity != null && cellidentity.Record != null && cellidentity.Column.MappingName == "State")


                //Here based on the cellidentity.Record, you can apply items source 

                var Record = cellidentity.Record as Model;

                var item = Record.Country;


                if (item.ToString().Contains("USA"))


                    e.Style.ItemsSource = new USStateRepository();



                e.Style.CellValue = ((ObservableCollection<String>)e.Style.ItemsSource)[0];


We have also prepared a sample based on this and attached it in the following location.

The given example works. But say, if I resize the column the event "Model.QueryCellInfo" calls again and I loose my selected item. There may other UI interactions as well which may call QueryCellInfo event.

Do you have solution for this?

Hi Andreas, 
We have analyzed your query and you can achieve you requirement by using below code snippet 
void Model_QueryCellInfo(object sender, GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs e) 
            var style = e.Style as GridDataStyleInfo; 
            var cellidentity = style.CellIdentity; 
            if (cellidentity != null && cellidentity.Record != null && cellidentity.Column.MappingName == "State") 
                var Record = cellidentity.Record as Model; 
                var item = Record.Country; 
                if (item.ToString().Contains("USA")) 
                    e.Style.ItemsSource = new USStateRepository(); 
                else if (item.ToString().Contains("Australia")) 
                    e.Style.ItemsSource = new AusStateRepository(); 
                else if (item.ToString().Contains("India")) 
                    e.Style.ItemsSource = new IndStateRepository(); 
                var itemsource = e.Style.ItemsSource as ObservableCollection<string>; 
                    e.Style.CellValue = ((ObservableCollection<String>)e.Style.ItemsSource)[0]; 
Please find sample for the same from below link
