I'm trying to display a person last name + first name in one column with the GridDataUnboundVisibleColumn but so far it's not working...

My grid is binded to a ObservableCollection of Couples, and each Couple contain a Man and a Girl object.

This is what I did, and it's thowing an 'System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException' :

<SF:GridDataUnboundVisibleColumn HeaderText="Girl" Format="'{Girl.LastName} {Girl.FirstName}'">
<SF:GridDataUnboundVisibleColumn HeaderText="Man" Format="'{Man.LastName} {Man.FirstName}'">

Hi Jean Michel,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

We have analyzed your code snippet and it will work only in normal property so if you are using complex property then you have to use following the code snippet for combine two property value in single column.


Code snippet[XAML]:


<syncfusion:GridDataUnboundVisibleColumn HeaderText="ComplexProperty">





              <ColumnDefinition Width="40" />

              <ColumnDefinition Width="*" />


            <TextBlock Grid.Column="0" Text="{Binding Path=Record.Data.Complex.EmpID}" />

            <TextBlock Grid.Column="1" Text="{Binding Path=Record.Data.Complex1.EmpName}"/>







We have prepared simple sample based on your requirement and please find the sample under the following location.


Sample: GDC_ComplexPropertyBinding.zip


Please let us know if you have any queries.

Thank you for your response, this "Record.Data" is exaclty what I was looking for to be able to use Templates. It's perfect.
