Something like this:
<syncfusion:GridDataVisibleColumn HeaderText="Random String" Width="100" MappingName="TestObjs[UniqueKey]">

Never mind. Figured out I need to set "Binding". I guess I'm really confused about what "MappingName" and "Binding" are. And when are they matter when using VisibleColumn or UnboundVisibleColumn. Can you clarify? Thanks.

Hi Michael,


Unbound visible column is derived from VisibleColumn and it is used to display additional information which is not present in underlying data by handling <Event>.


MappingName and Binding used to reflect information from underlying data. When MappingName is used data will be reflected using C# reflection concept and when Binding property is used, data will be reflected using BindingWrappers. In some cases, we could not reflect the data based on MappingName. So those cases, we have to use Binding property in VisibleColumn.


Please let us know if you have any queries.
