Hi Guys,

This page (http://help.syncfusion.com/ug/wpf/grid/default.htm#!documents/datatemplate.htm) states it should be possible to access underlying object bindings within a Data Template via {Binding Record.Data.xzy}.  

This doesn't appear to work - do you have an example/sample that demonstrates this for the GridTreeControl?

Hi Adam,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion Support.

We analyzed your query. In GrirTreeControl don’t have support to access underlying object bindings within a Data Template via {Binding Record.Data.xzy}. In our UGDocumentation we put this information as wrongly. We will change this information in our UGDocumentation ASAP. But you can bind some other object value to DataTemplate column means use QueryCellInfo event and store the items to e.Style.CellValue2. Using this CellValue2 you can bind the other object value within DataTemplate. Please refer the below code snippet

XAML code:

<syncfusion:GridTreeColumn HeaderText="First Name" MappingName="FirstName" >


                    <syncfusion:GridStyleInfo CellType="DataBoundTemplate">



                                <TextBlock Text="{Binding Style.CellValue2.LastName}"/>







C# Code snippet:

void Model_QueryCellInfo(object sender, GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs e)


    if (e.Style.CellType == "DataBoundTemplate")


        var node = treeGrid.InternalGrid.GetNodeAtRowIndex(e.Style.RowIndex);

        if (node != null)


            var item = node.Item as EmployeeInfo;

            e.Style.CellValue2 = item;
