how to bind GridDataVisibleColumn from ObservableCollection programmatically?

          Could you tell me how to bind GridDataVisibleColumn from ObservableCollection<ColumnChooserItems> programmatically without using binding property in design view?

Thank you.

Hi Shwe,


Thank you for Contacting Syncfusion support,


We have analyzed your query. You can bind the GridDataVisiblecolumn in code behind instead of binding in XAML from ObservableCollection. Please refer the below code snippet.


Code Snippet[C#]:

ObservableCollection<GridDataVisibleColumn> _Columns;

ObservableCollection<GridDataVisibleColumn> Columns


            get { return _Columns; }

            set { _Columns = value; }


public ObservableCollection<GridDataVisibleColumn> GetColumns()


  var columns = new ObservableCollection<GridDataVisibleColumn>();

  columns.Add(new GridDataVisibleColumn() {MappingName="CustomerID" });

   return columns;



public MainWindow()



  Columns = GetColumns();





We have prepared a sample based on this and you can download it form below location,

We have a SfDataGrid control like GridDataControl. But compare to GridDataControl, SfDataGrid having a better performance and flexibility. SfDataGrid assists you to create entirely customizable and highly interactive features used to display and manipulate the huge amount of data. So, we suggest you to use SfDataGrid instead of GridDataControl.


We have prepared a sample based on the same scenario in SfDataGrid and you can download it from below location.
