How can I bind an enum to SfDatagrid GridComboBoxColumn?
Example :

public enum Gender

I need to display values 'Male' and 'Female' in the combobox  using MVVM.

Hi Rahulan,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion Support.

We have analyzed your query. You can bind the enum to SfDatagrid by using “ObjectDataProvider class.

Code Snippet [XAML]:


        <ObjectDataProvider x:Key="enumdata" MethodName="GetValues" ObjectType="{x:Type sys:Enum}">


                <x:Type TypeName="local:Gender" />




<Syncfusion:GridComboBoxColumn MappingName="EmployeeGender" ItemsSource="{Binding Source={StaticResource enumdata}}"/>

We have also prepared the sample based on this and please find the sample under the following location,

Please let us know if you need further assistance.

Thank you,

Jai Ganesh S
