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,
