It is possible to bind an sfgrid to ObservableCollection()?
I have already populate an ObservableCollection() with auto columns but nothing appears on the grid.

Hi Giorgos Papadakis,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion Support.

We have analyzed your requirement for "Dynamic Binding". We have already considered this requirement as a feature and currently working on it. This feature will be available in our Volume 4, 2015 main release which is scheduled to be released by the second week of January, 2016.

my question is if sfgrid for xamarin.forms now supports binding to dynamic columns/data?
And if so, please providea few lines of code how to use the function.

Hi Valentin,

We have analyzed your requirement. Currently there is no support for Dynamic Binding in Xamarin.Forms. It is a limitation of the Xamarin product without a JIT. Hence SfDataGrid for Xamarin.Forms too does not support Dynamic Binding. For more details regarding this, please refer the below Bugzilla link.

However, SfDataGrid for Xamarin.Android supports dynamic binding and please let us know if you require any details on it.

Hi Sathya,
thank you for your response!
So currently it is not possible to create columns on runtime and fill them from an compex datastructure?

Hi Valentin,

You can create columns in runtime in SfDataGrid when you are binding a static data source. Whereas, you cannot bind dynamic objects as data source in Xamarin.Forms since it is a limitation of the Xamarin product without a JIT.

Please let us know if you require further clarifications.
