SfDataGrid Deserialization Problem

Hi,

I have been using SfDataGrid in which I am using different type of bindings. There are converters, multi-binding and regular bindings with some GridComboBoxColumn,GridHyperlinkColumn and Template Columns. When i serialize my datagrid, everything seems ok. But when i deserialize it, some of my fields just wont bind. Instead there are filled with EntityFramework dynamic proxies. I attach an image of my SfDataGrid after deserialization. Below you can find xaml binding of the datagrid.

I appreciate any help
Thanks.

Hi Kemal


In your code snippet, you have used binding and multi binding in columns . We regret to inform you that the SfDataGrid does not have a support to serialize the binding datas. If you want to serialize the binding datas then you can write your own code to save the binding data as a XML format using XamlWriter.


MSDN Forum Link:https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/vstudio/en-US/8fbde488-c310-453b-b80c-5571e7631ce6/how-to-serialize-binding-and-data-templates-in-c?forum=wpf


Also you have set the MappingName as dot for some columns, and it will be treated as complex properties.
http://help.syncfusion.com/wpf/sfdatagrid/data-binding#binding-complex-properties


And also you have used same MappingName (.)for some columns. In SfDataGrid all operations (Sorting, Filtering and Grouping etc. based on MappingName only). So could you please use the separate MappingName for columns.


Also, you have also used GridTemplateColumn in your application. In SfDataGrid it is not possible to Serialize GridTemplateColumn. However you can achieve your requirement by manually adding the CellTemplate to the GridTemplateColumn by overriding the SerializationController like the below code example. We have prepared a work around sample as per your requirement and you can download the same from the below location,

C#


 this.dataGrid.SerializationController = new SerializationControllerExt(this.dataGrid);


    public class SerializationControllerExt : SerializationController

    {

        public SerializationControllerExt(SfDataGrid grid)

            : base(grid)

        {


        }


        //Serialization

        protected override SerializableGridColumn GetSerializableGridColumn(GridColumn column)

        {

            return base.GetSerializableGridColumn(column);

        }


        protected override void StoreGridColumnProperties(GridColumn column, SerializableGridColumn serializableColumn)

        {

            base.StoreGridColumnProperties(column, serializableColumn);

        }


        //Deserialization

        protected override GridColumn GetGridColumn(SerializableGridColumn serializableColumn)

        {

            return base.GetGridColumn(serializableColumn);

        }


        protected override void RestoreColumnProperties(SerializableGridColumn serializableColumn, GridColumn column)

        {

            base.RestoreColumnProperties(serializableColumn, column);

            if (column is GridTemplateColumn)

            {

                if (column.MappingName == "SupplierID")

                {

                    column.CellTemplate = App.Current.Resources["TemplateColumn"] as DataTemplate;

                }

            }

        }

    }
