Hi, I have a problem with the GGC that I can't figure out. I have to display Users in my GGC with a column image representing the Profile Picture.
  • How can I map the Image Column to the datasource field that contains the image data?
  • Which data type should the field use? Byte array, Bitmap, Image...

The column is already set with Apperance.AnyRecordFieldCell.CellType = Image.

Hi Alessandro,   
Thanks for using Syncfusion products.   
Suggestion 1   
We could understand your scenario. In order to populate the images from the datasource, the corresponding column type can be set as Byte[] array in DataSource. The images will be loaded into the grid by its corresponding byte values. Please make use of below code and sample,   
Code example:   
//To add the image column into DataTable   
//To add the image for the ImageColumn   
Byte[] imageArray = System.IO.File.ReadAllBytes(FindFile(@"flower" + i % 3 + ".jpg"));   
dataRow[3] = imageArray;   
//To set the datasource   
this.gridGroupingControl1.DataSource = dataTable;   
Suggestion 2   
In order to load the image for an Image CellType column, the following ways can also be used,   
  • QueryCellStyleInfo event.
  • Using Appearance property.
Please refer to the below KB link.
