DisplayMemberPath not working with Arrays

Hi,

I want to add a list of classes at the DataSource and the class has a string[] property with name "Entries".
For example in the SfDataGrid I add as MappingName = "Entries[0]" and the Cell references to  any_object.Entries[0].

I hoped that it works simliar to DisplayMemberPath but I got not the same successful result.

Does anybody has a hint?

My code:

...

_comboBox = new SfComboBox();


_comboBox.IsEditableMode = false;

_comboBox.MaximumDropDownHeight = 200;

_comboBox.HeightRequest = 40;

Entries = new ObservableCollection<SelectionViewEntry>();


_comboBox.DataSource = this.Entries;

_comboBox.DisplayMemberPath = "Entries[0]";


...


public class SelectionViewEntry

{

public string[] Entries { get; set; }

}

Hi Thomas Loidolt, 
 
Greetings from Syncfusion. 
 
We checked the given code snippet and when using String [] type for the data source it returns only the array object. We have also tested the same String [] type data with the ListView control and it also returned only the array object. We have prepared a sample on how to use a collection of a custom class and display the desired property using DisplayMemberPath. Please find the sample from the below link. 
 
 
For more information about using “DisplayMemberPath” property is given below: 
 
 
Please check our sample and let us know if you have any concerns.

Hi,

your solution is not working for my requirements but I found another way to solve it:

public class SelectionViewEntry
{
public int ColumnIndex { get; set; }
public string Entry { get => Entries[ColumnIndex]; set => Entries[ColumnIndex] = value; }
public string[] Entries { get; set; }
}

And this is a working example of SfDataGrid and MappingName:

_dataGrid.Columns.Add(new GridTextColumn() { MappingName = "Features[" + i.ToString() + "]", HeaderText = item.Value.Value, TextAlignment = item.Value.HorizontalAlignment, FontAttribute = FontAttributes.Bold });

BR,Thomas
