Null reference exception occurs when adding a new row for the DateTime column type in SfDataGrid - From 179495

But I found another strange problem; the DateTime column crash the application (System.NullReferenceException), when I try to add a new row and then to edit it.

A sample of the column:

            sfDataGrid1.Columns.Add(new GridDateTimeColumn()
MappingName = "Date",
HeaderText = "Data",
ColumnMemberType = typeof(DateTime),
Pattern = DateTimePattern.ShortDate,
AllowNull = true

Hi, I've attached the original modified project. In that case the problem still occurs.

The reported issue occurs because the instance is not created for the underlying collection, which is already stated in UG.

To resolve this, you can define the default constructor for underlying data. Otherwise, create an instance of data object by handling AddNewRowInitiating event.

Find the UG link and test sample.
