How to insert other controls inside a GridCell?

SfDataGrid displays the values of the binded data objects in the GridCells. It allows you to insert any type of data and also to customize the views inserted in the GridCell. To customize the views inserted in the Gridcell, you have to create a template column and use a custom GridCell derived from the GridCell in the template column.

You can refer the following user documentation link for more details regarding usage of TemplateColumn.


Refer the following code example which illustrates how to insert a Syncfusion Chart control in the GridCells by using the template column and custom GridCell.


GridTextColumn chartcell = new GridTextColumn();

                             chartcell.Width = 250;

                             chartcell.UserCellType = typeof(ChartCell);

                             chartcell.MappingName = "Transactions";




Refer the following screenshot for the final outcome
