System Data


Now, a DataTable collection can be directly bound to SfDataGrid.ItemsSource as shown in the below code example.


public class MainActivity : Activity
        private SfDataGrid sfGrid;
        private ViewModel_ DataTable viewModel;
        protected override void OnCreate(Bundle bundle)
            sfGrid = new SfDataGrid(this);
            viewModel = new ViewModel_ DataTable ();
            sfGrid.ItemsSource = viewModel.Records;
            sfGrid.AutoGenerateColumns = true;


ViewModel_ DataTable.cs

public class ViewModel_DataTable : INotifyPropertyChanged
        public ViewModel_ DataTable ()
            Records = GetRecords();
        private DataTable records;
        public DataTable Records
                return records;
                records = value;
        private DataTable GetRecords()
            DataTable dataTable = new DataTable();
            dataTable.Columns.Add("Column1", typeof(int));
            dataTable.Columns.Add("Column2", typeof(string));
            dataTable.Columns.Add("Column3", typeof(int));
            dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { 1001, "Sean", 2001, "Jacobson", 3001, "Sean Jacobson", 4001, "Sean", 1001, "Jacobson" });
            dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { 1001, "Sean Jacobson", 2002, "Jacobson", 3002, "Sean Jacobson", 4002, "Sean", 1002, "Sean" });
            dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { 1003, "Jacobson", 2003, "Jacobson", 3003, "Sean Jacobson", 4003, "Sean", 1003, "Jacobson" });
            return dt;
        public event PropertyChangedEventHandler PropertyChanged;
        public void RaisePropertyChanged(string propName)
            if (this.PropertyChanged != null)
                this.PropertyChanged(this, new PropertyChangedEventArgs(propName));



View filtering is not supported by SfDataGrid while binding a DataTable collection.
