How to: Bind a Control to Data Created at Runtime

Show Me

A complete sample project is available in the DevExpress Code Examples database at http://www.devexpress.com/example=T604166.

This example binds a GridControl to a collection of custom Record objects and demonstrates the following features:
- Assigning an inplace editor (combo box) to a column
- Specifying a column's display name and data format by applying DataAnnotation attributes to Record class properties
- Two ways of changing cell values - at the data source and grid level.
- Highlighting cell values that meet a condition
