I would like to invite you to read the first installment of the Columns & Rows series on the Silverlight 2.0 DataGrid that is being published by ASPNETPRO magazine. Columns & Rows Part I: Silverlight 2.0 DataGrid Properties
This article is the first in a series that will tackle most of the features of the Silverlight 2.0 DataGrid. There are several sections to discuss and explain regarding the Silverlight 2.0 DataGrid, including an overview of the DataGrid properties, auto-generating columns, defining columns in XAML, defining columns at runtime, implementing master/detail features, paging and sorting, and editing/deleting/adding rows using the DataGrid.
Through the course of this article, you’ll get an overview of the majority of the DataGrid properties that play an important role in configuring the DataGrid, like setting the column width and row color, and alternating colors, among other things.
Hope you enjoy and benefit from reading it.
