Xceed Data Grid - ColumnHeaderStyle

Dec 21, 2012 at 11:41 AM


is it possible to edit the ColumnHeaderStyle Property of the Xceed DataGrid in the CommunityEdition?

I used the regular WPF DataGrid Control und there I can set the ColumnHeaderStyle Property, where I've a filter control, to use filtering within the DataGrid control.

ColumnHeaderStyle="{StaticResource {ComponentResourceKey TypeInTargetAssembly={x:Type Filter:DataGridHeaderFilterControl}, ResourceId=DataGridHeaderFilterControlStyle}}" 

Kind regards

The "ColumnHeader" class is represented by the ColumnManagerCell class in the Xceed DataGrid.

Create an implicit style on this class:




<Style TargetType="{x:Type xcdg:ColumnManagerCell}">

I've some problems regarding the style and the control template...

So, in my style for the ColumnManagerCell I've a setter for the Template-Property:

<Style x:Key="{ComponentResourceKey 
                   TypeInTargetAssembly={x:Type local:XceedGridHeaderFilterControl}, 
           TargetType="{x:Type xcdg:ColumnManagerCell}">
<Setter Property="Template">
        <ControlTemplate TargetType="{x:Type xcdg:ColumnManagerCell}">
           <local:XceedGridColumnFilter Margin="1" Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="0"
                                        AssignedDataGridColumn ="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType={x:Type xcdg:ColumnManagerCell}}, 

In my code for the "FilterExtension" my "AssignedDataGridColumn" is always null. Is my binding wrong?

The "AssignedDataGridColumn" looks like that:


        public static readonly DependencyProperty AssignedDataGridColumnHeaderProperty =
            DependencyProperty.Register("AssignedDataGridColumnHeader", typeof(ColumnManagerCell), typeof(XceedGridColumnFilter));

        public ColumnBase AssignedDataGridColumn
                return (ColumnBase)GetValue(AssignedDataGridColumnProperty); 
                SetValue(AssignedDataGridColumnProperty, value); 


Maybe you can give me another hint.

Kind regards

Now I've written my own control which is set as DataTemplate in the FixedHeader part of the DataGridControl. This will work for me.
