Is there a way to add the value from a navigation key on a DataGrid column that is bound to a field from it's Entity container field. This sounds hard to describe!
 
I have a field that holds a weight, same table has a referenced table for types of weight i.e. lbs, kgs, etc... So I want the column to show 6kg instead of 6.
 
My first idea:
 
 <asp:BoundColumn DataField="Weight" DataFormatString="{0:<%# Eval("WeightType.WeightType") %>}" HeaderText="Weight ></asp:BoundColumn>
 
I know illegal as all get out, so is there a way to concatenate this?

Just messing around I found you can use the ItemTemplate and add 2 labels, viola! Hope this helps someone else.
 
<asp:templatecolumn>
                <HeaderTemplate>
                  <asp:label id="lbHeader" runat="server" text="Weight" />
                </HeaderTemplate>
                <itemtemplate>
                  <asp:label id="lbWeight" runat="server" text="<%# Bind("Weight") %>" />
                  <asp:label id="lbWeightType" runat="server" text="<%# Bind("Weight.WeightType") %>" />
                </itemtemplate>
              </asp:templatecolumn>
 
All I need now is a better title for searches.
