I have a grid whose width is "1*". So the actual width desided at runtime I think.
Within that grid i have another grid whose width i want to set to the runtime width of parent grid. How Can i do that in xaml through binding.

What about setting the child <Grid>'s HorizontalAlignment to Stretch, which is default, in fact?
Also you can always attach to parent <Grid>'s SizeChanged Event[^] and get value from SizeChangedEventArgs[^] or read parent ActualWidth Property.
 
General Binding approach should look like this:
<grid width="{Binding ElementName=LayoutRoot, Path=ActualWidth}" />
but as I tested it, it worked only in VS designer and not in run-time. Why? -don't know :(
