I have a Page containing a DataGrid. I need to populate this from 2 separate sources. The 1st three columns of data I read from a text file (both the column headers, and the subsequent rows of data).
After that there is anywhere from 1 to 100 columns I need to add that will just contain checkboxes.
I'm creating the 1st 3 columns as type DataGridTextColumn, and the remaining columns I am creating as type DataGridCheckBoxColumn.
I *think* I'm doing this all correctly, except for three problems.

1. I can't SEE the data in the 1st 3 columns.

2. When I try to click on the Checkboxes in the remaining columns they don't Check / Uncheck

3. If I double-click the checkboxes I get an error - "EditItem is not allowed for this view.

Below is the code that creates this grid. When I created a Winforms version of this dialog, I trapped the CurrentCellDirtyStateChanged to commit the Checked/Unchecked state, and CellValueChanged to operate on the resulting change. That's part of my Checkboxes problem - I haven't found a WPF equivalent.
Any suggestions on how to solve my problems?

Solution 1

you are adding (3 + data.SelectedAssays.Count) number of columns but supplying only three data fields
{strParts[0], strParts[1], strParts[2]};

so you have to specify for what all columns the data goes to

col.DisplayIndex = nIdx;
col.Header = strColHeaders[ nIdx ];
this.dgViewSamples.Columns.Add( col );

I suggest to use DataTable instead of direct data adding because the type of the columns are different.

Solution 2

Just put e.Handled = true; in both the events CurrentCellDirtyStateChanged CellValueChanged

I think it will help you.
