I currently have a DataGrid which is populated by a list using DataGrid.DataContext = list

My issue is that i need to edit these values in a seperate WPF window. I've read many articles about in-line editing, but not much on populating the table from another window.

The edit window will have OK and Cancel buttons, and should only mirror the changes back to the datagrid on the OK command. The secondary window should also be populated with the selected row's values. Can provide code so far if necessary.

i hope your main window contain DataGrid .
create a datatemplate
XML
<datatemplate x:key="DataTemplateBaseChargeSetting" xmlns:x="#unknown">
                <border borderthickness="1">
                          BorderBrush="Transparent"
                          CornerRadius="2"                          
                          HorizontalAlignment="Stretch"
                          Margin="2">                   
                    
                    <border borderbrush="Black">
                            BorderThickness="1"
                            CornerRadius="3"
                            Margin="2">
                        <grid>
                        <grid.columndefinitions>
                            <columndefinition width="auto" />

                    </textblock></grid>
                        </border>
                </border>
            </datatemplate>



behind the popup window u should create a clr property named as SelectedItem .
XML
private DataRowView _selectedItem;
public DataRowView SelectedItem
{
    get
    {
        return _selectedItem;
    }
    set
    {
        _selectedItem = value;
        OnPropertyChanged("SelectedItem");
    }
}


on edit button click event
call pop window

and create object of pop window and call their property and assign the selected row to that property

The data template didn't seem to compile too well - am i right in thinking that just goes in MainWindow.xaml?
vasim sajad 25-Sep-12 8:45am     CRLF
datattemplate should be place in xaml file not in xaml.cs file it cant be compile
Member 9454261 25-Sep-12 12:04pm
