    Re: How to add Data to a WPF datagrid programmatically

    Hi Jacob,


    In the following MainWindow.xaml I name the Grid MainGrid to access it in the code behind:

    <Window x:Class="WpfExperiments.MainWindow"
            xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
            xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
            Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525">
        <Grid Name="MainGrid"/>
    </Window>

    The DataItem class is not a WPF class, but a custom class created by Yourself:

    public class DataItem
    {
        public stringColumn1 { get; set; }
        public stringColumn2 { get; set; }
        public stringColumn3 { get; set; }    public stringColumn4 { get; set; }
    }

    To let the DataGrid display data stored in DataItem objects programmatically, You may do the following:

    public partial class MainWindow : Window
    {
        public MainWindow()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            // Your programmatically created DataGrid is attached to MainGrid here
            var dg = new DataGrid();
            this.MainGrid.Children.Add(dg);
            // create four columns here with same names as the DataItem's properties
            for (int i = 1; i <= 4; ++i)
            {
                var column = new DataGridTextColumn();
                column.Header = "Column" + i;
                column.Binding = new Binding("Column" + i);
                dg.Columns.Add(column);
            }
            // create and add two lines of fake data to be displayed, here
            dg.Items.Add(new DataItem { Column1 = "a.1", Column2 = "a.2", Column3 = "a.3", Column4 = "a.4" });
            dg.Items.Add(new DataItem { Column1 = "b.1", Column2 = "b.2", Column3 = "b.3", Column4 = "b.4" });
        }
    }

    I hope this helps.
