Nov 14, 2008 at 2:09 PM
Can you please show us how to access the DataGridColumnHeaderStyle?
I want to provide a context menu on these two headers? how do i do this?
I am using the following code snippet:


    <toolkit:DataGridTextColumn IsReadOnly='True' Header="OrderTime" Width="Auto"   Binding="{Binding Path = _strOrderTime}" >     </toolkit:DataGridTextColumn
    <toolkit:DataGridTextColumn IsReadOnly='True' Header="UserId" Width="Auto"  Binding="{Binding Path = _UserID}" />

Thanks for the reply but I am not able to get the context menu. Can you pls let me know what could be the issue with following code snippet. Don't seem to get this to work.


This is the code snippet that I have used:

<toolkit:DataGridTextColumn HeaderStyle="{Binding Path = ColumnHeaderStyle}" IsReadOnly='True' Header="OrderTime" Width="Auto"  Binding="{Binding  Path   =  _strOrderTime}" >

The Column Header Style:

<Style x:Key="ColumnHeaderStyle" TargetType="{x:Type toolkit:DataGridColumnHeader}" BasedOn="{StaticResource {x:Type toolkit:DataGridColumnHeader}}">

<Setter Property="Background" Value="{StaticResource DataGrid_Style0_Header}" />

<Setter Property="Foreground" Value="White" />

<Setter Property="HorizontalContentAlignment" Value="Center" />

<Setter Property="ContextMenu" Value="{StaticResource MyContextMenuDataTemplate}"/>

and the data template for the column header:

<DataTemplate x:Key="MyContextMenuDataTemplate">

    <ContextMenu Name="test">

            <Menu Name="colMenu">

            <MenuItem Name="temp" Header="temp"></MenuItem>

DataGridColumnHeader.ContextMenu is of type ContextMenu, not DataTemplate.

can you pls give some more explanation? Is there some
documentation for this grid. I could read and figure out.
Do you have some sample app or snippet that I can look at.
Any help would be appreciated...
