WPF in VS 2008, simple question.

Starting to learn WPF in VS 2008.

Here is a simple question. I have brought in a table in Data Sources, have created my query in Fill method. Data comes in good in Preview, but now having trouble binding it to WPF window. Tables don't have any drop downs to select what control to bring over to WPF window (like is suggested in help).

Need step by step instructions:

Using DataAdpter Fill method I want to bring data in some form onto the WPF window.
I could not find any datagrids for WPF in my Toolbox for some reason.
But we can first try with Listbox, or perhaps UniformGrid control?

The DataGrid is now part of WPF 4, starting with 2010.  It was "borrowed" from the WPF Toolkit.

Thanks, so what should I do in VS 2008 to display the data from the table I brought in to my project from the database. I have a table, and Fill method with my query. How can I make the data available in my WPF form?

What would be the syntax to make it available? Using dataadaptor?

If you use the WPF Toolkit DataGrid, then I believe that it should be something like this:

<dg:DataGrid ItemsSource="{StaticResource myData}"/>

No, don't have access to WPF datagrid, need to use other objects.

Bob LearnedCommented:
You should be able to download, and install the WPF Toolkit.

On my network don't have permissions to download it. Can you please paste the code here on how to bind or populate my Fill method in a table to a ListView?

Thx.

Bob LearnedCommented:
For ListView.ItemsSource, the syntax should be the same for the Binding.

What about Columns in ListView - they are not autoexpendable like in DataGrid?

Bob LearnedCommented:
If you are asking about AutoGenerateColumns, I don't believe that the WPF ListView has that functionality.

Ok tried that but getting only "System.Data.DataRowView" filled in in my ListView.

Perhaps something am I doing wrong?

Seemingly a very simple task - to get data in my table to the ListView, but so hard to find a solution.

Bob LearnedCommented:
Can you show me how you defined the columns for the ListView, please?

LenkaLAuthor Commented:
I figured it out, by putting my DataSet in the Collection and then binding that collection to ListView.

Thx.

Watch for my other questions on WPF.
