C# – programmatically add column & rows to WPF Datagrid

c++datagridsilverlight-2.0wpfwpf-controls

I'm new to WPF. I just want to know how should we add columns and rows programmatically to a DataGrid in WPF. The way we used to do it in windows forms. create table columns and rows, and bind it to DataGrid.

I believe WPF DataGrid is bit different the one used in ASP.net and Windows form (correct me if I am wrong).

I have No. of rows and columns which I need to draw in DataGrid so that user can edit the data in the cells.

Best Solution

To programatically add a row:

DataGrid.Items.Add(new DataItem());

To programatically add a column:

DataGridTextColumn textColumn = new DataGridTextColumn(); 
textColumn.Header = "First Name"; 
textColumn.Binding = new Binding("FirstName"); 
dataGrid.Columns.Add(textColumn);
